This is our hugely popular chocolate biscuit cake, or Purbeck Marble Cake as we call it due to all the marvellous stone along our stretch of Dorset coastline, which we have turned into a birthday cake, due to customer requests! Chococo co-founder Claire adapted an old family favourite tiffin recipe to create this Purbeck Marble Cake many years ago now & it has become a key part of the Chococo range. It also won a Gold Great Taste Award back in 2007.
This makes a delicious alternative to a classic sponge cake as it is filled with crunchy biscuits & dried morello cherries & raisins to give both crunch & sweetness to complement the 67% Madagascan origin dark chocolate. We cover each cake in our house 43% milk chocolate (which is also great when giving to kids as they don't notice that actually, it is dark chocolate inside!). Each cake is decorated with mini assorted chocolate cereal balls. This cake is also egg-free.
Each cake is presented on a rigid cake board & is wrapped in cello, tied with ribbon. And finally, this Purbeck Marble Cake will last up to 8 weeks....as if!
Top tip: if you want to insert candles into this cake without cracking the chocolate, warm a skewer or very thin knife and insert into the chocolate to melt a small hole to then insert the candle holder!
Each cake measures 17cm square by c3.5cm tall. Weight: 750g
