Volcano Cake




Below are instructions for a volcano cake that really "erupts"

Step 1:

Make your favorite chocolate cake recipe and bake in three 6 inch round pans and one 8 inch round pan

Step 2:

Cut the top off of a small empty water bottle. Cut a whole in the center of the 6 inch cakes to fit the bottle.

Step 3:

Stack the 6 inch cakes around the bottle spreading chocolate frosting between layers

Step 4:

Frost the 8 inch cake with white frosting.

Step 5:

Using a knife cut the 6 inch cakes around the bottle to the shape of a volcano and frost with chocolate frosting

Step 6:

Place the volcano on the center of the 8 inch cake

Step 7:

Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on the white frosting of the 8 inch cake

Step 8:

Decorate the cake with green frosting for the greenery, blue frosting for the water around the base of the cake. Add trees and dinosaur molded out of fondant (optional)

Step 9:

Place a small piece of dry ice in the bottle. Add warm water and watch your volcano erupt

    Looks great! A medium bundt cake on top of a larger one gives you the round shape and hole in the middle without carving! Mini bundt cakes make cute individual volcano cakes!
