Snowflake Cake

2015 marks the third year that I’ve made this cake as part of our family’s Christmas festivities. The cake recipe is by Frances Quinn, winner of the Great British Bake Off 2013.

I love this cake, it tastes delightful and is possibly my favourite cake to make!

I missed out taking photos of some of the steps because I was in a bit of a hurry to get the cake made on Christmas Eve! I’ll post some links to the recipe at the end πŸ™‚

Firstly it is safe to say that this cake is a bit of a Cadbury treat looking at these ingredients!

We start by making a ganache from double cream, dark chocolate and milk chocolate. The ganache is made first so it has plenty of time to cool before it is needed to decorate the cake! πŸ™‚

Then we make the cake with lots of goodies like Golden Syrup, more chocolate, butter, dark muscovado sugar, flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, egg, vanilla extract and milk.

After half an hour or so in the oven the cake comes out and smells amazing!

After cooling it’s time to decorate! πŸ™‚

Decorate with the ganache, white chocolate fingers, white chocolate buttons, Cadbury snowbites and Cadbury Winter Wonderland Chocolate.

I then put the cake in the fridge overnight to allow the ganache to set πŸ™‚
