I am trying to make a Topsy-Turvy cake and I wanted to get a strong chocolate mud cake recipe. Here is a tutorial I found using one and it looks like it would hold up better.

Its a very dense cake and austalians use it a lot. There are different flavours of mud cake, such as, white choc, milk choc, and caramel and many more. They are great for carving too!

Anybody know what has happened to Cakes and More site. When I clicked onto the link it is so large and all over the place. Does anyone else get this problem. Thanks

I read somewhere a while ago that they *folded* due to *issues* between management and forum members - icon_confused.gificon_surprised.gif
BUT apparently there is a Cakes and More Blog - being run by the Moderator from there (Nicole)- sorry i don't have the site address but i am sure if you Google it will show up .
Last time i saw her - she was still active on the Australian Forum for Taste - Hope that helps you in your search.
She used to be very active over there - if you join that forum just place a thread putting out a call to her - someone will let her know.

Hmmmm, actually, she is a member on here - i have seen the occassional post.
Gawd - now i can't think of her forum title... icon_redface.gif
It is something like NVandanhout - - don't quote me - but again, something like that - (must be her surname)

CHOCOCLATE MUD CAKE - its like a very Moist Dense Sponge Cake.....light on the pallet
Keeps fresh for 6 - 7 days - freezers extremely well - and can be carved to any shape.
Very popular over here.
