      Every now and again I like to step outside the lines of my ethos of using strictly natural ingredients and delve into a bit of colourful sprinkle use. This recipe is so adaptable and you can make it suitable for all ages – to make it a bit less rich for a child's birthday cake for instance, leave out the dark chocolate element and use more white or milk chocolate. Or to make it more sophisticated for an adult dinner party, top the cake with fresh fruit and roughly chopped chocolate rather than Maltesers (although, who can deny a Malteser?) Either way, I urge you to get creative with your decorations – there are no rules when it comes to a cake like this!
