Get create in the kitchen..while having a hoot of a time.

200 g caster sugar

200 g margarine softened

140 g self-raising flour

0.5 tsp baking powder

4 medium eggs

100 ml double cream

a knob of butter

4 tbsp Cadbury Bournville Cocoa Powder

100 g Cadbury Bournville Dark Chocolate

2 Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons

1 bag of Cadbury Dairy Milk White Chocolate Buttons

1 bag of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons

1 Cadbury Flake

1 Packet of The Natural Confectionery Co.Party Mix

Preheat the oven to 180C fan/160C and line your cake tin with greaseproof paper. Cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs with 2 tbsps of flour, then add the remaining flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.

Place in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack for five minutes. Make the icing. Melt the chocolate and cream together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, Once melted, remove from the heat and add a knob of butter, stirring until combined. Leave to cool and thicken up until you have a good spreading consistency.Use a serrated knife to cut out an owl shape. Use the left-over sponge to create two wings and place on either side. Add a layer of icing until the whole cake is fully covered. Begin by placing two giant buttons as eyes, then two white chocolate buttons for the pupils. Create a beak by using a Cadbury’s Maynards mix-up raspberry jelly. 

Using your fingers, crush up the chocolate flakes and use to cover the wings, the ears and around the owl’s face to create a feathery look. Finally, place layers of milk and white chocolate buttons for the owl’s belly. Slice and enjoy!
