Halloween Cake Recipe
Prep time: 60 mins
Cook time: 30 mins
Total time: 1 hour 30 mins
Serves: 10
  1. Preheat the oven for 350F.
  2. Grease twin cake tins and set aside.
  3. In a small pan set over low heat, melt together the chocolate and butter with 100ml water.
  4. Sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder. Mix in the eggs until well blended. Stir in the chocolate and butter.
  5. Spoon into the tins and smooth the top. Bake for 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean when inserted.
  6. Pop out of the tins and set aside to cool.
  7. For the Icing:
  8. Mix together the sugar, cocoa and egg white, until it's pourable but stiff. You may need a little water or sugar until you get the right consistency. Add food colouring as desired. There's no wrong way to decorate this cake!
  9. To create the green goo I poured it on in the middle then slowly tilted the cake different directions until I reached the desired drippy look. I waited for this to dry completely [about 20 minutes] and added a spoonful of fresh sticky icing to the middle [as 'glue'] before adding the next layer on top.
  10. I then proceeded to decorate the top with two different coloured icings using the same method as above. By creating a red layer of icing and 'drawing on' the spider web with the final layer of black icing.
  11. Have fun!!
