Ingredients

You’ll need:

For the cake

1 carton Arctic Iced Coffee Latte

1tbsp instant coffee granules

200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

200g salted butter, chopped

170g self-raising flour

400g light muscovado sugar

3 eggs

 

For the fudge icing

50ml double cream

200g dark chocolate, chopped

500g Icing sugar

 

A selection of Florentines, biscuits and spring themed decorations

What to do:

Step 1

Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan.

Step 2

Grease and line two 20cm Victoria sponge tins.

Step 3

Heat 200ml of the Arctic Iced Coffee in a pan until just steaming and stir in the coffee granules. Retain the rest of the Arctic Iced Coffee for the icing.

Step 4

In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese, mascarpone and icing sugar, then beat in the Arctic Iced coffee mixture until smooth and well combined.

Step 5

In a separate bowl mix together the flour and sugar, making sure there are no lumps. In another bowl beat the eggs.

Step 6

Pour the chocolate and the eggs into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until everything is combined.

Step 7

Divide the batter between the two tins and bake for 35-40 mins until the cakes are risen and cooked through.

Step 8

Allow the cakes to cool a little in the tins, then turn out onto a wire rack to go cold.

Step 9

To make the fudge icing, heat the remaining Arctic Iced Coffee with the cream until just steaming.

Step 10

Put the chopped chocolate into a bowl and pour the steaming cream mixture over. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the icing sugar to the bowl and whisk until thickened.

Step 11

Upturn one cake onto a serving plate and spread with some icing. Place the other cake on top and spread with the remaining icing, spreading evenly down the sides. If the icing is difficult to spread, warm a pallet knife in hot water and use that to spread gently.

Step 12

Decorate the top of the cake selection of Florentines, biscuits and spring themed decorations.
