Bilgi Bakes | Celestial Midnight Moon Chocolate Cakes

Today I am sharing some baking with y'all. It feels like ages since my last baking blog post and they are truly some of my favourites so it is about time I thought! I have been making some Celestial Midnight Moon Chocolate Cakes which are a treat for the eyes as well as being delicious. It's a light chocolate sponge, Nutella middle because they're 'extra' like that and vanilla and coco butter frosting with a malty moon and chocolate stars. Creative and cute, they're a great treat to rustle up at the weekend or whenever you fancy a chilled afternoon or evening.
