Its my husbands Birthday today so i have made him a Tim Tam cake. I saw a picture of one on pinterest so i thought id give it a go.
I used a chocolate fudge cake recipe
250g dark chocolate
2/3cup SR Flour
Preheat oven 180 c. butter and line a rectangle baking tray.
Stir chocolate & butter over a pot of simmering water till melted, let cool.
Combine chocolate mix with the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl, beat on low with an electric mixer.
Pour into pan, bake 30 mins. stand 5 mins then turn out onto wire rack to cool.
When cold cut in half and trim up sides making sure they are the same size.
100g butter softened
150g chocolate [melted and cooled]
3cups icing sugar
Beat butter until light and fluffy add sugar and mix until smooth. Add chocolate and enough milk to make a smooth spreadable consistency.
Spread over one cake then place the second cake on top.
100ml pouring cream [i use long life cream]
Melt chocolate over a pot of low simmering water then add the cream, use a whisk to mix and let thicken slightly. Place on bench to cool for 10 mins then in the fridge for 15 mins siring every 5 mins. You want it to be thick and spreadable but not hard.
Spread over cake and put in fridge to set.
I used a glass to cut out the bite piece.
