About this deal

Please note, although the protagonist is named as Michael, to avoid confusion I refer to him either as ‘the protagonist’ or ‘the boy’. Michael Rosen tells the slightly humorous tale of the time he was a child and woke up in the night to look at the chocolate cake in the fridge and ended up eating the whole thing.

This is a great book for use in schools when teaching children about past tense or how to recount something. Michael Rosen’s stories are often inspired by his own life, and anyone reading Chocolate Cake definitely gets the impression that he might be drawing from his own childhood in this tale of the irresistible cake. However, the idea of a boy sneaking downstairs in the night to look at this big chocolate cake (with a cute dog at his feet)… and then to be unable to resist eating it bit by bit… well, it’s fun and is bound to get kids giggling, even if it hasn’t completely hit the mark with me.You can fill the cake with the same ganache you use for the coating, or you can do what I did and fill it with dulce de leche. Now, holding the palette knife horizontally, spread a layer of ganache on the top surface of the cake, making sure that you have an even coating. It seems like a match made in heaven as we learn what it was like for Michael as a little boy with a sweet tooth. I’m giving away a copy over on my instagram today, so go enter to win (easy—all you have to do is leave a comment), and skip on down for the recipe, below. Soften the butter (in a warm place or with a quick nuke in a microwave), then sieve in the icing sugar and cocoa.

Alongside this he performs, teaches, lectures, presents Word of Mouth on BBC Radio 4 and reviews books for the Guardian. And then I notice, that as I’ve tidied it up a little bit over HERE, then maybe I could just… even it up a bit over here.And then, I notice on the side of the cake there’s some little crumbly bits just falling off, so I think, if I take a knife, I could just…tidy it up a little bit.
