50g milk chocolate
packet of white chocolate buttons
packet of milk chocolate buttons
*or any other white or milk chocolate treats of your choice*
Then You Need To:
Grease and line 2 sandwich tins and pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC fan
Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy
Add the flour and eggs and mix until combined
Then divide the cake batter into two bowls
Add the cocoa powder to one and mix well
Add the grated white chocolate to the other and mix well
Then pour each cake batter into either two pouring jugs or two piping bags
Then pour/pipe each batter alternately into each cake tin into the centre, pouring/piping on top of the dollop of the previous batter dollop
The batter will disperse from the centre and fill the entire tin (you don’t have to do this you can just add the two batters to each tin normally and swirl at the end to make a marbled effect)
Then melt the chocolate for the topping – place the milk chocolate and half the orange buttons in bowl and either place in the microwave for 30 second intervals until melted (takes about 2 minutes in total) or place over a saucepan of cold water on a low heat and melt.
Now the sponges are cool to the touch, sandwich them together with your buttercream
Then spread the melted chocolate over the top sponge
Then decorate with your white and milk chocolate decorations – I am using buttons because my children (and OH) likes them!
And thats it, a double chocolate cake with a lovely marbled white and milk chocolate effect and flavour.
Thank you xx
