Toffee Apple Cake

 

This seemed like the perfect cake for Romy to make for her Halloween party at the start of Frisky Business. It's really a pudding cake and is good served hot or cold. It's a recipe from Edward Hayden that I got in a magazine. It's handy because the butterscotch sauce and apple sauce can be made in advance, and then the cake can be assembled later.

Chocolate Mousse Cake

This is the cake I imagined Kate making in The Disengagement Ring (minus a certain magic ingredient that gets added later). The cake itself is a baked mousse and has no flour in it, and the filling is also mousse, so it's all very light. And if you believe that ... well, you'll be surprised how rich this cake is. It's exceptionally good served with vanilla ice-cream.

I'm sure you all know the drill when making chocolate cake – use good quality chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids. It's quite an expensive cake to make because of all the chocolate, but a little does go a long way.
