Kit-kat cake

You've probably seen this cake a million times on the internet. At least, I had, and it's something I'd always wanted to try. So when my sister told me she wanted to make a cake for her friend's birthday and she didn't know how to decorate it... this came to my mind!
Probabemente hayáis visto esta tarta un millón de veces en internet. Yo, por lo menos, sí, y era algo y que siempre quise probar a hacer. Así que cuando mi hermana me dijo que quería hacer una tarta para el cumpleaños de una amiga suya y que no sabía como decorarla... pensé en esto.

I must admit, it was her who baked the cakes, although I gave her the recipes. I've had a couple of birthdays this month and this has been my go-to cake! So when she asked me what cake to bake, I knew she couldn't go wrong with this one.
Tengo que admitir que las tartas las cocinó ella, aunque la receta se la di yo. Este cumpleaños he tenido un par de cumpleaños y esta tarta era una apuesta segura. Así que cuando me preguntó qué tarta podía hacer, sabía que no podía equivocarse con ésta.

Once she baked the cakes, she didn't know how to decorate it, so I suggested doing this and she liked the idea so I helped her decorate it and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Una vez que hizo las tartas, no sabía como decorarlas, así que sugerí que hiciésemos esto y le gustó la idea, así que le ayudé a decorarla y estoy bastante contenta con cómo salió.

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
    1 1/3 tazas de harina
  • 2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder
    2 cucharadas de cacao puro
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 cucharada de levadura
  • 3/4 cup room-temperature butter
    3/4 taza de mantequilla a temperatura ambiente
  • 1 cup white sugar
    1 taza azúcar blanca
  • 3 eggs
    3 huevos
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cucharadita estracto de vainilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
    2 cucharadas leche
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF / 180ºC
    Precalienta el horno a 180ºC (350ºF)
  2. In a big bowl (or in the bowl of an electric mixer), mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.
    En un bol grande, o en el de una batidora eléctrica, mezca la mantequilla, azúcar, huevos y estracto de vainilla.
  3. In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
    En un bol pequeño, mezcla la harina, cacao y levadura.
  4. Add the second mix into the first mix and mix everything again. Add milk and mix once more.
    Añade la segunda mezcla a la primera y vuelve a mezclar. Añade la leche y mezcla una vez más.
  5. Split the cake batter into 2 tins and bake them for 25 minutes aprox.
    Reparte la masa en 2 moldes de tarta y mételos en el horno 25 minutos aprox.

    Once you've baked your cakes, we joined ours with nutella. Then, buy a lot of candy and kitkats and stick the kit kats around the cake using more nutella.
    Una vez hayas cocinado las tartas, nosotras juntamos las nuestras con nutella. Luego, compra un montón de caramelos y kitkats y pega los kitkats alrededor de la tarta usando más nutella.
