I thought that with all the different treats at Halloween, this might be a useful way to use them up! I often make birthday cakes for my nieces and nephews and this was one creation which ended up being devoured after a lot of playing, a lot of chocolatey faces and a lot of sticky fingers! It is quite simple to assemble but looks very effective! To save time, you can buy Swiss roll cakes in advance.
Even get help from other members of the family as it can be great fun creating….although you may end up with no ingredients left to make the cake!
2 chocolate Swiss roll cakes
1 pack chocolate finger biscuits
1 pack ‘Jammy Dodger’ type biscuits (around 8 individual)
1 pack mini chocolate rolls (about 12 individual)
1 chocolate teacake
2 large white marshmallows (for steam coming out of the train!) - An assortment of colourful or chocolatey sweets to decorate the train
