I lost an hour the other day…..a whole hour just disappeared! And what was I doing? Well, I started browsing Pinterest for birthday cake ideas and that was that!
There are so many incredible ideas on there – mostly made by people with a lot more talent and patience than me, but I fancied giving this one a go as it looked impressive while not totally impossible!
The cake inside could be anything you wanted, but I did two layers of chocolate sponge, which I filled and covered with chocolate icing. The outside is KitKat bars stood side by side, and the top is made with smarties – lots of smarties!!! These are on their sides just pushed into the icing in concentric circles of colours. I needed three bags of smarties to cover the cake but there were plenty of spares from the colours nearer the centre……or at least there were until Ben got involved…
It’s a seriously indulgent cake – definitely one for a birthday because we all know the rule….birthday cake calories don’t count!
Happy birthday Aileen!
