Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Use butter and grease tins. In a separate pan on low heat melt butter and add milk, yogurt, and vanilla. Add eggs to the mixture. Add little salt or sea salt and mix until smooth texture. Pour the mixture to the buttered tin. And bake for 23-25 minutes. After that, cool the tin with cake for some time and load it on the tray. Now, prepare the buttermilk using 2tbsp cocoa into milk. Mix it well.

In another bowl, use large chunks of butter with icing, add the cocoa mixture, vanilla, and salt. Beat it well. Now to create the complete dig cake, use Kit-Kat to border the area, by placing it vertically. About fifteen cm’s of the complete diameter of the cake can be uneven to give it the dug up look. Use powder crumbs from the tins left out to make soil. Put it inside the cake and use some gems and toy trucks to decorate. Cool it down for two days in moderate freezing temperatures.
