Last weekend it was my sister’s 18th birthday, so a seriously chocolatey cake was in order. Enter: a fluffy chocolate sponge, smothered in 70% dark chocolate ganache and edged with milk and white chocolate fingers. I completed the mud bath with five little fondant piggies on top – but you could have more or less, or choose a different animal altogether!
This loaf cake is devilishly chocolatey: a light and fluffy chocolate sponge, smothered in rich chocolate buttercream and studded with Maltesers. It’s the ideal celebration cake for chocoholics, and it’s a hassle-free bake that’s perfect for when you don’t have much time to spare.
