Maltesers Pouring Cake

Making a Maltesers Pouring Cake is actually not as complicated as you might think. Plus the finished result certainly has a wow factor when you present it to friends and family.

It has become a bit of a tradition now to make my OH a grand birthday cake each year. Previous years have seen me make him cakes using his favourite chocolates: a Ferrero Rocher cake and a Chocolate Orange one.

This year I was orignally going to make one using creme eggs, but then a certain young boy beginning with J said he fancied a Malteser one, and so that was the decision made! A Maltesers Pouring Cake it would be – he even helped me crack the eggs

I have made a few birthday cakes using Maltesers now (you can search them on my blog if you would like). However, I have never attempted the so called Pouring Maltesers cake effect. Therefore, I thought this would be the perfect oportunity. It was relatively easy, although it required more Maltesers than I had envisaged, and therefore,  I had to pop out to the shop late Friday night to get in some more supplies!

Plus, now I know for another time that milk chocolate would have been better to use as a ‘glue’ instead of the dark chocolate I had at home, so as to blend in better with the colour of the Maltesers. However that said, I think I just pulled it off.


So here is the recipe for my  Maltesers Pouring Cake
