Box of Chocolates Cake – Sure to Impress but Simple to Make

Box of Chocolate Cake

My hubby loves chocolate and when I saw this box of chocolates cake earlier this year on Pinterest, I knew right away what I would be making for his birthday cake.

This birthday cake was actually used to celebrate three birthdays in the end so I used two favourite chocolates from each person, so there were six different chocolates in the box.

It was super easy to put together once I had made and iced the cake, probably taking 30mins to do – still laugh at the fact that I ended up one kit kat short, but just used a row of block chocolate instead.


  1. Make or buy slab cake – I made two 22cm square easy chocolate cakes from Donna Hays classic cookbook.
  2. Cover it in icing, starting with a bit on the bottom to stick the cake down. I used a divine buttercream chocolate ganache that I adapted from this recipe by using milk chocolate instead of white chocolate, adding a bit of cocoa and a little extra cream.

  3. Stick kit kat’s around the outside and secure with a ribbon.
  4. Use chomps, flakes, or rows of block chocolate to divide the cake into sections.

  5. Fill each section with different chocolate treats. My cake was to celebrate three birthday’s so I decorated it with two favourite chocolate treats for each person.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • If your cake isn’t that high (in comparison to the length of the kit kats), you will need to use more chocolates to fill the box.
  • The cake can be heavy once all the chocolates are on.
  • Deconstructing it to serve is a little tricky – just remove ribbon and kit kat’s first 🙂
