Ingredients (serves 10)
370g packet moist chocolate cake mix
1 tablespoon spread
125g unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups icing sugar mixture, sifted
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon milk
2 x 50g packets Rolo chocolate
1 x 25g Curly Wurly chocolate bar
gold coins, lolly necklaces, Smarties, jubes and licorice allsorts, to decorate
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 9cm x 19cm loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang. Make cake according to packet directions. Spoon mixture into prepared pan.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (cover cake with foil if over-browning). Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in icing sugar and cocoa. Add milk. Beat to combine. Cut rounded top from cake to form a lid. Spread half the icing over top and sides of cake bottom. Spread remaining icing over cake lid.
Place cake bottom on a board or plate. Position Rolos around base. Cut Curly Wurly diagonally into two 6cm lengths. Arrange lollies on cake bottom. Place Curly Wurly pieces upright on cake sides to support lid. Place cake top over Curly Wurly pieces. Serve.
Nutritional information does not include lollies.
