You could make this cake with any chocolate cake and buttercream icing recipe, or even a packet mix! The decorating is what turns a simple chocolate cake into an indulgent one!
This is what I call a ‘Chocolate Indulgence Cake’ that I made for the June birthdays in my family.
Chocolate Indulgence Cake
I made 2 x batches of the Too Easy Chocolate Cake and 2 x batches of buttercream icing (halved the amount of milk required and added a tbsp. of cocoa instead of vanilla essence), both from the Basic Cookbook TM5 chip.
I piped the buttercream on with a star shaped icing nozzle. In between the cakes is buttercream and crushed Tim Tams (I chopped them up with a knife as the Thermomix would obliterate them into sand). I iced the top with buttercream then decorated in a messy, ab hoc, but intentional way with broken up ane crushed Tim Tams, Kit Kats, Pokey Chocolate Sticks, strawberries and confetti sprinkles.
I would have usually liked to have a greater height in the decorations on the cake however I needed to travel with it within a glass dome and it juuust fit! On a side note, the wooden platter and glass dome is actually a cheese tray I bought from Aldi on sale at $6! Bargain!
Hope this cake inspires you to make your own as it is so easy, delicious, and made with all the naughty junk food at home!
