Mississippi White Chocolate Cake

Hi Everyone,

This Mississippi White Chocolate Cake has seriously got to be one of my favourite cakes from a taste point of view.

It also has the added benefit of not needing any icing other than a sprinkle of icing sugar on top. The slices of cake look pretty on their own with the 3 chocolate eyes appearing on every slice.

The trick is to make sure you cover the chocolate bars carefully with cake mixture as you prepare each layer. Just follow the instructions in this recipe and then all will be ok!
