A day like today, ago 4 years old, my son was born Mario. A unique and unforgettable date from which my life, and priorities that governed, radically changed, many things are relativized and, ultimately, my life took a back seat to that of his. Good, I guess those who are parents / mothers, all these things will ring and you will know very well … and also know that, every year, play the best birthday possible place our child / a. We had the party this weekend, and I ventured to make two cakes. Here I present the first, arm with cake and chocolate filling, coverage and cream cheese with chocolate color. The recipe is taken from anywhere, I've created a little my way from other arms made earlier. All I have compiled literally from the wonderful blog of Bea Roque, Bea's Corner, coverage was, which is what she uses for Red Velvet, I added the chocolate balls. Hope you enjoy the.


  1. Prepare a flat mold to make the cake, of 38 x 28 cm, lined with parchment paper.
  2. We separate the yolks from the whites and, in a bowl, we beat the egg yolks with 115 gr. sugar until pale and fluffy.
  3. Next, we beat the egg whites with remaining sugar in another bowl until it forms a meringue. Mix the meringue with the egg yolks.
  4. Sift together the flour, cornstarch and cocoa, and incorporate them to the mixture gently.
  5. Spread mixture in pan and bake flat 10 minutes 180 º C. Once out of the oven, after a few minutes, I stripped on a slightly damp cloth and wrapped it. We leave it wrapped in the cloth, at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible.
  6. To prepare the cream filling, melt the chocolate. We remove from the heat and add butter. Leave to cool the mixture.
  7. Whip the cream and add to chocolate, stirring to mix everything well. Here, a small subsection: This cream is not sweet, which, in contrast to the sweetness of the coverage I loved. But if you prefer, you can add sugar to the cream, more or less, depending on how sweet you like it. I believe that 2 a 4 tablespoons would suffice.
  8. Past necessary hours of rest of the cake, I roll out and extend the chocolate cream on the inner surface. You turn to enrollar, covering it again with the cloth, and let stand at least an hour and.
  9. To make the cream cheese coverage we beat all ingredients at medium speed, until we get a smooth mixture.
  10. We develop arm and cover it with cream cheese. Finally we have the Lacasitos and m&m's to our liking. I recommend that this last step, to judge, although this is somewhat tedious, just before serving the cake, for these delicious sweets beautifully fade after a while. I tell you from experience ..

Just say it, even a little laborious, venture worth with this cake. It is very tasty, and decorating kids love them, at least so it was Mario. See you soon!
