For those of you unfamiliar with tablet (poor souls!), it is basically a crumblier, more buttery fudge. No chewing required as it melts in the mouth.
It is something I have grown up with and is traditionally handed out to kids at Halloween and is more often than not homemade. So I have something to confess! I bought this tablet. I know, shameful. But I justify it because this recipe was an experiment and making tablet can be time consuming, messy and I don't have a method which makes less than about oh... 50 squares?! But yes, terrible.
Anyway, I pared the tablet with a vanilla cake as tablet is incredibly sweet and doesn't need a competing flavour. For the frosting I ground up one bar of the tablet into a regular buttercream recipe and then added little chunks and mixed in lightly just before I frosted the cakes themselves. The result was an very sweet treat. One per person seems to be the limit before a sugar coma hits.
Also, I have a Twitter page and I would love more bakers/cake eaters to follow!
