Snowy Mountain Layer Cake

Guest recipe by Charley's Health.

Christmas Mountain Layer Cake

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 50 minutes | Difficulty: Medium | Suitability: Vegetarian

This Christmas, instead of scoffing your Toblerones straight from the packet like a greedy beast, why not use them to create a snow covered Christmas mountain, which you can consume with dignity and class, like the elegant cake connoisseur that you are?! 😂


Sponge Cake:



  • 1/2 Toblerone of your choice
  • 3 segments mini Toblerone
  • Icing sugar
  • Fresh berries and cranberries

Preheat your oven to 180c and line two 6inch loose bottom cake tins with baking paper.

  1. Mixing the soy milk and apple cider vinegar together, then set aside to thicken. This will form your vegan buttermilk alternative.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a wooden spoon to cream together the sugar and sunflower oil. Stir in the vanilla essence, coconut treacle and buttermilk to combine.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients and gently fold these into the wet mixture until you’re left with a smooth and creamy cake batter.
  4. Divide the batter between your cake tins and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. You can test if your cakes are ready by piercing with a toothpick. If this comes out clean, then they’re done!
  5. Meanwhile, to prepare the frosting, beat the butter using an electric hand whisk or stand mixer until pale and fluffy. Gradually add in the icing sugar, cocoa powder, spices and vanilla essence until everything is fully incorporated and you’re left with a gorgeously creamy frosting.
  6. Fold the melted chocolate into the frosting to combine.
  7. Once your cakes have both cooled, spread a layer of frosting onto one of the cakes and sprinkle with crushed toblerone. Carefully place the second layer on top, then used the remaining buttercream to evenly coat the cake. I like to use an offset spatula to ensure an even finish.
  8. To decorate the cake, layer some fresh berries and cranberries with more toblerone slices to achieve the mountain-like appearance. Then, dust generously with icing sugar for a snowy effect!
