Halloween is very near.
If you are planning to make a cake but haven't decided which one yet this post could give you some idea..
I prepared Cemetery Cake like 3 years ago but for some reason I couldn't manage to share it until now!
It is, in fact, a combination of various recipes that I had already posted in the blog.
For more Halloween ideas you can visit the blog posts under this label.
- Cake dough, syrup and filling cream from Chocolate Mimosa Cake recipe.
- Chocolate sauce for the top
- Biscuits for tombstone decoration
- Melted chocolate for tombstone decoration
- Ground Oreo biscuits for soil decoration
- Chocolate shards as in Devil's Food cake recipe for the edges of our cemetery cake
- Prepare the cake dough as in the Chocolate Mimosa Cake recipe. However, bake in a 20x30 cm cake tin. Let it cool several hours.
- Prepare the syrup as in the Chocolate Mimosa Cake recipe. (Considering our little guests I prepared the syrup without rum this time. Instead I used 150 g water, 50 g sugar and vanilla)
- Prepare the filling cream as in the Chocolate Mimosa Cake recipe..
- Prepare the Chocolate sauce as in the recipe.
- Cut cake in half.
- Brush the bottom layer with the half of the syrup. Spread the most of the filling cream over. (Keep a small amount of the filling cream aside to cover the edges later)
- Carefully place the 2nd layer. Brush with the remaining syrup.
- Spread the Chocolate sauce on the top. Cover the edges with the remaining cream which you previously set aside.
- Decorate some biscuits like tombstones using some melted chocolate.
- Decorate the edges of the cake with chocolate shards which you prepared as in the Devil's Food cake recipe.
- Make small incisions on the cake, where you plan to place the tombstones, and insert them gently.
- Decorate in front of some of the tombstones with ground Oreo biscuits.
- I have a Hallowen themed chocolate mold at home. I melted some white and milk chocolate and decorated my cake additionally with witha ghost, bat, skull and jack-o'-lanterns.
- Let your cake rest and cool in the fridge.
Happy Halloween ;)
