Have yourself a Malteser-tastic birthday

My husband's birthday was last month, and an obvious essential for a birthday is a cake. At my son's request, I baked a basic chocolate cake, with cholcoate icing. To make it extra decadent, I decided I would cover the cake in Maltesers (the best chocolate-based sweet!).

I picked up two sharing bags of Maltesers (or Matly-teasers, as my son calls them), thinking that would be plenty to coat the surface of the cake. My son and I spend a fair while carefully placing the individual Maltesers on the cake, with me doing the sides and him the top. As you can see from the picture, it turns out two bags is not enough! Not that it matters, it still tasted good, and the question 'How many Maltesers does it take to cover a cake?' can be answered another time.


  1. This looks so good! I usually cover my coffee cake with maltesers, it's been a while though so can't remember how many bags it takes!

    1. I think it's probably four. There might be a few left, but spare Maltesrers are never going to go to waste!
