There seem to be a lot of birthdays at work at the moment!
Hannah requested a chocolate cake for hers so I decided to make this one decorated with Cadbury’s chocolate fingers and Maltesers
I used Nigella’s chocolate cake recipe which has soured cream in it. I added some milk to the batter as it was quite thick.
I sandwiched the cakes together with raspberry jam and then covered the top and sides with ganache. I used 300ml double cream with 200g dark chocolate and 100g milk chocolate. Here’s a good article on how to make and use ganache:
Then I used a mix of white and milk chocolate fingers and placed them around the edge, put Maltesers on the top and tied it with a ribbon!
