Blueberry chocolate and cinnamon cake

My cake doesn’t look presentable as I would love it to be for my nephew to have a birthday cake to eat, blow out the candle. However, I have to accept it as it is. Anyway, it was during the Covid time, thus he can’t blow the cake. He use a fan to fan out the candle.

Even though there are some crack in my cake, I manage to cover it with icing sugar, chocolate, and blueberries. I am glad it’s turn out moist, and delicious. For I bake this cake with love poured out to make a birthday cake with heart shape chocolates. I am glad that everyone love it. Let’s bake!!!!
