Chocolate Fudge Heaven Cake

It was Sam’s 23rd birthday over the weekend, and in typical Manchester fashion- it rained ALL day. We still had a good day though- viewing some houses in the morning, followed by a few pints in the pub with my family, and a meal with his family in the evening. And you know me, I just had to go that one step further. So I made him his favourite cake. I adapted this recipe from a recipe I saw on BOSH on Facebook, and I added in an extra chocolatey twist to really make this the ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE DREAM. I promise.
