Wow these cakes looks awesome. I even don`t care that they are such calories bombs 🙂

You are so very talented to produce cakes like that and pics like that too! Amazing. I am virtually smacking my forehead at the sight of that chocolate brownie cake! X

I went off chocolate cakes as it was the only type that my children really wanted to eat so there was overkill. They now like lemon, ginger and even coffee…. however you may have tempted me back to the dark side with this round up….especially the rolo cake.
Wow, that rolo cake looks amazing!
Such a lot of rich chocolatey goodness!
Thanks for including mine!

It’s always hard to choose the best chocolate cake as they are all yummy! 🙂 But if I had to choose which are my favorites I would say rolo and vegan cakes
A delicious reminder of some of your gorgeous and beautifully photographed cakes. I am especially impressed that there are no gouges or small teeth marks from your children! Your Rolo cake looks to die for…. As for me, I’m making low-key chocolatey things this week, mostly for work. No cakes, sadly.
Nazima, franglais kitchen says
ooh these look good. I have had my eye on your rolo cake for some time. Need to save up my calorie allowance for it – perhaps for a birthday celebration. All of the cakes look amazing. Thanks for including mine x

It’s chocolate week and I wasn’t informed?! Oh, wait, hang on… it’s only Tuesday and so I can safely say I’ve already eaten some chocolate every day this week. So I don’t feel I’m letting the side down. But now I am very, very definitely off to the shops to purchase some Rolos. But I’m slightly confused (it’s not an uncommon feeling for me) – where are the other five cakes?
Ren Behan says
Hi Margaret there are five in the top slider (including the Rolo cake) click on the arrow and then five below in the square photographic grid with links below!
Margaret Baxter says
Ah, I see – five of you own and five more from around the web. Sharing the chocolate week love. Makes perfect sense now.
Yours are the best, of course, but you already knew that 😉
