  4. Take two silicon cake moulds 18cm and divide the mixture between them, even out with a spatula and place in the middle of the oven for 25-30mins and when pricked with a metal skewer it come out clean, remove from the moulds when cool enough and leave on a wire rack until completely cold.
  5. Now put a metal or glass bowl over a pan of water, bring to the boil and ensure the bowl doesn’t touch the water, break up your dark chocolate and melt stirring occasionally add the veg oil and stir, take off the heat and allow to cool slightly, now add the rice pops and MIGHTY M.lkology and quickly stir thoroughly, set aside, keeping the water melt the rest of the chocolate for the final decoration in the piping bag, keep the piping bag warm until needed.

  8. Now to build the cake, place the first sponge on the plate you intend on serving it on, if the top is slightly peaked then trim to flat, now pipe a thin circle of frosting around the edge of the sponge and roughly fill in the layer, now top with the chocolate rice pop mix and flatten slightly with a spatula now on top of that pipe another neat circle of frosting the same size as the second sponge and fill in to create another layer, now top with the final sponge and pipe blobs all around the edge of the cake do around X3 rows and now add the vegan vanilla buttercream, finally cut the end off of the melted chocolate filled piping bag and quickly drizzle the chocolate all over the cake, add candles and enjoy.
