chocolate galore | recipe

 After having a look through Instagram, I saw a cake which gave me some inspiration to create my own. It was basically a cake with each section having a different type of topping so I combined the ideas of sections and chocolate and this cake was born. Me and my friend Gabby dedicated our whole Saturday- sad but worth it- to create this little beauty. So I thought I would go through a step by step guide of how to create this cake if you fancy giving it a go for yourself. By the way it tastes just as good as it looks! P.s this is a very picture heavy post. Perhaps you could make this for Valentines day for a chocolate addict?

The ingredients you will need:
175g of butter or margarine
175g of Sugar
3 eggs
225g of self-raising flour
Pinch of Salt
2 tablespoons of milk
(200g Butter and 400g of Icing Sugar)- Buttercream
And a ridiculous amount of your favourite chocolates

 1. Cream together the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. You could either use a wooden spoon or electric whisk (the electric whisk is probably easier.)

 2. Add the eggs in one at a time, mixing well after each addition. (Three in total)

3. Fold in the flour, salt and the milk into the mixture

 4. And then mix all of it together, I'm not the only one who loves the taste of cake mix!

 5. Grease the tin with butter and then put the mixture into a tin or perhaps into cupcake tins if you wanted to make cupcakes instead. You then bake this by preheating the oven on Gas Mark 4 or 180'c for 30 to 35 minutes,

 6. You can then repeat steps 1-5 again to make the cake again and have two layers. After this step you can create the buttercream by creaming together 200g of Icing Sugar and 100g of Butter. This will be enough to fill the middle of the cake and you can then repeat this again to cover the top of the cake in buttercream. This is important as you need to the toppings to be able to stick to the cake!
 7. And then go wild and split the cake into roughly eight sections. You can then choose a different topping for each section. We choose Mini Eggs, Malteaser Bunnies, Maltesers, Oreos, Flakes, Reeces Cups, Kinder Buenos, Sprinkles and Kit Kats.

 And ta-da your cake is finished. We also surrounded the cake in three boxes of chocolate fingers! This cake is super duper easy to make and although looks sickly actually tastes amazing!
