This recipe is one from Nigela Lawsons website (minus the decoration) that we decided we could make a great Halloween cake with. Nigella carries a monthly cookalong which gives us a recipe to follow and post a picture of.
I couldn’t resist trying it out for ourselves as it just looked so rich. The kids wanted involved so they did the weighing, measuring and preparing and I did the oven bit. We used shop bought ready icing for the decoration, but I’m sure it would be easy enough to make.
The boys wanted a fab cake for Halloween night so it is now tucked up in a Tupperware tub to be brought out for THE night. A real spooky home-made Halloween cake.
