You’ve had a hard day and you fancy a treat. What could be better than a slice of chocolate cake? You’ve had a sad day and need a pick me up. What could be better than a slice of chocolate cake. You’ve had a happy day! Yay! What could be better than a slice of chocolate cake? (See where we’re going with this one?)
If you’re on a diet you might want to avoid this post, but if you’re up for a good time and a few calories, read on! Chocolate cake suits all manner of moods, it’s a genuine pick me up and quite frankly cake plus chocolate equals a happy belly and a mild sugary buzz.
Our team at Anges De Sucre loves a bit of chocolate, and if it’s your birthday or the birthday of someone you like quite a bit, we’ve picked our ten chocolatey favourites to tickle your taste buds.
1. Nutella Ferrero Rocher Cake
The top spot has got it all. Nutella Swiss buttercream, a chocolate brownie, an Oreo cookie and cream sponge you can sleep on (it really is that soft), all topped off with Ferrero Rocher ice cream cones. Yes, with this chocolate we really are spoiling you (that will go right over your head if you didn’t watch TV in the 90s!).
This is a nutty delight and definitely suits all ages (but not all allergies so please DO NOT order if you or the birthday girl/boy has a nut allergy!). Order online here.
2. Triple Decker Faux Fried Chicken 'N' Waffle Cake
Chicken and chocolate….sounds like a dodgy pregnancy craving right? Wrong! This decorative masterpiece (yes, we said masterpiece and we’re not sorry) is finger-lickin’ good. Designed to make your trouser buttons pop, not only is this cake a feast for the eyes, every bit of it has been made from guilt-ridden goodies. We’ve got brownie ‘meat’, white chocolate pretzel ‘bone’ and salted caramel ‘gravy’. So, put that greasy takeaway fried chicken down and grab a slice of this beaut instead! Order online here with free London delivery.
3. Doughnut Cookie Monster Cake
Homer Simpson is not the only one with a doughnut obsession. No siree. The Anges De Sucre team love to dive into our handmade baked buttermilk doughnuts because they’re awesome, delicious and they make this cake stand out from the crowd. Add a handful (or two or three) of Oreo cookie crumbs and you have yourself a chocolate monster. Order online here.
4. Choco Swirl Number Cake
Fondant is for freaks – yeah, we said it and we dare you to argue when you wrap your lips around this frosted, swirly, double-layered sponge cake. Each swirl is lovingly piped on any number between 1-9 to give you the ultimate chocolate fix. One number cake serves up to 25 people so you can share the love with your nearest and dearest, your next door neighbour and the postman on his morning rounds.
5. Choco Number Cookie Cake
We give you a two chocolate sponges shaped like a number and then we treble your happiness by painstakingly decorating it with every chocolate cookie you can think of. There are so many delicious additions to this number cake that we can’t go through all of them without needing a snack. Like its Choco Swirl sister cake (above), this number cruncher serves up to 25 people. Try not to pick all the biscuits off before it gets to the plate though! Order online here.
6. Ellie the Elephant Cake
While this is quite obviously a kids’ party cake, what little one can resist three-layers of chocolate sponge and dreamy buttercream? Add a few yummy bits of meringue and they’ll be hiding their take-home slice from their mums and dads. Ellie is super cute and the cake is a chocolatey creation everyone can get their teeth into. Order online here.
7. Monet-Antoinette Cake
Want a bit of culture with your chocolate fix? Well then, this art-inspired homage to Marie Antoinette is perfect. The watercolour buttercream is piled high with perfectly-formed macarons to complement the soft chocolate sponge. Order one tier or order four, you’re going to love this delicious Anges De Sucre favourite. Order online here.
8. Floral Flush Buttercream Cake
Not only is this cake a celebration of pastel colours and flowery swirls, it’s got a chocolate sponge to die for! It’s so pretty you might feel sad cutting into it, but once you’ve done the deed we challenge you not to love every opulent mouthful. Order online here.
9. Berry Peanut Buttercup Cake
Ok, so we’ve strayed a little bit from our chocolatey theme, but when you add peanut butter cups and raspberry pieces to our signature Belgian chocolate drip, you basically get magic. Every mouthful offers you a chocolate taste sensation plus a sweet hint of berries. Love, love this taste combo! Order online here.
10. Salted Caramel Nuddy Muddy MacDreamy Cake
It might be number 10 on our list, but it’s by no means our least favourite! This cake packs a punch in every sinful, delicious, salty-sweet mouthful – and we’ve even got the word ‘nuddy’ in its name. A great alternative to a plain chocolate sponge, this is cake-creativity at its best! Order online here.
