Foodblogswap: Kit kat Smarties cake

My assignment for the foodblogswap of November was to bake a recipe from the blog of Marina's Bakery. This blog is completely designated to baking. With really nice recipes, all of them were in the category baking. But one took immedeately my attention.  Marina wrote a blog about her birthday cake. A real good looking cake photo accomponied the post. And at that precise time, my birthday party was in four days. That coincedance probably meant that I had to make just that cake. I showed the picture to my childeren and that made the final decision. This one was going to be made from Marina's blog: the Kit kat smarties cake. I used smarties instead of M & M due to the artificial colours used in M&M's, the rest of the recipe I followed as described. The childeren on my birthday party ate the cake and there was one conclusion: Not only nice to see, but also very delicious.
The recipe was written in the Allerhande:

Ingredients :

  • 180 grams chocolate, minimum 72 % cacoa
  • 100 ml milk;
  • 200 grams butter, roomtemperature;
  • 175 grams sugar;
  • 3 eggs, large;
  • 200 grams self-raising flour;
  • 400 grams chocolate mousse;
  • 1 1/2 sack kitkat mini's, 375 gram
  • 1 sack smarties
Materials :

  • Springform 18 cm diameter;
  • baking paper.


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cover the bottom of the baking form with baking paper and brush the sides of the baking dish with butter. In a bowl poor the milk and butter and heat them au-bain-marie until the chocolate melted. Let the chocolate mixture cool down a bit. Beat the butter and sugar until it's light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, until they are fully incorporated. Whisk the chocolate mixture into the batter. With a spatula gently mix the self-raising flour into the batter. Poor the batter in the baking dish and bake for 45-55 minutes in the oven, until the cake is ready.
Let the cake cool down to room temperature. Remove the springform. Cut the cake horizontal, so you will get two layers. Smear one side with half of the chocolate mousse. Lay the other layer onto the chocolate mousse. Smear the top and side with the rest of the chocolate mousse. Place the kit-kats vertically around the cake. Sprinkle the smarties on the cake.

Tips and tricks:

  • A real nice touch to this cake is to take a ribbon and place it around the cake and finish it with a bow;
  • If you don't have a spring form but a baking dish of 18 cm diameter, make sure to cover the bottom and sides of the baking dish with baking paper. The cake will  be easier to get out after cooling down.
