Mr R’s 30! – Birthday cake – (Nutella buttercream recipe)

Last week Mr R turned 30 and I want to share the cake I made for him. On the eve of his birthday I asked him what cake he wanted and he said ” I want a nice chocolate cake! full of chocolate! You know how much I love chocolate!” So decided why not combine all his favourite chocolates and make one nice big chocolate cake. The result was a close to 5 kg oooeeeyy gooney chocolate cake. When he came back home that evening I told him I was too unwell to bake a cake. When when I got the cake out of the fridge and set it out onto the table, that look on his face was Priceless!! He figured that the cake had all his favourite forms of chocolate. A quadruple Chocolate mud cake with nutella butter cream frosting and each layer stuffed with butterscotch chocolates and topped with all his favourite chocolates. 

Here are the photos –





I would also like to share my nutella butter cream recipe that I used for this cake so here it goes


  1. Nutella – 1 cup
  2. Butter – 2 cups
  3. Powdered Sugar – 2 cups (more if you want it more sweeter)
  4. Vanilla Extract – 2tbsp
  5. Milk – 3 tbsp


Instructions :-

  1. First in a bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add 1 tbsp at a time
  2. Once the sugar and butter have combined well, slowly add the nutella one tbsp at a time
