That looks sooooo yummmmmmyyyyyyyyy lol quick question…….is it caster sugar or granulated sugar ?
Caster sugar for this one. Thanks for the Question, I’ve updated the notes to save any further confusion. Good luck!
Hi will you be adding this recipe to the cake calculator ?
Sorry for the delay. That’s the Mint Choc cake added to the Cake Recipe re-sizing calculator….https://www.cakeflix.com/cake-size-calculator
What are the other alternatives to poppets we just dont have them in Leeds anymore
Paul suggests mint chocolate matchmakers would be a great replacement and perhaps even better!
Hello. How thick are your cake layers usually for wedding cake? 1″ or 2″
The cakes baked in this tutorial are around 1.5″ depth. Usually a wedding cake tier would be considered at around 3″, but some can be twice the depth, just depending on the design.
hi there im from New Zealand and we don’t have poppets. is there a substitute I can use?
I’m not too familiar with what’s available, but Paul suggests just increasing the amount of matchmakers to replace the poppets. They just melt in to enhance the flavour. It’s a delicious cake 🙂
hi there again. So I’m about to smash this cake out, I am from New Zealand so finding your candy here can be challenging. I managed to find the club biscuits in some strange store that stocks everything under the sun, I haven’t been able to find poppets but have found match makers again in a strange store, but have found them. Now the recipe calls for 3 x packets of poppets that are 154g a pack, the matchmakers are 120g a packet. Shall I just throw 3 x packs of the matchmakers in? I am all about winging stuff but I really would like to get this cake to the exact flavour that you get it to as it looks epic. again hunting down mint aero was a mission but I did it.
hi Kerstyn, the mint poppets are just to give the chocolate some extra flavouring. 3 packets of matchmakers will do exactly the same job, giving the chocolate a light mint taste. Hope the bake goes well after all your efforts. Good luck!
Nothing in the downloadable file.
The tools and ingredients (T&I) link is downloading correctly for me. Can you let me know the link that isn’t working and I’ll get it fixed asap?
If the T&I link isn’t working for you please let me know the device and software version that you are using to allow me to replicate the issue at my end.

Hope this is what you were asking for.
That’s the link fixed now. The original was linked to a Word doc which is why it wouldn’t open on Mac.
I’ve switched it over to a pdf document so you should be able to open and view it on teh course page or via the link below…
Thank you David, link works.
