Chocolate Fudge Cake

My niece birthday celebration is this coming sat, so i try to bake a chocolate fudge cake for her.

I used Yochana's recipe, the cake turn out to be quite a success.

I manage to bake the sponge cake tall & mosit & cut it into 3 layers for the chocolate ganache. After assembled the cake, cream the whole with ganache and decorate with the vanilla topping bought from Mediya.... this is the first time i use this topping cream.... wow... it was soooo sweet! Wondering is there any way to make it less sweet.

After the fun decoration, i put the cake into the fridge to chill a little & also to let the ganache set. My boy was happy to see this chocholate cake & wanted to have a piece. After cutting, he just refused to eat so me & hubby finished up this piece of rich chocolate cake instead.

BUT... late in the nite my tummy wasn't feeling right... & started gg toilet for a few time from 4am~6am. wow.... i thought maybe i ate too much & drink fruity lite, drink juice so was ended up diarrhoea. Then morning, hubby told me he also had diarrhoea :(

I was like oh no... must the cake. this is the only food we had together. Till now, i am still thinking what could have gone wrong. So am having a second thought of baking this chocolate Fudge cake for my niece BD.


  1. I am sorry to hear of the diarrhoea.

    usually baked stuff are quit safe as I doubt any bacterias can survive the 180C temperature. It could be the ganache or the storage of the cake... Just try to think back the process where there could be contamination.

  2. yes... i also suspect the ganache & the storage of the cake in the fridge. I didn't have a proper storage for keeping cake in the fridge, so i simply put into the fridge without covering.... next time i shall not do that again.
