Cinnamon chocolate cake with maple custard filling topped with 100 & 1000’s & pineapple flowers 

It was my bestie’s & a special lil boy’s birthday so for dinner, I decided to make a special cake. 

I started with the pineapple flowers. Thinly slice some fresh pineapple. Place each in a muffin hole. Place in the oven on low to dry out as you make the rest.

The cake was easy enough, a normal chocolate cake so whip up butter & sugar, add eggs, then combine in self raising flour, cocoa powder & cinnamon. Once combined, it can be baked in the oven. Don’t forget to take the pineapple flowers out first. 

While it is baking, cook up the custard using milk & custard powder on the stovetop according to the instructions on the packet. Instead of sugar, pour in 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup. 

Leave the cake & custard to cool. Once the cake is cool, slice into half & fill with custard in the middle.

Combine 2 cups of icing sugar, a cup of chocolate powder & 2-3 tablespoons of milk. Mix till smooth & spread over the cake as a glaze. Place in the fridge overnight to chill & set. 

The next day, before serving, sprinkle with 100’s & 1000’s & the pineapple flowers.
