Chocolate Cookie Crumble Cake with Marshmallow Icing

May 31, 2012

Mr B is leaving his job and off to pastures new (well, it’s actually embankment…not quite a pasture but hey) so his office requested that I bake them a leaving cake. Mr B’s only specification was that it had two have the two faces of him and Pritesh, who was leaving on the same day, on it. I wasn’t convinced that my decorating skills were up to it, especially when it was a rushed after-work-bake. Add to this the fact that it was a very hot evening which meant that the icing kept sliding everywhere and you end up with a slightly less than beautiful cake.  What this cake lacks in look though, it makes up for in taste. I used a recipe by the ever-reliable Ruth Clemens  – her Ultimate Chocolate Cake with Galaxy Cookie Crumble chocolate bar chunks mixed into it.  The icing is vanilla buttercream with a jar of marshmallow fluff beaten in and some more of the Cookie Crumble chocolate. It’s very oreo-like in flavour and has a lovely fluffy texture.
