Its national baking week so I needed no further encouragement to bake a delicious cake, however my sandwich cake tins were looking a little sad so as a special treat I replaced them with two 20 cm non stick loose bottom tins from Homesense. They are perfect for lifting the cake out and also really good quality as they do not distort or buckle in the oven. There is wonderful range of bake ware available at Homesense and it was really hard not to over indulge and buy the whole shop.
The cake is finally garnished with chocolate coated peanuts (M&M) and white chocolate shavings, crushed chocolate peanuts and flaked pistachio nuts. It is a cake that is simply delectable and one slice is most certainly not enough!!!!!
