How to // Lucy's Kit Kat Cake

I thought I'd go for something different today, over the weekend I ended up creating this monster & so many of you thought it was good I'm going to share how me & Tom made it. It was Dan's birthday & I'm the one in the family who always makes the birthday cakes, shop bought cakes just aren't as exciting. I decided on upping the game with an attempt at making the famous 'Kit Kat Cake', of course Tom being Tom was eager to help out, we're such foodie friends.

Once you've made your mixture, divide into four cake tins, we used silicone cases because they're the best thing since sliced bread & cooked in two batches. Each sponge took 12-15 minutes in a fan oven set to 160 degrees. Then let them cool, you can make your butter cream while you wait. We didn't measure, just made it to taste.
Cool enough to start building your monster of a cake? Stick the bottom sponge to the cake board with a little jam, then apply jam to the sponge itself, followed by a generous amount of butter cream. Add your next sponge, you then have your first tier to ice with the chocolate frosting.
Apply a thin layer of frosting all over the cake, you'll be sticking Kit Kat's to the sides, so don't worry if it isn't neat. If you have an assistant get them to cut your other two sponges into squares, you need them small enough so you can have topping all around on the bottom tier. Tom took this too far & wanted to measure precisely, so I gave him the biggest ruler created. Once cut, build your second tier on top of the first tier. Apply jam, butter cream and ice as before.

The fun bit, you're almost done, yay. Break Kit Kat's into two fingers and place all the way around both tiers. To fill in any gaps use single fingers. Leave a gap at the front of the top tier, you'll then fill the bottom tier with your topping and fill the gap in. Tie a ribbon around to keep all the Kit Kat's in place. Ours wasn't perfect but for a first attempt it turned out great.
Have you made a Kit Kat Cake before? Or will you be giving this a try? If you do you can print out my little shopping list.
