Lyd Bakes: Fleur and Mike's Birthday Surprise Cake

So a while a go I saw this video by Fleur (of Fleur de Force) and her husband Mike cooking an awesome cake for the Sainsburys food channel. 

I have to say, this is one of the coolest looking birthday cakes I had ever seen and it is relatively simple to make, so I had to have a go. 

The original recipe cuts out the middle and fills it with sweets, but I omitted this part as, as far as I'm concerned, cake trumps Haribo. So the bake was even easier for me, hoorah! 

The recipe for this cake is here  - be warned, you may be finding stray hundred and thousands around your home for a few months after making this. 

Have you guys got any good baking suggestions?



  1. Wow this looks amazing!
    I recently made cupcakes with nutella butter cream - tasted amazing!

  2. This looks so good, you have done such a good job! I don't bake cakes enough, always doing cupcakes and cookies so I definitely need to try this! x
