Chocolate Crazy Birthday Cake

It was my moms birthday this week so we decided to make her an unique cake. We started off with mixing the ingredients for two sponge cakes.

250g/8oz butter or margarine, softened
250g/8oz caster sugar
4 medium eggs
250g/8oz self raising flour


300g icing sugar , sifted
100g unsalted butter
40g cocoa powder
40ml whole milk

Preheat I've to gas mark 4 .

Add the sugar and butter together, add eggs & flour. Mix together until its a thick non lumpy constancy . Spread evenly between two tins the same size. Smooth over.

Bake for about 15/20 mins, leave to cook on a wire baking rack.

While the cakes are cooling add the butter and cocoa powder, sift the icing sugar and add the milk a bit at a time. Make sure its pretty thick so it spreads on ok.

When cool place one of the cakes on a plate and add chocolate frosting in the middle. Place the other cake upside down and cover completely with the frosting.

Once covered break the kitkats in to twos and stick on to the side until they are all the way around. Add sweets to centre, for decortaion add ribbon around and candles.
