To celebrate National Baking Week, I’m sharing a few delicious recipes made with Cadbury’s Double Decker chocolate bars. With Halloween around the corner, these FreakShake MiniCakes would be great for any parties you have planned, or would be a good plan for some baking fun with the kids over the half term holidays.

How to Make Double Decker FreakShake MiniCakes / Cupcakes

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C (150 degrees fan). Line a mini muffin/cupcake tin with canape/mini muffin paper cups

2. For the mini canape cakes, cream the butter and sugar in a stand mixer on high speed till light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix till combined. Tip in all the dry ingredients and beat on medium speed, scraping the sides down to mix well and until just coming together. Pour in the buttermilk and mix till you have a smooth batter. Do not over mix

3. Place a teaspoon of the batter into each cup in the prepared tin. Bake for 15 minutes. Leave to cool in tin for 5 minutes before removing from tray on a wire rack.

4. For the frosting, place the sugar in a shallow saucepan and caramelise over low-medium heat till amber. Simultaneously, place the cream and salt in a saucepan and bring to simmer over medium heat. Pour the hot cream into the caramel and stir to combine over low heat (be careful as it can bubble up). Set aside in a bowl to cool.

5. Fold 2/3 of the caramel sauce into the marshmallow fluff.
