A chocolate cake for Papa Salvatore

Sunday was our dad’s birthday. The parents flew down to KL on Monday and we gave him this cake for his belated birthday celebration with us.

I got the recipe from Sweetapolita’s blog here. She makes gorgeous cakes. I didn’t use the buttercream icing recipe though, I used her chocolate meringue icing recipe instead. It is lighter, which is perfect for our after dinner binge. Dusted the top of the cake with cocoa powder and added some chopped walnuts around the side. Oh, and a little sugar heart to finish the look.

Here’s with the candles on and blown:Image

Happy birthday, Papa Salvatore!
