The best Birthday Volcano Cake is so easy! Just follow these simple steps.
- Bake two sponges using your favourite recipe. Also use a little of the mix to bake 6 cup cakes.
Spread your favourite Jam/Jelly on each cake. Whip cream and spread on 1 cake
Put the second cake on top of the first (jam/jelly side to cream). Then spread a crumb coat (or thin layer of cream) all over the cake to stop crumbs messing up your icing layer.
Whip together butter and icing to make a butter cream. Add orange food colour. Put a small bowl of the icing to one side and then add chocolate powder to the remaining orange icing. Mix to make a lovely dark chocolate icing. (I’ve used a natural orange colour so it is not very bright).
Pile 4 cup cakes onto the cake to make a mountain and cut 2 cup cakes into 1/4’s then arrange till fill in the gaps.
The finished volcano/mountain shape.
Cover the entire cake with the chocolate icing. Cut out a depression in the top of the mountain from the icing.
Smooth ‘rivers’ of the orange icing down the cake to form the flowing lava.
Decorate as you wish. I have used neon coloured sugar and jelly dinosours. Let your create side explode! Tip – Use sparklers as candles to create a great fiery explosion. Also popping candy down the lava is great fun too!
