this is a decorating/cake sculpting project. learn how to transform two 13x9 cakes into a deliciously edible time bomb. this is a super fun baking project + pretty simple as far as cake sculpting goes. the finished cake shape doesn't deviate much from it is original shape. i did my best to give step by step instructions for anyone who might like to make a time bomb birthday cake, of their very own.....and, if you should take up the challenge, please send me pictures.
you'll need the following items to get started:
2 cake mixes
2 containers of cream cheese frosting
1 container of chocolate frosting
various serrated knives
black licorice whips
2 or 3 rectangular crackers
Step 1: Step one*
bake two 13x9 cakes, i am pretty sure i used two basic yellow cake mixes. once there out the oven, chill on a rack till the cakes are cool enough to remove from their respective pans. now, sandwich the cakes together with chocolate frosting. place in the fridge for a few hours. the cake is easier to carve + shape when it has been chilled.
Step 2: Step two*
remove cake from fridge + carve out the dynamite sticks. i am not sure how to instruct this part, cause i just made it up as i went along. it is nice if you have a few dynamite images around to refer to. also be sure to use a serrated knife. it helps to have a long knife for lengthwise cuts and a smaller knife for carving the rounded ends.
