Chocolate Nostalgia Cake

Some say that margarine has no place on this earth. Whilst we would usually agree, there are times where it really does make a cake or dessert something rather special. Not special in a grand way, just special in the way it evokes old memories.

This is where Chocolate Nostalgia Cake comes in.

You know those chocolate cakes you had as a child? This is one of those. It’s all the birthday cakes topped with Smarties, the summer picnics trying to keep it safe from wasps, the glasses of squash alongside after a bike ride with friends. You will all have a relative who still makes cake like this.

It’s simple cake; no exciting ingredients, just a simple sponge mix using margarine in place of butter. Without the richness that the butter would usually add, it forces the other ingredients to shine – and they do just that. It’s a deliciously sweet chocolate cake that would be as at home at a 1 year olds birthday party as it would a 100 year olds. There’s something about it that just makes everyone smile.

What we like about this cake is that it provides a blank canvas for decoration. Be it sprinkles, glitter, sweets or buttercream roses, or a combination of all of the above. It can tailored to any occasion.

We’ve decorated ours with Smarties and a bright pink buttercream rose right at the centre. If you have a special occasion coming up, or just want a trip down memory lane, drop us a line and we’ll make it happen.
