Yes JD, he had a construction themed party, lots of tip trucks and diggers. His father is a diesel mechanic, I can't imagine where he gets his enthusiasm for them from!

I think I went wrong somewhere with this one  :D
I followed directions and split into two ring tins. However the first one broke in half as I tried to remove it from the pan, 10 mins after cooling from oven. So the 2nd cake I left for 2 hours, but the same thing happened!! Very very oily. I might try again another day with less oil and see how it goes!

Did you line your tin Julia?  That might help remove it in one piece.  I just sit the ring pan onto the baking paper, draw a circle around the bottom, cut the marked circle out, fold it in halves then half again then cut the peak off in an arch which will turn into a circle when you open the paper.  Do it a small bit at a time until your circle is large enough to fit over the hump.

Thanks for the link CC. Unfortunately I also have to go nut free as one of the other guest is allergic to nuts. Hence I have looked at quirky cooking's site and she uses a lot of nuts in her recipes. Whilst there are recipes for dairy and nut free, my concern is more about taste. I have made the ILB chocolate cake a few times now and know from experience that it is delicious likewise for the Creamy Vanilla Frosting. Am very hesitant to try another DF and NF recipe only to have it taste very or worse less than ordinary.

Made this cake over the weekend for my in-law's anniversary and they loved it :)
Hubby was surprised that it was an eggless cake...

But just a small query, it was a tad little dry, not sure what I can do to make it a little more moist, any suggestions for next time?

I was wondering if anyone has put less sugar in this cake. I would like to try it but nearly 500gms of sugar.
