Our last blognog post (snif snif), and it’s an awesome one. Melanie, from one of my very favorite daily reads, You Are my Fav, is showing us how to make this awesome surprise cake for New Years. So brilliant, I love it!!
I think it would be fun to crack open this cake at the stroke of midnight. It could be filled with treats, noise makers and confetti. You could even make individual mini cakes for your guests and all crack them at once with a explosion of confetti.
white chocolate (I used candy melts)
decorative frosting (for the glue)
paper circles or other decorations like jimmies
a surprise for the middle
Melt chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave.
Pour into a well oiled bowl. Using a spoon, move the chocolate to cover the entire surface of the bowl including the sides. A lot of the chocolate on the sides will initially drip to the bottom and that’s okay.
Put in freezer for 10 minutes or until hardened.
Take out and patch up any holes or thin areas with more melted chocolate. Place in freezer again until completely hardened.
When ready to decorate, flip bowl gently and carefully pull the chocolate away from the bowl. If it gets stuck, take a warm washcloth and rub it on the outside of the bowl to loosen the chocolate.
Decorate with toppings of your choice, gluing with frosting then put back in freezer until ready to use. Place surprises on a cake stand and cover with chocolate dome.
Crack open with a wooden spoon or toy mallet. Surprise!
