Happy New Year to you all! 2020 has arrived and a new decade has begun.
This cake is inspired by one of my favourite places to go. On New Year’s Day we headed off to IKEA to look at a sofa bed and well to have a general look around. Of course we did get have some meatballs while we were there. I recommend the meatballs from there.
Every where you go in IKEA are these bags of little daim bars and I thought well why not start the New Year off with a big cake.
Big cakes stress me out big time because I’m used to do them about I never think they look good but I’m determined this year to change that. This cake did stress me out but I’m happy with the end result. I’m also a believer that as long as it tastes good then the way it looks isn’t the top priority.
This three layer cake has crushed Daim bars in the middle with a chocolate buttercream sitting on a beautiful chocolate sponge. There are mini Daim bars stuck around the outside and more crushed up Daim bars on the top of the cake.
I know that everyone is trying to eat better after Christmas but cake is good no matter what. I have spare Daim Bars left so I will be doing a recipe with them soon well as long as there are some left.
