Baking a cake

I got one of the Hummingbird Bakery cook books for my birthday which has some amazing cakes in.

I asked my boyfriend to pick one for me to make him as a birthday cake. He only went and picked one of the most complex cakes I've ever seen! 

So for my first real baking experience (other than packet mix cupcakes) I made a chocolate cake with vanilla meringue frosting.

I'm not overly skilled in the kitchen, but I'm very methodical, so I followed the recipe to the nearest tea spoon. Praise to the Hummingbird Bakery, as although it was quite a complex recipe, I found it relatively easy to follow.

The finished result...

Not quite as neat as the picture in the book, but it tasted delish!
