Jackson Pollock meets Becca Bakes

This is a chocolate cake with white chocolate chips mixed in, ably assisted by Mini-Becca #2 while Mini-Becca #1 was at her last morning of school as a P2 girl (that's Grade 1 to you non-Scots out there).  It's then covered in chocolate icing and drizzled with melted white chocolate and topped with dark chocolate stars.  Why?  Well, firstly why not.  And secondly because we were going to play at Liz's house for lunch on the last day of the school year and she and I like to bake.  Lastly, I'd seen an idea for a 4th of July cake (we've been invited to a 4th of July party) and wanted to try out the icing technique.
