The Simplest Occasion Cake Ever

To those who have requested the recipe, well there isn't one, it's that simple!

2 Mud Cakes (make if you must!)
Chocolate to melt (or those kids chocolate bars if you prefer even easier)
Decorations for the top
A length of ribbon (enough to go around cake and make a bow)


Trim top of one cake, place this on the bottom and use frosting to hold them together, 
Measure around cake and mark on a piece of baking paper
Coat the outside with chocolate frosting (never have too much chocolate)
Melt chocolate over a double boiler and spread on measured baking paper between 2  sticks (I use Chopsticks)
Cut while still soft into strips to go around cake, tempering is an option for special occasions
Set in fridge
 Put chocolate strips around the cake and attach ribbon or decorations of your choosing
Decorate the top however you want but more chocolate is always welcome, so are cherries soaked in alcohol 

VOILE, easy peasy!
Chocolate balls, my fave

Stacked square cakes

Mixed Berry

And I am very pleased to show off Linda's cake!

Linda's Variety

"it is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, flaked almonds and chocolate covered nuts. the Cadbury chocolate bars are stuck on with the frosting. easy"

Another variation!
Poco's around the outside and malteezers int the middle. Too easy and

Calorie free, Honour, Chocolate doesn't have calories just lots of happy juice in it!

As soon as you take a knife to a cake the calories run for their life - not a problem to you Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you Linda for another variety to our easy peasy cake. Still with enough chocolate to have the mandatory happy juice in it!
