  • 150g butter, cold

  • *Decoration*
  • Maltesers - as many as you like out of a large bag (I didn't count them!)

  • Malteser Buttons - as many as you like out of a large bag
  • Red Smarties - ¾ of a £1 xmas tube

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. Grease and line 2 x 8 inch sandwich tins
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together for about 5 minutes until pale and soft
  4. Add the eggs and a spoonful of the flour and beat for a few more minutes
  5. Fold in the remaining flour and the cocoa powder
  6. Divide the batter between the two tins and then cook in the oven for 22-25 minutes approx
  7. Leave the cakes to cool
  8. Once the sponges are cold to the touch, make your frosting:
  9. Beat the butter for about 5 minutes until soft
  10. Carefully add your icing sugar and beat again until well combined.
  11. Add the melted chocolate and beat again until smooth.
  12. Now assemble your cake:
  13. Sandwich the two sponges together with some of the Malteser chocolate spread
  14. Now cover the entire cake with the homemade frosting
  15. Take your chocolate reindeer, and stick around the side of the cake alternating between a big and 2 small ones
  16. Once this has been done, carefully add the Malteser chocolates and truffles and smarties onto the top of the cake. I also added some of the red smarties onto the side of the cake, but it is all optional. You can decorate it anyway you like really.
  17. serve and enjoy 🙂
