Next month's challenge is being hosted by Ness of JibberJabberUK, so be sure to take a look at her blog on 1 October to find out what the magic ingredient is going to be.
Summer Cake. Dripping with luscious fruit as it is, it's hard to imagine anyone being able to pass this one by. Well done Dom.
vegan chocolate layer cake to celebrate We Should Cocoa and another of Dolly's birthdays - it seems she has quite a few!
triple chocolate mini bundts. Stacy of Food Lust People Love has created a real showstopper or should I say showstoppers.
Mr E's Birthday Cake. It made me smile and I'm quite envious of the jolly party had by all at one of my favourite places, Arthur's Seat.
rocky road chocolate cake was the result; it has seriously tempted me, I'm not leaving.
Queen of Sheba torte is a chocolate and almond one and the icing stays miraculously shiny even after setting.
Chocolate Courgette Cake has to be the most glamourous one I've ever seen. Elizabeth of Elizabeth's Kitchen made this to celebrate several birthday events and my only concern is how is she going to distribute it to interested parties in Canada, Cornwall and Shetland?
vegan gold leaf and chocolate cake - Bling Bling Cake, which kind of says it all. The lucky recipent of this one was Shaheen's nephew who was off to University for the first time.
Chocolate overdose pie anyone? I think all of these entries could probably claim that title, but laden with chocolate biscuits, melted marshmallows and cream, this pie does sound seriously wicked. Maybe it's just as well Kat of Life of a Cupcake Baker is too busy to blog so much these days.
butterscotch raspberry brownie and I really think I need to do something about it.
pink princess cake, hop over to Caroline's blog Caroline Makes for a step by step guide. It looks terribly clever and most professional. I'm sure the recipient Ros of The More Than Occasional Baker was extremely pleased with her birthday cake.
chocolate cake with milk chocolate crunch and caramel sauce is not likely to disappoint.
chocolate Guinness celebration cake from Ros of The More Than Occasional Baker was made for an Irish colleague's wedding anniversary. She even made some very cute chocolate champagne bottles to decorate it with. It was voted as one of the best cakes Ros has made this year.
white chocolate and lemon giant cupcake which she came up with sounds fabulous. It contained white chocolate and her own homemade lemon curd.
triple chocolate star cake from Alexandra of The Lass in the Apron is not only elegant, but is a masterpiece of chocolate indulgence. You name it, it's there - dark, white, milk, cocoa powder and not only that, it's an eggless sponge too.
milk chocolate and toffee cake.
Chocolate Chocolate Bailey's Cake.
black and white chocolate showstopper consisted of dark chocolate cake layered with white chocolate mousse and raspberry jam and was made for a friend's birthday.
anniversary cake, for this dark chocolate layer cake is filled with salted caramel and just in case you weren't already aware, this is one of my very favourite things. One filling was not enough for Erica though, a second fudgy walnut filling was also used and the whole thing was topped off by a dark chocolate ganache - mmm!
chocolate amnesia cake. Other than remembering it tasted very good and that I spent an inordinate amount of time whipping the ganache filling and topping, I am still no further forward in remembering how I made the cake.
birthday horse cake for her pony mad daughter whose 5th birthday it was. Never having tried anything like this before, she saddled up her creative streak and achieved a cake to be proud of.
chocolate and vanilla layer cake. Hannah insists the artful stencilling on the top is quite simple to do; I remain impressed but unconvinced.
chocolate and vanilla battenburg held together with white chocolate buttercream.
chocolate orb cake. Of course if it was a real orb sitting in the monarch's hand, it would melt very quickly leaving unbecoming smears on the ermine robe. Luckily, this one is sitting on top of a rather delicious looking chocolate cake, so disaster averted and pleasure increased. Inspired by Vivienne Westwood, this has a punky edge to it.
chocolate mousse cake contains copious amounts of chocolate and cream, ingredients without which life really isn't worth living.
