I want to make the birthday cake from "How to Eat" for DP tonight, and I want to get ingredients on the way home from work, but I forgot to write down what I need.

I have flour sugar eggs butter cocoa powder etc, but I need condensed milk too, don't I? And what is the icing made of?

I have the recipe book at home, I just need to know what I have to buy!

Please help?

Thanks Soupy!

I need condensed milk, cream, and more chocolate than I thought in that case.

Mmm, very fat cake!

Is it a big or small tin of condensed milk?
