Any holiday for me means baking and making! I love to make/bake sweet treats for my loved ones… It’s almost like my love language.
For easter, my go-to treat to make is an easter choc-ripple cake. It’s a very simple, no bake cake that tends to always impress a crowd – though it can take a little time to assemble. (Last year I sent this cake out to Trent’s work for dessert for his crews monthly bbq and it was a huge hit, all the men really loved it.)
Now normally I would link to the recipe, but I’ve since discovered the site has shut down, so I give credit to Zamamabakes for this recipe, but here is my version of the choc-ripple easter cake…
- choc ripple biscuits
- caramel sauce (I used salted caramel)
- ice magic topping
- your choice of easter treats to decorate cake
- Decide on the size of cake, I made 2 different sized cakes. 1 larger one for a big party and 1 smaller one for us. (I used 2 600ml bottles of cream for this and I think about 4 packets of biscuits)
- Crush maltesers (I pop mine in a ziplock bag and smack them with a rolling pin, throwing them in a food processor or thermomix would work to.)
- Whip cream until thick. (I add caster sugar and a dash of vanilla to my cream, this is optional)
- Start assembling the cake, smooth on a layer of caramel, cream and then lightly dip in crushed maltesers.
- Stack biscuits standing on their sides. (If your first few biscuits are a little unstable, smooth some cream on the plate first and use it like glue)
- Continue topping biscuits with caramel, cream and maltesers and stacking on their sides until you have the size of your desired cake.
- Cover entire cake with cream.
- Decorate with your choice of topping.
This cake is so wonderful & versatile, you can change up the filling and decorate with whatever toppings you like so really, this cake isn’t just good for easter but for any occasion or holiday!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe, I would love to know what toppings you would use on this cake!
