ferrero rocher cake



Well that most definitely was a whirl wind Christmas!  All the planning and the excitement and its over so quickly. We have just finished off the last of the Christmas Ham in the Ryan House, and as for the Turkey, the turkey never made it to the oven!! Huge disaster it still hadn’t defrosted by Christmas Morning, so ended up in the bin, lucky enough I had an emergency chicken in the fridge, the kids never noticed the difference.

Even with all the boxes of biscuits and half eaten tubs of Roses and Quality Street left, I still couldn’t finish the year off without making my Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Gateaux.

It’s become a New Years Eve tradition. I’ve made a good few of them over the Christmas period but I can guarantee you  there will be still  be one Ferrero Cake sitting on the table to welcome in 2018 and quite a few made to hand out to neighbors and friends.  The total so far for this new years welcome gift is just about to hit the 10 mark,  so I figured I better do this post before I’m knee-high in Ferrero and chocolate.

It truly amazes me how much chocolate my kids can polish off in one day and never get sick of it!!  I mean by the end of Boxing Day  I’ve just about had enough of quality street and chocolate Kimberly to last me a life time of course that  still doesn’t stop me picking at them.  Every year I swear I won’t buy so much chocolate and biscuits but always end up buying more. I mean it would help if a certain Irish Supermarket  didn’t sell tubs of Cadburys Roses and Hero’s for 3 euros on Christmas Eve, that’s too much temptation even for me.

Before December even began I had already stocked up on quite a few boxes of Ferrero Rocher.  I’m sure the girls in the local Dealz shop must think I’m a Ferrero addict. I won’t lie to you this cake is an extremely chocolaty luxurious cake, not your every day chocolate cake but absolutely perfect for Christmas or New year. I’s filled and coated with a scrumptious chocolate ganache, it truly is Ferrero Chocolate heaven and very surprisingly not that difficult to make.   For a little bit of time and effort you end up with a stunning delicious cake.
