Kids in the Kitchen – Chocolate Overload Cake

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. I hope you all had a happy Easter. We had a lovely time. We made our own chocolate treats and Hot Cross Buns as well as a Simnel Cake. We had an egg hunt on Sunday morning and after the Littlies had found all the little eggs the Easter bunny had hidden they were given one last clue to the hoard of eggs hiding in the kitchen.

We love it when you share you recipes with us or even just tell us about what you have been up to in the kitchen with your kids. All post that join the linky will be shared on my Pinterest Board and on Twitter and I will give you a mention here on Kids in the Kitchen.

Last week Tickle Fingers shared some fantastic 3D Dinosaur biscuits with us, they really are amazing, do go and look.

Chocolate Overload Cake

This week I’m cheating a little as I made a chocolate cake, (just a basic chocolate sponge cake recipe) but I had Boo help to decorate it.
First we filled and covered the cake in chocolate butter cream.
Then Boo very carefully stuck on chocolate fingers all around the outside. We used two packets but we still had gaps so maybe we should have used three? It was an 8 inch round cake. The on the top we used a large packet of Maltesers, again we didn’t quite have enough to completely fill the top. It still made a pretty impressive chocolate cake though, Boo was pleased anyway.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
