Maltesers and Baileys Chocolate Layer Cake

This glorious Maltesers and Baileys Chocolate Layer Cake is easy to make, albeit a little time consuming when layering it, and definitely has a wow! factor. I feel that it is a showstopper, which is just as well as tonights Great British Bake Off final was all about show stopping bakes.
