A slight variation on the Chocolate Finger & Malteaser cake, or the Kitkat and Smarties cake, here is a ‘sweetie’ cake I made for my son’s 7th Birthday Party last weekend.
It’s a Chocolate Fudge Cake (recipe here), filled with white chocolate buttercream, smothered with chocolate ganache and surrounded by chocolate fingers, and topped with chocolate fingers, malteasers, mini marshmallows and smarties.
You might notice a row of smarties around the bottom – that wasn’t part of the original plan! After I had filled the cake, it was slightly taller than the fingers, so I needed to raise them a bit! I think it worked out well!

My littlest boy turned 2 recently. He’s Toy Story mad at the moment so I bought some little figurines in the Disney Store to put on top of his cake.
It’s an expensive cake to make! But it’s simple to do and a huge crowd-pleaser. Plus the 2-year-old just loved it and that’s the main thing.
The cake itself is three layers of a chocolate orange sponge, filled and covered with chocolate ganache and decorated with Kitkats and smarties. I used 24 2-finger Kitkats and 4 regular-sized tubes and 8 mini boxes of smarties.
I had no cake board (bad planning!) so I cut out a 12 inch scalloped circle from card using my Cricut machine and glued some sugarpaste letters to it. I cut the letters out with Windsor Groovy Clikstix cutters. (A tip someone gave me recently was to take the back ruler off the clikstix….it makes things so much easier!) I finished it off with a red ribbon and bow.
Nick’s card was a bit last minute. I cut out all the shapes using my Cricut machine and Cricut Craft Room.

I made this cake for a kids birthday party recently using my favourite Chocolate Biscuit Cake recipe. I usually top this with malteasers, but I wanted to add some colour so I used Smarties instead. The cake wasn’t very deep so I cut the chocolate fingers in half before sticking them on.
This recipe is a little too rich for kids, so I made them all their own mini-cake instead. Very simple, just digestive or rich tea biscuits, spread with a little melted chocolate and topped with mini smarties. These went down a treat!
