Method

  • STEP 1
    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Greece two 20cm sandwich tins and line with non-stick baking paper. In a large bowl (or mixer), beat all the cake ingredients together until you have a smooth, soft batter.
  • STEP 2
    Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth the surface with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then bake for about 25-30 mins until golden and the cake springs back when pressed. Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.
  • STEP 3
    Once completely cold, stick your bottom cake down to the cake mat and add a layer of the chocolate spread. Then sandwich together the other cake.
  • STEP 4
    Completely smother your entire cake with the chocolate spread, next layer the chocolate fingers round the outside of the cake at an angle. Now all you need to do is decorate the top of your cake how you like. See our cake for ideas, or just be creative.
