Our Chocolate Biscuit Cake as a Happy Birthday cake was featured this week in Expert Reviews online of the best Birthday cakes and we agree, it is a birthday cake with a difference!

They clearly gave it a good test as this is what they had to say about it as being the best egg-free cake:

"If you’re just as partial to biscuits as cakes, then you’ll love this award-winning, hand-piped and reassuringly heavy chocolate biscuit cake. The chocolate, as you’d expect from this top-drawer chocolatier, is out of this world – 67 percent dark chocolate for the filling (along with rich tea biscuits and dried raisins and cherries) and covered in 45 percent Venezuelan milk chocolate.

We easily got a dozen slices out of it. Like rocky road without the (often over-sweet) marshmallow, it also lasts a lot longer than many cakes – a whopping eight weeks. It’s egg-free, although not gluten-free and arrives in the post very well-packaged to avoid breakage."

We have been making our chocolate biscuit cakes (or Purbeck Marble Cake as we also call them in honour of the wonderful marble that comes from our part of Dorset's Jurassic Coast) for many years now & they are co-founder Claire's version of an old family tiffin recipe that she jazzed up and voila, the Purbeck Marble Cake was born.
Each one is made by hand & then covered with our Venezuelan house milk chocolate before being decorated with naturally coloured chocolate buttons & finally hand-piped in white chocolate with the words "Happy Birthday".

Each will feed 10-12 people quite happily (possibly more if you cut the sizes a little smaller ) & being a biscuit cake, it will keep in an airtight tin for up to 8 weeks...as if!

We send each one out on a rigid cake board wrapped in compostable cornstarch cello ready for you to present.


Lastly, a quick top tip if you want to insert candles into the top, is to create holes for the candles with a skewer or hot knife to avoid breaking up the thick chocolate layer!
