Step 1: Materials Needed

When I decided to do this, I may have gotten a little crazy in what I bought to make this all come together.  So, in the end I did not use everything photographed.  I will at the end give some tips of suggestions of other items you could use.  That said let's jump right in!

Materials Needed

9" L X 9" W X 2" D Pan (I used two but you can easily use one over and over again)
2 Chocolate cake mixes (brand of your choice)
4 containers of chocolate frosting (brand of your choice)
2 packages of chocolate sandwich cookies
3 Containers of Milk Chocolate Rock candy
1 King size Kit-Kat
Black food coloring
1 Bag of Andes Mints
1 Package cake mate (4 small frosting tubes classic colors)

Step 2: Time to Bake

Spray your pan and mix your cake mix with the required ingredient on the package.

For my cake, I split one boxed cake mix between two pans.  After baking I realized it needed to be taller, so I ran out bought another cake mix and baked the whole thing in one pan.

Tip: In retrospect I should have used a whole cake mix in each pan not splitting it out.  In good news, my error will be your win! :)

Step 3: Chill Out Cake!

Remove the cakes from their pans and let them cool.  This just speeds up your cooling process.  I threw mine on plates.

Note: Here you see the cakes I split the batter between.  You will notice they are pretty small, so again I'd suggest using a whole mix in one pan.

Has this won yet???

No word yet, fingers crossed! I know everyone in the finals is on the edge of their seat! Likely eating chocolate to keep themselves calm. :)

Take pictures! I'd love to see it! I can not lie, some rocks did not make to the cake but into my moat-o-stomach instead as I was building!

xD. Have this on Man v Food, see if that dude can eat the whole cake! It's so big! And nommy. NOM NOM NOM!
poofrabbit (author)  oRelyTo2 years ago
I think the guy would vomit! It was super rich! However, I too would love to see someone try...it would be very entertaining! :)
It would be very entertaining, and ya, most likely to vomit with so much sugar. One smaaall bite at a time. :P
poofrabbit (author)  oRelyTo2 years ago
Yep! There is so much chocolate and sugar one would vomit if they ate it all. The good news? I don't think it would taste so bad the second time around. (gross to think about....but so true!)

I love all the little extras you used such as the blue icing to appear as a water moat around the castle---way cool idea!! Hope you win.
poofrabbit (author)  mini_mom2 years ago

I'm hungry... I wish I worked with you!
poofrabbit (author)  splazem2 years ago
It was pretty good, but it was rich a small piece went a long way. I worried I would throw people into diabetic comas! I made this to enter myself in the chocolate contest, so I wanted to go big and make everything out of chocolate. If I make it again, I think I would do a white cake and a chocolate cake, with vanilla icing with some black food coloring to make it grey, more castle like. :) I had such a blast making this and a great time hearing how many people loved it and had never heard of chocolate rock!
Cool.

Thanks a million! I fed it to people at work today, and they loved it! Not a single piece was left. Pretty darn cool. :)
