Drama & Crisis Rolled Into Cake!

Today was the day I was going to make that cake.....
I got out of the house to get some milk from Lidl...
 
 
 I asked in Lidl if they sold the Wonky box.
They didn't :(
 Dunelm selling nice stuff...↑↑
Now to start on the cake finally...
Wrote out the recipe..
 Things didn't start brilliantly when I discovered we had no coco powder!
Into Sexy Beast to get some...
 
 
 I decide to use Kane the Kenwood this time.
It didn't help, that as soon I turned him on.
He went way too fast, and I lost most of the mixture through the gaping hole of the lid...
 I added some more mixture, and poured it into the cake tins..
Into the oven it went...
Time for much needed Coffee....
 Once the chocolate sponges were cooled down, I knew I was going to have problems...
I made the peppermint chocolate mix to go in the middle of the cake. The top sponge was falling apart. I add the shiny chocolate for the top of the cake....
Oh dear, this isn't going to end right....
I made a chocolate collar and put it in the fridge to set...
In the meantime...
It's tea time...
 Chop Chop Time.
 Vegetables in Creamy Mustard Sauce with Chorizo
To the sound of groans in my house..
Back to watch more Bake Off...
