Well, it turns out not just my trademark, but also the only cake I can make.
As in, I was supposed to take in cake to Izzy's school for her birthday, tried to make a pink sponge cake and burned the outside. Plus it ended up orange. And uncooked on the inside.
Had to run out to Aldi the night before for cupcakes.
But this one I can do every time!
The recipe is here.
For this version (as a birthday present for my sister) I did two cakes and layered them on top of each other. The topping is 150ml double cream melted with about 300g of dark chocolate. Then I stuck some Malteasers in there!
I also did a version for Izzy's birthday.
I did two different sizes, the bottom one is covered in pink butter cream and surrounded with buttons. The top has chocolate topping with raspberries. Though if you do use fresh fruit try to do it as last minute as possible...
I did mine the night before and you can see that the moisture leaked out a little into the sauce. Ignore the crack, that's just me being clumsy!
The chocolate shapes and letters are SO easy. Just fill an icing tube with melted chocolate and pipe your shapes onto grease proof paper. Izzy did a sheet of her own too! Then used them to decorate the Rapunzel biscuits that were an actitvity for her party with her friends.
Phew, it's been a busy few weeks!
