Lolly birthday cake


  • If you need to plan ahead with this cake you can bake the two layers of cake and freeze them wrapped in cling film until the day you need them. They will only take an hour or two to defrost.
  • The thick coating of icing should be enough to hold all these delicious chocolates on the outside but if you need to transport this cake or are decorating it for the next day you will need to tie a big ribbon around the centre of the cake to hold all of the chocolates on.
  • If you don't like these particular chocolates you can use a combination of just your favourites.
