No 3D chocolate printer? Get busy in the kitchen yourself!

Today, I sat in my car standing in non-moving traffic when the weather showed nothing but depression on my front window, I heard something that cheered me up: the first commercial 3D chocolate printer in on sale. Amazing, technology is not standing still, and apparently this is what it is leading to. Last year I already saw the news about “normal” 3D printer, but now there is also a specific chocolate version; for more information and movies go to this page.

If a chocolate 3D printer in not in your budget at the moment, the alternative is: get into the kitchen and get busy!

On request by my sister I made this delicious chocolate cake, for the and her work mates, which there better be many of because this cake was, like the last one, enormous. For the cake I used the base of this Bakerella cake, like I did the last time I have multiplied all ingredients times 1,5.

For the frosting I used this recipe of Nigella’s Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake, which goes perfect with this cake, and is quick and easy to make

The strawberries are my own addition

  1. Lovely photography. I read about 3D printing of pharmaceuticals only today. Amazing technology but I would prefer the chocolate version.

    1. Thanks!
      I saw the “normal” 3D printer last year in the news, but I would also prefer the chocolate version! Then again making your own chocolate sweetness is more satisfactory πŸ™‚

  2. That looks soo good – the strawberries make it healthy right? πŸ˜›

    1. Yes, you are absolutely right, the strawberries totally make up for the chocolate and sugar! Either way, you will feel better when you eat a piece!

  3. Oh my… I need to ask our IT department if we can have that πŸ˜€

    1. yes Kiki, I think this is a very essential item in any office!

  4. Oh my, that looks yummy! Chocolate and strawberries is heaven πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Kristina! I can honestly say, that this is a successful cake, everybody so far loved it!! πŸ™‚

  5. Whaaat?! Totally never heard of this printer! I so would buy it if I could.. but alas, I’m far too broke ):

    The cake looks FABULOUS though! The day 3D printers make this cake…. mmm.

    Thanks for the recipe though! I’ll definitely be trying it soon (:

    1. πŸ™‚ haha Hira, I’m too broke too for this printer πŸ™‚ but making it yourself gives you much more satisfaction! You won’t regret making this cake!
