My sister got me a cookbook for my birthday: It's called The Complete Book of Modern Classics and it's an Australian Women's Weekly cookbook published by APC in 2006.
I found this recipe for a Chocolate Fudge Cake, and mum is going to make it for my birthday dinner with my family tomorrow night, so I can tell you all how it was!
