It was my youngest son's seventh birthday today. He wanted a cartoon type bomb as a birthday cake!
Because our oven has given up at last, I had to cook this cake in the microwave. Which worked out quite well. I used mixing bowls to cook it in, which gave a lovely round shape to work with. Also the cake was very moist so less crumbs dropped by the 15 kids at the party.
Now where was that case of wine and darkened room.
