These are my cactus cakes I made for my birthday, as you can probably guess from the title, I don't decorate cakes very often and when I do it's just sticking chocolate buttons in icing.

Since no one else on instructables seems to have made any cactus cakes i can copy, this is what i've made.

For anyone else who loves cactuses and chocolate cake...

Step 1: Mixture

•200g butter
•200g sugar
•200g flour
•4 eggs
•cocoa powder
•bar of chocolate
•paper cake cases

This part is easy. Feel free to skip it and make your own chocolate cakes (or any other kind of cake, i just thought chocolate would look like the soil).

Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl. Whisk in the eggs and then slowly stir the flour and cocoa powder in. Leave the mixer going for a while until its completely smooth and the colour is equal.

Meanwhile, get a bar of chocolate and smash it up with the end of a rolling pin, then carefully open it and stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon. (I suppose you could just buy chocolate chips, but this is more fun)

Give the whisk to a nearby child.
they were very nice
very impressive! will check with the cake decorator for my wedding because of the location it would absolutely fit! that and my better half is into the baking thing so i think this would be a nice challenge for her.
Thanks wow that would be amazing
I like to dig a hole in my backyard, stand in it and pretend I'm a carrot
