It was Dean’s birthday and I wanted to surprise him by making some cakes. It’s not very often I can surprise him as he works from home so I took full of the advantage of the fact that he was away for the weekend. He loves sticky toffee pudding and when we go out he nearly always has it for dessert.
I thought this was a great way to put all the flavours of sticky toffee pudding into the icing. I went for a plain sponge in the end as I didn’t want to make the cake too rich to eat, and this worked really well with the icing. Dean arrived back from his weekend away and absolutely loved his birthday surprise!
