Step 1 of 4

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Put the cake ingredients in a bowl and beat (use an electric hand mixer if you have one!) until light and creamy.

Spoon the mixture into the tin and spread out. Bake for about 30-35 (40-45) minutes until springy and cooked in the centre. Cool slightly then lift out onto a cake rack.

When cool, make the chocolate glaze. Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl with the evaporated milk. Melt gently in the microwave then stir in the buttery baking spread. Set aside at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to thicken up before spreading over the cake. Top with the chocolate, candles and decorations!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from appalling lack of the actual cake ingredients I need to make a chocolate party cake but the ingredients mentioned fail to indicate just what are meant to be in the cake and only then what are the topping ingredients. For anyone not familiar with cake making, this recipe needs further attention.
