Although I love baking and cooking, presentation has never been my strong suit. I firmly belong in the ‘rustic’ school of food preparation. With today being James’s birthday, I wanted to bake him a cake and put a little extra effort in.
I made a simple sponge cake and covered it in chocolate buttercream. Then, I covered the whole thing in Malteasers. I have to say I was a bit of a genius for thinking of this, as it looked awesome with very little effort. To be clear, I’m not claiming I invented this way of decorating a cake, just stole it to maximum effect.
I was really proud of this, it tasted amazing if I do say so myself, but most importantly James loved it. I would maybe consider putting the effort into decortating a cake nicely again.
