After-eight cake

I have had the grasshopper cake from the pink whisk saved on my favourites for a while now. Tonight was the night I made my version of it!

I made a vanilla sponge instead of chocolate and I used chocolate butter icing instead of ganache (I don't like things too sweet!) 

I was really pleased with how it looked, personally I would prefer it with out the after-eights in the middle, but Manny really liked them!

I think there may be a few more cakes being made soon ......


  1. Your cake looks really delicious and very chocolatey. If only you email a slice to your followers. I guess we'll have to make our own.
    Thanks for sharing.
