Chocolate Surprise Cake – will with favourite treats

A super quick post to share the hubby’s Birthday cake – it was a “Sweetie Chocolate layered surprise cake”. It sounds far more grand and difficult to make than it is….. and everyone LOVED the surprise!!! The key to the “flatness of the cake” (my mother in law was asking), is to bake 4 “thinner” cakes. rather than say, two bigger ones and then cutting those in half to layer… my thinner cakes just didn’t rise as much and ended up much flatter naturally!

  • Use your favourite Vanilla sponge recipe x 2
  • Make up your mixture and then halve.. had  2-3 table spoons of cocoa (mixed with a little milk) to half the mixture.
  • Bake in four round baking trays

Once assembled use some of that “melt & spread” cake covering you can get from the shops (I actually found this the hardest bit)! and top with some unwrapped treats (ours are fudge sweets and twirls).
