The Tale of A Chocolate Moist Cake

The other day I bought a chocolate moist cake from my colleague and Emerald really likes it. I was about to order again but at a second thought I said I better trying to make the cake myself. Browsing through the net I found several recipes of making the cake. After school hours ended on Friday I went to buy the ingredients needed. The baking session went on smoothly and so was the deco. But when Emerald tasted it in the morning she said 'yuck' and threw it outside the house. I was prepared for this as Ive tasted it the night before. It didnt turn out to be the same taste as my colleague's cake. The sweetness was not there and for sure it was not moist, the topping yes. What Ive learnt from this baking was that never trust an instant cake which everything was prepared in a box and only waiting for you to pop it in the oven. The outer side of it will turned out perfect but not the taste.
I knew the mistake, I should buy ingredients which have to be measured first before I bake them. On my second attempt which consists of measured ingredients for the concern cake, guess what?.. the outcome was really rewarding, a truly chocolate moist cake indeed it became, only I hope that no yucky things again in the morning..
the cake
the ganache topping
the whatever deco
tadaa...a slice of chocolate moist cake with mango as the background..the taste 'yummy' according to my tongue..
