Your friends and family are guaranteed to go nuts for this amazing showstopper cake. Soft chocolate sponge cake sandwiched with a creamy peanut butter frosting and caramel sauce. The piece de resistance of this cake is the tower of snickers and caramel popcorn that tops the cake. This is a great cake for any special occasion from Father's Day to birthdays.


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, gas mark 3). Grease and line two 8" round sandwich cake tins.

  2. Beat together the oil, yoghurt, marmalade, sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the cake mixture.

  3. Spoon into the prepared tins and bake for 30 minutes.

  4. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes then turn out on to a wire rack to become cold.

  5. To make the buttercream, beat together the icing sugar, softened butter, peanut butter and milk until smooth and creamy.

  6. Spread part of the dulce de leche caramel on to one of the chocolate sponges then top with some of the buttercream. Sandwich the other sponge on top and then spread the remaining buttercream over the top of the cake.

  7. Cut the snickers bars in to chunks and decorate the top of the cake with them and popcorn.

  8. Drizzle the remaining caramel over the top of the cake then serve.

  2. 5 star rating

    This was so easy to make and has turned out better than any cake I've ever made. I used fine cut marmalade and fat free yoghurt. Tastes delicious! My boys gave it 10 out of 10.
