I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas pudding so decided to create something more to my liking, but with more than a passing resemblance to that most classic of Christmas dishes.
This is what i came up with. A chocolate cake covered in chocolate buttercream and maltesers, then decorated with sugarpaste and silver luste dust.
I can tell you it went down brilliantly with friends and family…. and more importantly, me!
You can make ‘ball’ cakes using a ball tin. They are hugely versatile, making cakes from footballs to ladybirds possible.
