Chocolate cake Halloween style. This amazing cake is the perfect. Its an easy stir together recipe that makes a moist chocolatey cake thats great for layering.
Halloween has been extra big this year, already. Not only have I been dressed as a Vampire at Not Quite Nigella’s annual Halloween party but this is my second Halloween themed cake.
In Australia Halloween is still a bit new. I was surprised to hear an advert on the radio this morning for “last minute Halloween costumes for the whole family”. Halloween , you have arrived. There are a lot of people resistant to the idea of another commercial opportunity to make money, but I just love the chance to play around with new recipes and have some fun dressing up. It’s not for everyone, but there are some very spooky recipes to be found. I first saw this cake on Country Living here. I made up my own recipe but follow whichever one you like if you want to make this spectacular cake.
