  7. I had to share your post with my daughter who loves to bake and loves mascarpone cream and chocolate cake! We also couldn’t help noticing the skein of yarn and knitting needles by Tim and his cake … all love!

  8. Great! How do you do the chocolate sponge without flour?
    I just love all the other ingrediences, and not to use flour does make it even better!!!!
    So a recipe would be great!
    Thank you
