Easy Chocolate Birthday Cake (lollies, chocolates & more!)

An easy chocolate birthday cake decorated with chocolate biscuits, lollies, marshmallows and chocolates! This really is a chocoholics delight!

A few months ago it was my eldest nephew’s 7th birthday. He was born on New Years Eve and he is seriously the best little kid.

Anyway, I had seen lots of similar versions of this easy chocolate birthday cake on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make. Jack, my nephew, was keen too… until he decided that he would rather a cricket cake… then a soccer cake… then a half cricket/half soccer cake. Such a typical 7 year old! He finally decided on this cake .

We actually used a bought chocolate mud cake and decorated it. Easiest. Cake. Ever. It seriously took about 20 minutes to decorate – from start to finish. How brilliant is that!?

Jack chose his favourite lollies and chocolates for the top, so we ended up using:

- strawberries and cream lollies

- a mini meringue for the centre

Oh and the birthday boy was going to help me decorate his cake… until a game of backyard cricket came calling. Again – typical 7 year old!

Ok, so here’s my tips for decorating this easy chocolate birthday cake.

- don’t be scared to use a store-bought cake – you’ll find that they’ll be perfectly round and completely flat on top which is what you want

- even if the cake you’ve bought has icing on it, buy an extra tub of frosting – you’ll need to frost the top and sides of the cake to get everything to stay in place

- use any kind of chocolate or lollies you like to decorate – the smaller the better as they’re easier to fit in the little gaps

- we used chocolate finger biscuits as the sides and dividers – you could also use musk sticks, Kit Kats or even licorice sticks

- this works best with a relatively big cake as you can fit lots of different lollies and chocolates on top

- go for bright coloured toppings – they look great!

- grab a ribbon and tie it into a bow – it looks like you’ve made an extra big effort… when really it only took you 10 seconds!

I really loved decorating this cake and will 100% be making it again in the future. And if I’m totally honest, I particularly liked decorating it whilst doing the whole ‘one for the cake, one for me’ thing. I’m pretty sure I ate half a bag of crispy M&Ms as I went!
