Every chocoholic’s dream, the traditional chocolate cake is a delight all the way through. Chocolate sponge, frosting, and decorations, it’s a true indulgence.
Not so, according to Sophie. Cheaper chocolates can, in fact, be better.
Sophie said: “Don’t waste your money on expensive chocolates to put in cakes.
“You won’t be able to taste the difference once it’s mixed with other ingredients and baked.
“Expensive chocolates only use cocoa butter, but in fact, the extra oils in cheaper chocolates can actually result in better cakes.”
The baking expert told fans the humble carrot cake is “probably (her) favorite cake”.
