  1. Preheat your oven to 180°/365°F and grease and flour your cake tins and set aside.
  2. Combine the milk and apple cider vinegar in a glass/bowl and leave aside while you make the batter.
  3. Mix together the dry ingredients into a large bowl until fully combined.
  4. Pour in the wet ingredients, oil, coffee and chocolate spread and mix until combined.
  5. Pour into your prepared cake tins and bake for 25-35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. As the cakes cool, make the frosting, begin by heating all the frosting ingredients over medium-high heat, mixing constantly until the mixture is smooth and melted.
  7. Cool the frosting in the freezer for 30 minutes, making sure to cover it with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming.
  8. Remove the frosting from the freezer and whisk until fluffy. Then assemble the cake. Frost in between the layers and around the cake.
  9. Finally decorate with a handwritten message in chocolate. To do this, melt some white chocolate in a bowl at 30 second intervals, transfer it into a piping bag, trim the end of the bag and write your message on a sheet of parchment paper. Let it set in the fridge, then top it on the cake.
  10. Finally, show it off to your mum, then slice and enjoy!
