Tannu's Birthday... another reason...

It was the same as Aaliya's cake, chocolate cake layered with chocolate sauce, except for that I covered it with Swiss Meringue Buttercream, which according to Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook, pairs great with chocolate cake. And topped with chocolate shavings (chocolate at room temperature and a vegetable peeler), which incidentally was the only thing the two year old birthday boy (who insisted that it was Shaun the Sheep's birthday and not his) was interested in, the 'shabings'. My buttercream sorta curdled slightly on adding the cream, gotta find out why... It gave it a not so smooth texture, but otherwise (taste wise) it was good.

Picture taken with a cellphone, my feeble reason for the quality being poorer than usual :(
