Rich n tasty Birthday cake
I had a sudden inspiration to attempt a 16 cake in figures.
I had never attempted before and tried to make it quick and easy for myself.

I hope you try it out and agree, cutting the numbers was a little fiddly.

  • Step 1

    Line you cake tins and turn your oven on to warm up.

  • Step 2

    Choose your favorite sponge cake recipe, mix and cook as your recipe says.
    I used our loved chocolate fudge cake recipe.

    Pour half the mixture into 1 tin and the other half in the 2nd tin. Bake.

  • Step 3

    Leave to cool for 5 mins in the tins then carefully turn out to cool on wire trays.

    Mix together your filling, I used our chocolate fudge filling.

  • Step 4

    Once cakes are cool, draw your numbers onto the baking paper.

    Place the paper on top of the cake, hold in place and using a small sharp knife carefully cut out both numbers from one sponge.

    Then repeat again with the 2nd sponge.

  • Step 5

    Place on set of numbers onto your cake board and carefully cover with some of your filling.

    Very carefully place the other set of numbers ontop. Press down lightly.

  • Step 6

    Now to decorate!

    I added more filling over the top and sprinkled over some dark chocolate chips.

    Be warned it is very rich!

i have used a round 7in cake tin and loaf tin to make a 6 for instance] you will need to cut out the middle of the 7in round and then add on the loaf with a little trimming. and bake another loaf for the 1. to get 16]
