½ cup coconut sugar
½ cup CHOC Chick Cacao Butter beans, melted (approx. 52 beans)

Decorations

A sprinkle of CHOC Chick Cacao Nibbles
A sprinkle of coconut flakes
 
2 x 5 inch spring form pans

      

Cake

Put all of the ingredients for the cake into a large mixing bowl or food processor, and combine well.

Line the spring form pans with baking paper, and then divide the cake mixture between the two, making sure you press the mixture down tightly. Then put the two cakes into the freezer for up to an hour to firm up.

 

Frosting

To make the frosting, simply combine all of the ingredients together and once the frosting has thickened, it’s time to put the cake together.

Put a little frosting on one half of the cake, followed by sliced strawberries. Put the other cake layer on top, then decorate the whole of the outside with an even layer of frosting.

Top with fresh summer strawberries, CHOC Chick cacao nibbles and coconut flakes.

Store in the fridge for up to a week, or slice and store in the freezer for up to a month.
