I've wanted to make this ever since I first saw the Cake contest. Honestly, I'm surprised no-one has made one, save the Rick Roll cake, which is a lie. So at the urging of the voices in my head, my GLaBox360, and siblings, I made the cake. I'll admit, this project had a steep learning curve. Could it have turned out better? Of course, but it was delicious(and moist) nonetheless. So enough babbling, let's make some cake already!
Step 1: Gather materials
Best not to constantly raid the cupboard, Just get what you want now. The nice thing about the portal cake is that you can't be too sure what the hack what is. Are those red things cherries, rhubarb, or high explosive? You never can tell. However, what I used:
-Cake Mix (One box, plus whatever it says you need)
-Chocolate (I used chips, you could use shavings, squares, whatever)
-Frosting (White, for sure)
Equipment wise, you'll want:
-Two 9-inch pans (Nonstick, preferably)
-Pam (For if you don't have Teflon pans. Trust me, you'll need this)
-A Mixing bowl
-A mixer (Someone to mix for you, the electric kind, or both. It's up to you)
Step 2: Make the Cake Bases
No real instructions here, they're on the box. If you really desperately need instructions, you probably shouldn't be cooking. But, do please remember to spray your pans with non-stick, we forgot the first time around, and one of the cakes broke, irreparably. We had to bake another batch, but hey, we got a free third layer. Whatever works, I guess.
