Halloween Spider Web Chocolate Cake – Best Cheap Easy Holiday Party Food Project

Instructions

Black Cocoa Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, grease three 6″ round baking pans and dust with cocoa powder. Line bottoms with parchment.
  2. Place all dry ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Stir to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk all wet ingredients (pour coffee in slowly as not to cook the eggs if very hot).
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix on medium for 2-3 mins. Batter will be very thin.
  5. Pour evenly into prepared pans. I used a kitchen scale to ensure the batter is evenly distributed.
  6. Bake for 25mins, rotate pans in oven.
  7. Bake until a cake tester comes out mostly clean. A total of 30-35mins. Cool in pans for 10mins, then turn out to cool completely on a wire rack.

Orange Buttercream:

  1. Whip butter until creamy in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle.
  2. Reduce speed to low and add in icing sugar 1 cup at a time until well blended.
  3. Increase speed to med and beat for 3 minutes.
  4. Add orange extract and cream and continue to beat on medium for 1 minute. Add in color gel and whip until combined.
  5. Frost cooled cake layers and chill.

White Buttercream:

  1. Whip shortening until creamy in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle. Reduce speed to low and add in icing sugar 1 cup at a time until well blended.
  2. Increase speed to med and beat for 3 minutes. Add water and continue to beat on medium for 1 minute.
  3. Using a #2 pastry tip, pipe spiderweb pattern on chilled cake.
