Ok so this cake certainly has the wow factor! Whilst it looks quite tricky, its actually relatively easy to achieve. I made this one for my Grandpa’s 80th birthday, and he adores caramel, so naturally I had to cover the cake in as many caramelly chocolates as possible. Rolos, Munchies, Thorntons chocolate toffee and fudge pieces… But to give the cake a bit more hight I finished it with a shard of homemade chocolate, toffee bark and a couple of chocolate wafers. Simply divine!

So, the ingredient list for this cake is quite long, so grab a pen!

You will need:

For the cakes: 

(vanilla & chocolate sponges)

  • 225g soft butter
  • 175g light muscovado sugar
  •  50g dark muscovado sugar
  •  260g self-raising flour

  • 150ml vanilla or caramel yogurt
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  1 tbsp cocoa

(caramel & chocolate caramel sponges)

Happy New Year 2017!

I hope that the coming year is a fantastic, happy and healthy one for you all!

We were lucky, in one sense, that there was not a cloud in the sky for our walk, but that also meant that it was bitterly, bitterly cold! Lets just say it was a real test for the new wooly gloves and hat I was given for Christmas! Even with the winter woolies, my cold little ears still felt as though they might drop off by the end of the walk!

Chatsworth and the surrounding areas are truly stunning, with rolling fields, wide rivers, the best of British wildlife and beautiful architecture, it made for a fantastic start to 2017.

We made a pitstop at…
