Kinder & Milkybar cake (Sisters Birthday cake!)

I have been trying to decide for months what kind of cake to make for my sister for her birthday this year. Last year it was a salted caramel cake and I really wanted to top it this year. I did a lot of research and finally decided on a Kinder/Milky Bar Cake! If you’d like to know how I made this (and what she thought of it) keep reading!

This could possibly be one of the most complicated cakes I’ve made so I’ll break down each bit! I did actually make this cake in a three-day period. Working 9-5 I didn’t have enough time to do it all at once. I did each cake layer flavour one day and then decorated and iced the cake another day!

  • Bit by bit add the dry ingredients to the wet
  • Fold in the last bit of flour mixture by hand until combined

  • Once cooled I wrapped in cling film ready for the next day

Verdict

A new little heading for my recipe blog posts but as this was a surprise cake for my sister’s birthday I thought I’d include what she thought of it!

She was absolutely blown away! I’m so happy with the reaction she gave. She was super surprised and loved it so much!
