Stepping Into a New World- Dotty Chocolate Chip Cake

My friend Esther’s daughter turns thirteen today, she is stepping into a whole new world! What significance could I have given to her on this unique day of her life, that her approaching days in her life will  only be multi-coloured, vivid and vibrant just like our dreams.  To celebrate and honour this occasion, I made this moist and rich dotty chocolate chip  cake for her, not to mention oh so delicious and oh so dream!!.
175 gms soft margarine,
17gms caster sugar,
3 eggs beaten,
175 gms plain flour,
1 tsp baking powder,
1 tsp baking powder,
2 tbsp cocoa powder,
55gms white chocolate chips,
40 gms small coloured sweets to decorate
For the icing
175 gms milk chocolate or plain chocolate,
100 gms unsalted butter,
1 tbsp golden syrup
Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas Mark 3. Grease a 20 cm/ 8 inch round cake tin and line the base with baking paper.
Place the margarine, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in the bowl and beat until just smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips, mix evenly.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and spread the top level. Bake in the heated oven for 45 minutes, until risen and firm to the touch. Leave to cool in the tin for5 minutes, then turn out and finish cooling completely on a wire rack.
For the icing, place the chocolate, butter and golden syrup  in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until just melted and smooth.
Remove from the heat and leave to cool until it begins to thicken enough to leave a trail when the spoon is lifted. Pour the icing over the top of the cake, allowing it to drizzle down the sides. Arrange the sweets over the top of the cake!
