Equipment

  • Electric Mixer
  • Large Serving Plate

Ingredients

  • 400 grams Chocolate Ripple Biscuits you will need two packs
  • 900 mls Thickened Cream
  • ¼ cup icing sugar 40 grams
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Decorations

  • 50 grams M&M's
  • 50 grams Flake Chocolate
  • 80 grams Maltesers
  • 50 grams Mint Chocolate Balls
  • 75 grams Rasperry Lollies

Instructions

  • Pour the thickened cream into a large bowl, add the icing sugar and vanilla extract and use an electric hand mixer to whisk the cream until soft peaks form.
  • Smear a little of the whipped cream onto the base of a large serving plate to make a circle - this will be your guide for arranging your wreath.
  • Place a little cream between two chocolate ripple biscuits and stand them on your plate in the cream.
  • Repeat until you have completed your wreath.
  • Use a spatula to spread a thick layer of cream all over your Chocolate Ripple Cake - you want to make sure it’s covered well and you can’t see any of the biscuits.
  • Carefully cover the cake (I use toothpicks to hold up the cling wrap) and place it into the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours to allow the cream and caramel to soften the biscuits.
  • When you are ready to serve, decorate with your favourite lollies and chocolates

Notes

  • You will need thickened cream for this recipe - light versions will not work as they cannot be whipped. You will need 2 x 600ml bottles of cream to make a cake as pictured.
  • You will also need two packs of Chocolate Ripple Biscuits for this recipe.
  • The size and shape of this recipe can be varied.
  • To cover, I suggest placing toothpicks around the cake and covering with cling wrap so that it is not touching the cream.
  • I also suggest decorating the cake just prior to serving as some of the decorations (M&M's in particular) can run or discolour whilst stored in the fridge.
  • This recipe is best made the day before it is needed.
