Amazing chocolate cake

Hi everyone! This is my recipe to make an amazing buttercream chocolate cake, covered with melted chocolate and decorated with sweets!


  •  170g butter
  •  170g sugar
  •  3 eggs
  •  140g self-raising flour
  •  30g cocoa powder
  •  1½ tsp baking powder

For the butter icing:

  • 90g butter
  • 170g icing sugar
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder

For the topping:

  •  200g milk chocolate
  • Buttons, Maltesers or Skittles

(You will need 2 loose-bottomed cake tins)


Preheat the oven to 180°C

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Add the eggs, sifted flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and combine

Divide the batter between the two lined tins and spread with a spatula

Bake for 18-20 minutes

Allow the cakes to cool a little in the tin and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely

For the butter icing, mix all the ingredients together until smooth

Once the cake is cool, spread the icing over one cake and sandwich with the other

For the topping, melt the chocolate and pour it gently over the cake

Have fun decorating with your favourite sweets!

This cake actually tasted soo delicious and you can adapt this recipe in any way you like! Hope you enjoyed😄
