Happy Birthday Cake

It was my sister-in-laws birthday at the weekend, she who makes the most amazing cakes for everyone else. Along with my brother, she came for dinner on Saturday so it was my job to make HER a cake. No pressure! I have neither the skill or the patience for fancy decorations, but I can make a decent Victoria sponge. So this is what I went with

Can't really beat a cake/buttercream/chocolate combo. I've seen a couple of cakes like this on the internet recently, namely at Let's Cook at Home and A Spoonfull of Sugar, so came up with my own version. It went down a treat!

  1. Smarties and chocolate fingers?! It doesn't get much better than that! x

  2. Looks scrummy. Well I wouldn't say no to a slice!

  3. Lots of gorgeous chocolate - what a cake! Hope you have a good week.

  4. Is there any left !!!!!!! xx

  5. Looks great, not surprised it went down well. Just making her a special cake probably made her day, and who doesn't love smarties!
