Almond, Mocha and Chocolate cake


 With the kids at ex's I decided to bake a cake that was a little more grown up than usual an in flavours the kids mostly don't like so I made a batch of  plain cake batter, split it into 3 bowls and flavoured it with almond essence,  extra strong espresso and cocoa and put the flavours side by side in the long thin rectangular cake tine. In hindsight I think I should have done long thin stripes of it lengthwise or even one layer on top of the other to make sure that you can have all three flavours at the same time however I also wanted to save some of the cake for the kids (the chocolate bit) and did it like this. I won't be eating it *all* today - just a bit and freezing the rest in slices for a later date. I like how you can see which bit is which with the different shades of brown and think that if I did it the way I mentioned above it would make for an even better look. I won't be icing this cake - it looks fine as is :)
