Giant Ferrero Rocher cake
It doesn’t get any more indulgent than a cake recipe based on the ultimate luxury chocolates – and if they’re good enough for the ambassador, then they’re good enough for us! This recipe by Sugarhero is the chocolate and nutella lovers’ dream – it includes three layers of chocolate cake and three layers of hazelnut-speckled chocolate mousse, encased in a solid chocolate shell.
This cake is perfect for a special birthday celebration for your other half – or for them to bake for you! Who wouldn’t be impressed if someone made this for them?!

We absolutely love this fun and colourful rainbow cake – and thanks to this easy step-by-step recipe by Kerry Cooks, it’s simple enough for anyone to have a go at making! It’s the perfect birthday cake recipe for a kids’ party – or big kids out there for that matter. Everyone loves rainbow cake, and there’s nothing more exciting than when you cut into it for the first time and see all of those magical coloured layers of cake.
Skittles Inside Surprise Cake
by The Pink Whisk
If you’re looking for acake with an element of surprise, then The Pink Whisk’s Inside Surprise Cake recipe is perfect. Whoever you’re baking the cake for (or it could be yourself!), then choose whatever their favourite sweets are – and fill the centre with them! Then simply decorate the outside to make it look like the outside of the sweet.
Or, if you struggle a bit with the decorating aspect, then why not just make the simple Victoria Sponge version, as seen on the recipe. It makes a beautiful summer centerpiece at any occasion.
