Fudge Picasso Cake from Maggie at Memorable Occasions

My family’s favourite cake is a Fudge Picasso Cake that I downloaded a couple of years ago. It is a very rich cake and irresistible, so I don’t make it often. (Have to watch my weight continuously!)” - Maggie Visser

Ooh, Maggie, my dear friend… you had me at ‘Fudge”!

Maggie discovered this recipe one day on a walk through Google Land. Unfortunately we do not know the original author, so if you happen upon this article and the name rings a bell, please let us know who designed this original recipe.

Lots of love from your favourite (very round) teddy bear chef, Fudge.
