Thank you for visiting my blog!

Over the last few years, I have been cooking for PureMalt staff, guests and events. I create every day food recipes for all to enjoy and often experiment with the addition of malt extracts in some of my dishes. East Lothian is a county full of great tasting and exciting local produce, which I will try to include in my food whenever possible.  It’s all about quality and flavour – hope you enjoy my recipes!

    Bonfire Night Cake.

    A quick and easy shop bought ingredients cake that the kids can help make.



    I sourced my cakes from Tesco, but its up to you where you get them from.


    • 1 x large chocolate traybake cake with Malteser chocolate balls and flaked chunks white and dark chocolate.
    • 1 x small round chocolate cake that will fit onto top of traybake.
    • 1 x packet chocolate finger biscuits.
    • 1 x box Matchmaker stick chocolates, I used orange flavour but up to you.
    • 1 x box Chocolate Flakes.
    • 1 x bag orange foil wrapped chocolate balls (the kind you get as Halloween specials)
    • 1 x bag wine gums or any other kind of sweets that have orange/yellow colours.


    Start by measuring small cake over traybake cake to make sure it will fit on top.

    Use a side plate that is larger than the small cake but small enough to fit on top of tray bake. I know this sounds weird but you will see how it works as you go.


    Carefully place side plate onto tray bake and cut around it.


    Remove cut circle of traybake and place onto your serving dish to assemble. You have to do this now as you wont be able to move it later. When you have it on your server, carefully position the small round cake in the middle, making sure you have an even edge all the way round.


    You don't have to remove any of the chocolate trimmings from the traybake but maybe reposition some of the Malteser Balls so the little cake has a relatively flat surface to sit on. When your happy with the way it looks you can start to assemble the chocolate biscuit fingers all around cake so they look like logs or branches leaning upright. As the icing on both the round cake and the traybake base is soft you can gently push the fingers in so that they are firmly attached.



    When you have used up all the biscuit fingers, start using the Matchmaker sticks to fill in the gaps. You can be quite random now, as its meant to resemble a messy bonfire, even placing a few Matchsticks in and around the base.


    Also use the chocolate flakes to prop up against sides and break up a few to scatter around base to look like leaves and clumps of earth/wood.

    In the centre, place the orange foil wrapped chocolate balls mixed through with some red/yellow/orange wine gums. This makes it look like fire/flames. When your happy with the way it looks, scatter a few Matchsticks over the top to finish off.

    Voila.... a Bonfire Cake any kid/adult/big kid would love to make and eat. A real centrepiece for your 5th November Bonfire Party. Great fun for everyone to pick at and demolish.


    Have fun and be safe this 5th November!
