Malteser Cake

This time last week Butter Hearts Sugar turned 3! While I've had a lot on my plate at the moment and my posting has been sporadic at best, I'm not one to miss a Birthday or a Birthday Cake!

What better way to celebrate than with this Malteser cake, which just happens to be the richest cake I think I've ever made. I noticed the cake on the front cover of Good Taste magazine and the picture was enough to have me leaving the shop with the magazine and a couple of bags of Maltesers.

The recipe described the cake as amazeballs and I whole-heartedly agree, as well as adopting the word amazeballs as one of my favourite words.

The shinning coat of Maltesers on the outside of the cake is enticing enough, but the malt buttercream filling is where its really at.
In fact if I made this cake again I'd probably skip the outer layer of ganache and fill and cover the cake with the buttercream. I'll leave you with just one one word of advice, have a cold glass of milk handy, this cake is decadent!

You can find the recipe here if you'd like to give it a shot.
