What a mouthful – literately. I’ve been enjoying the spoils of our own bake off at work since the recent series of the Great British Bake Off began, and this week was my turn. I’ve tasted some amazing bakes in the run up, and the competition was looking tough. I spent weeks deliberating over what sort of cake I would like to make, and since we’d had so many chocolate cakes I decided to try something a little different. Introducing the monster that is the Vanilla, Caramel, Hazelnut and White Chocolate Ombre Layer Cake!

I adapted a recipe from Lakeland, but had to change the amounts as I was using a rather large 20cm cake tins!
