So, some of you will have seen my floating Malteser cake I posted at the weekend. I’ve had so many messages and comments asking how I did it. And because I’m just that kind of generous, I thought I’d show you.

You’re going to need;

  • A baked and ganached/buttercreamed cake.
  • An iced cake drum.
  • Cadbury fingers. (I used two boxes)
  • Maltesers. (I used two big share bags and you will need an individual small bag for the top)
  • A small bar of chocolate for melting.
  • A straw.

Stick your crumb coated cake onto your iced board.

image

Starting at the back, stick Cadbury fingers to the outside of your cake.

image

Try not to eat them all when you are doing this…

image

Then, again starting at the back, stick on your Maltesers all the way around the edge, going into the middle.

And, again, try not to eat them all when doing this.

Melt some chocolate. You don’t need a lot. I’ve used a 100g bar.

image

Dip the top end of your straw into your melted chocolate.

image

Using the melted chocolate, stick your empty small Malteser bag onto the top end of the straw.

image

Stick the straw into the middle of your cake and cover it with melted chocolate to stick it in place.

image

Then, using melted chocolate as a glue, start to stick Maltesers around the base of the straw and all the way up to the bag. I even stuck a few just inside the bag to make it looks like it was being poured.

And there you have it! A floating Malteser cake!

give it a go and as always let me know how you get on either on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy baking (and decorating!)
