Naughty Chocolaty-Sweety Cake - Happy Birthday Leo!

Image
Children can give us bizarre ideas how to decorate a cake. When Leo visited us last week, and I was asked to make him a cake for his 8th birthday, I said "How do you want your cake to look like Leo?".  "Lot of chocolate and sweeties please!" he replied with a big smile and shiny eyes.  Leo is such a happy lovely boy, very sociable with a sweet constant question asking habit that I love. I made this 3 layers chocolate sponge cake all decorated with sweets and chocolate ganache, I thought this would be the perfect cake for him, and now it's ready to be picked by Leo's mum.. Happy birthday sweetheart! Mamatkamal

Figuig is a stunning little town in eastern Morocco near the Atlas Mountains.  The Imazighen locals call their town " Ifiyyey" which is an adjective derived from the   verb " Afey " and which means " Cover ". Figuig or Ifiyyey has the largest palmeraie  in Morocco with over 150,000 palm trees and I was told that the tall graceful palms are male trees vs female ones which are shorter.
