Easy Chocolate Birthday Cake – your very own showstopper
So I got to thinking, maybe we should have an Easy Peasy Chocolate Birthday Cake Recipe on Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.
In fact I think we need one don’t you think?
It’s a celebration that for most people always involves a cake?
I blardy love a piece of birthday cake, especially when it’s homemade. Nothing nicer
So you need look no further here’s the perfect idea for a Chocolate Birthday Cake!!! Super easy
I wasn’t entirely sure why we give ‘cake’ at Birthday celebrations, however having had a look it would appear
‘In the 15th century, bakeries in Germany began to market one-layer cakes for customers’ birthdays as opposed to only marketing cakes for weddings, and thus the modern birthday cake was born. Wiki
I wanted only one Birthday Cake Recipe for the blog.
After all the whole point of my blog is no fuss, easy cooking and baking! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!
And let’s not forget homemade cake is such a treat! SIMPLE is the key!
Basic Cake Recipe
So I have a base recipe here for an Easy Chocolate Birthday Cake that you can alter in the decoration depending on who it’s for, child or adult, male or female.
And indeed you can customise and add what they recipient likes and what sweets are their favourites.
I decided that most people like Chocolate – especially at Birthday times? Also please remember it can easily be modified for Easter and Christmas! The opportunities are endless!
Oh and what about Halloween? Stop me now…. Oh and Maybe heart shaped for Valentines Day?
Ideas for your Birthday Cake
It would also work perfectly as a vanilla cake using White Chocolate Kitkats? Ooooo 🙂 Now there’s a great idea!
So here is a Chocolate extravaganza Birthday Cake that I hope will be a bit of a show stopper!
Have fun – go wild – it’s so easy and takes little skill – it also goes down a storm! Chocolate Birthday Cake with Sweets – there’s no failing here.
There are so many things you can use to decorate, I used:
- Kitkats (lots)
- M and M’s
- Kinder Eggs
- Curly Wurly
- Chocolate lollipop
- I think it would also be great with jelly sweets and lollipops and maybe a few strawberries because making it personal to the receiver is the key?
- Maybe chocolate fingers, matchmakers, Flakes, Mini Eggs, oh anything, would be nice!

You lovely peeps have started to ask me about kitchen kit. Well you need to know I use the below stand mixer!
It’s quite an investment HOWEVER I love it and I know I will have it for life. I see it as my essential piece of kit.
I also have lots of the attachments which I can talk about soon in another post Especially the pasta attachment !
Personally I believe this is the best stand mixer on the planet – but that’s just my view!
