A Chocolate Box of Tricks!

 

If you’re looking for a show stopper to score some serious points on the cake circuit, we think we’ve found one to ensure you reign supreme amongst your fellow bakers.  Whilst browsing the delights that the internet has to offer (from experience we don’t advise doing this whilst hungry) we came across the work of art that is a Chocolate Box Cake - a cake topped with a tuck box of sweet treats!  An article by The Whootexplains that after using your favourite cake as a base and covering it in icing you are ready to start separating the cake up into sections ready to be filled with which ever delights take your fancy. 

 

Truffle Selection

 

This genius creation is the perfect way to make sure all of your favourites are included -perfect for the indecisive and kid’s parties where different tastes need to be accommodated for (though we’ve yet to find a child that refuses anything packed full of sugar).  As much a work of art as it is a yummy desert a liberal sprinkling of smarties would add some colour or our Trufflesmay make for a more sophisticated look - available in Salted Caramel, Tripple Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Champagne you'd be making a chocolate box with a touch of luxury.  Alternatively, if you're after a cute look perhapes for a childs birthday  our  Simply Delightful Chocolate Buttons come in four flavours; plain milk, salted caramel, raspberry ripple and chocolate orange and would look oh so sweet on top of vanilla frosting... the only problem you'll have is choosing which flavour!  

  

 

If this is all sounding like a bit too much chocolate (it is possble you could change this for fruit to create your very own ‘fruit’ punnet cake. 

 

So if you have a birthday coming up, or perhaps you’re in training for the GBBO, this cake would make for a real wow moment.  The video below provides a tutorial to show how easy this cake is to make, simply make sure there are enough sections for all of your favourites!
