Frozen Mars Bar Mousse…

 

Image-1

With my brother’s 30th coming up I wanted to spoil his sweet tooth and was prepared to take days off work to get a cake together. I spent months (not an exaggeration) researching different cakes, I had looked into purchasing soccer ball cake tins which would be shipped from the UK, I contacted the local cake supply store for special food colourings and decorations, and I asked for my colleagues input and I narrowed the list down to 10 very indulgent cakes.

His response was “the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make” and he had decided on the Frozen Mars Bar Mousse cake. The boy (man) loves his ice-cream, I should have known he would have picked the giant Mars Bar Ice-Cream cake.

Looking at the recipe, it’s quite simple. Maybe a little too simple. I always feel like I’m bound to fail when it comes to basic cooking – like roasts, I will literally stand in front of the oven watching it cook, and it is always undercooked.

So…I had to work out the time frame where I knew a group of us could come together & enjoy without the cake melting!

This is a really simple (yet indulgent) dessert which children can help to make, I think it
