  • This chocolate fingers cake would make the perfect centerpiece for a birthday celebration and it’s so easy to make.

    This delicious chocolate finger cake will serve six to eight people and takes just 25 mins to cook and 30 mins to prepare. The chocolate fingers create a lovely nest for topping your cake with lots of chocolate treats.

    Similar to our pick ‘n mix sweetie cake, we’ve decorated this cake with a mixture of M&Ms, Smarties, and Malteasers but you’re making it for someone special you could top it with their favourites – fresh berries, white chocolate buttons, or even jellied sweets will work well. If you’d rather decorate your chocolate cake with whole chocolate bars you might like our chocolate drip cake.

    This cake is covered with a Nutella layer but you can substitute it for milk, dark or white melted chocolate or chocolate buttercream.
