Well it’s not every week that we can release a cake of this magnitude! This is large course containing 13 detailed lessons! The Chocolate Cottage cake sure gets anyone who sees it to take notice. It’s cute, detailed and really fun looking. You can easily get carried away adding bits to this one and letting your imagination take it anywhere! This cake is great cake for any occasion especially for someone who might just have moved house. It’s one of our harder cakes to make but don’t let put you off. Paul takes you through the entire thing in detail and really breaks in down into steps.
