Nigella's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake

Yesterday I made a chocolate cake for a colleague's birthday. It's not usual to do this, but she is a) new, b) loves birthdays, c) brought me a gift back from her holiday in Tuscany, so I thought I'd make her a cake - d) she loves cake!
I followed Nigella's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake to the letter and this is my version:

Her reaction?
OH MY GOD I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH IT'S AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING!

She is quite enthusiastic about life, and it could be catching. Here's hoping!

I will add this to my Birthday cakes, which can all be seen on my Pinterest page.
