3. In a separate bowl whisk the remaining ingredients. Combine the liquid mixture with the dry mixture and mix thoroughly.

4. Pour into pan. Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, until risen and firm - test the cake with a skewer inserted into the centre, it should come out clean when ready. Cool completely before icing.

ICING: Combine chocolate and cream and melt over a low heat until smooth and glossy – allow to cool and thicken then spread over the cake. Decorate with ALLEN’S lollies as desired.


1. Lightly grease a 6 cup capacity glass bowl with oil; place bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes.

2. Melt chocolate following pack instructions and pour into the bowl. Slowly swirl chocolate to evenly coat the bowl. Continue rotating until chocolate begins to set; try to keep the chocolate a similar thickness, particularly at the edge.

3. Stand until chocolate is almost set. Cover and set aside in a cool place.

4. When needed, gently press/prise the chocolate shell from around the bowl to loosen. If it does not release easily, cover the base of the bowl with a warm tea towel until it slips out.

5. Pile lollies onto the centre of the cake and carefully place chocolate shell over them.

6. Using melted chocolate, secure the lollies and strawberry to the chocolate shell.

7. Serve and allow the birthday child to break the chocolate shell open with a toy hammer
