Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake

This festive Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake would make a striking centrepiece on your table this Christmas. A chocolate sponge cake covered in various Maltesers chocolates and some smartie red noses too!

 

I was starting to panic that I was not going to get a chance to make this cake and blog about it before Christmas. As it is, I am cutting it very fine with less than one week to go until the big festive day! Thankfully, my boys have Christmas parties at school this week, so it was the perfect excuse to at last make this Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake.

Chocolate Reindeer Swiss Roll

Give a chocolate swiss roll a festive make over and turn it into a Chocolate Reindeer Swiss Roll, perfect for serving during the Christmas holidays.

Now I appreciate that when you think of Christmas and chocolate Swiss rolls, you tend to think of a chocolate Yule log. Many a time when I was a young girl, I would turn a humble shop bought Swiss roll into an edible tile log, something which my brother and I enjoyed eating. However, instead of this, why not make a Swiss roll into a Chocolate Reindeer , complete with edible antlers and facial features.

Carrot Bundt Cake

This easy to make Carrot Bundt Cake is light, moist and flavoured with warm spices and a subtle tang of orange. It is dairy free too. Give it a try next time you fancy making a carrot cake.

Carrot Cake is very popular with my children, and I like to think that with it containing fruit and vegetables that it is one of the more healthier cakes I make for them. With banana cake coming in a close second.

I usually make my carrot cake in a square tin so I can cut it into equals portions which are easier for their packed lunches. However, with it being National Bundt Day this week, I thought it was time to make a Carrot Bundt Cake.

These pretty little Pink Ombre Madeleines would make a lovely addition to any birthday party, afternoon tea or mini celebration.

It is semi finals week already! This makes me a little sad, for it means that GBBO 2018 is almost finished for another year. However, for my waistline it is probably a good thing, because all this baking while delicious is not good for my figure!  This week is also Patisserie Week and I have attempted a new bake this time, with my Pink Ombre Madeleines.
