METHOD


Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Butter 2 x 20.5cm (8”) sandwich tins and line the base with some baking paper

Place all of the cake ingredients in a food mixer, or a bowl if using a hand mixer, and mix on low for 2–3 minutes before turning to high and beating for 1 minute. You will have a light and fluffy cake batter

Divide the cake batter between the prepared tins and smooth the tops with a spoon. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until the cakes are well risen and a toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle of the cakes comes out clean

Leave the cakes to cool for 2 minutes in the tin before carefully turning them out onto a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before decorating them

Place 1 cake half on a serving platter and spread half of the chocolate cream cheese over the cake; place the second cake on top and spread the remaining chocolate cream cheese over the top as frosting

Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the top and then arrange the Creme Egg halves around the cake in a circle before scattering the chocolate buttons over the top
