25g cocoa powder, sifted
silver shimmer cake spray (I used Dr Oetkar)
For the sponges
Preheat the oven to 180oC / 160oC fan
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy
Add the milk if required now and mix in.
Grease and line three 20cm diameter cake tins and divide the batter between them
Place in the oven and cook for 20 – 25 minutes until cooked through
Then allow to cool thoroughly before adding your buttercream and decoration
Now you can make your own chocolate buttercream by all means, but I cheated and bought some ready made – sometimes life is too short and they were on special so decision was made!
Simply empty a tub of the buttercream into a bowl
Crush half a grab bag of Maltesers so it makes lots of small rough and ready chards
Mix the crushed Maltesers into the ready made buttercream and job done!
Once your sponges are completely cooled, assemble by sandwiching them together using your Malteser buttercream
Then using your chocolate fudge rich and creamy icing, coat the outside and top of the cake with it
Then add your Kit Kat fingers around the perimeter of the cake – ensuring you ‘stick’ them to the icing well
Then tip your bag and a half of Maltesers on to the top of the cake to cover it up completely, and using your shimmer silver cake spray (optional of course, you could buy the gold one!) coat the entire coat to make it all shimmery and pretty
It is a bit if a monster cake and a little goes a long way – it is very filling indeed!
BUT for a special occasion like a birthday or maybe a Christmas cake it would be amazing!!!
So if you have any cakes or bakes that fit this theme please link up, or if you fancy making this yourselves then please link that up too. As always the linky will remain open until the end of the month and I look forward to drooling over all your chocolately loveliness!!
Thank you xx
