About this Bake

A three-layered vanilla drip cake covered in berries and chocolate shards. Lots of fun to make, but you need a lot of people to eat it.

Top tip

When creating swirls in the shards, use gel food colouring. Allow candy melts to reach a smooth consistency before dropping down the sides. Either make the decorations the day before or give yourself plenty of time to make everything in one day (6 hours).
