I have a recipe for a chocolate cake that I use all the time - its easy to make, moist and rich.

I double the recipe to make it a deeper cake and also it I want to use a bigger than 20cm tin and it works perfectly

What you need

2 cups of flour
2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

How to make

Preheat oven to 180c. Mix everything together until smooth. Pour into greased 20cm diameter (deep) cake tin and bake for 45mins (approx). Test with skewer, cake is ready when it is clean.

My go to Chocolate Cake has always been the Coca Cola Chocolate Cake Recipe here in the FL recipe bank

My granddaughter stayed over the school holidays and insisted that we make the same cake as her mum, which is on the Chelsea Sugar website here []

That also was lovely, but my favourite would still be the Coca Cola version

Carolynab, I suggest that as you have a five hour journey the day before the wedding, you don't want to be mucking about with Royal icing that needs time to set. I would go for the fondant icing you can buy in packs that just needs rolling out and draping on the cake, then whatever decoration you want, but something simple, like artificial ready made flowers and ribbons, etc.

Also, I'm no cake decorator but as the cake is going to be chocolate, you may need to put a marzipan layer between the cake and fondant to stop the fondant discolouring.
