This is a fun an easy cake to make for Halloween, and the kids will LOVE helping and decorating. I found a cute bunny cutter in a Japanese shop and decided that would be perfect for making evil bunnies for Halloween (am I twisted?) You can use whatever spooky shapes you want!

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Tray Bake
  • 200g chocolate chips
  • 200g/ 1-½ cups self raising flour
  • 200g / 1 cup caster sugar
  • 6 tbsp / ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 150 ml / ¾ cup sunflower oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 280 ml / 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

 

  • Chocolate ganache
  • 200g Chocolate bitter sweet / dark chocolate chips
  • 200ml (1cup) Double / heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter

 

  • Decorations:
  • Bunny cutter (or use a spooky shape cutter)
  • 1 pack fondant icing
  • little extra icing sugar for rolling
  • black and red small icing tubes for decorating

Instructions

  1. You will need: 8in x 8in Baking tin lined and greased
  2. Preheat oven to 350f /180c
  3. This is a very easy recipe – simply beat all the cake ingredients together apart from the chocolate chips, in a big bowl until smooth
  4. Then stir in the chocolate chips
  5. Pour into your lined baking tin and pop into the oven for 25- 30 minutes or until cooked through. To test if the cake is cooked poke a small skewer in the center of the cake and if it comes out clean it is done
  6. Or you can press it gently with your finger and if it bounces back it is cooked
  7. Leave to cool on a wire rack before making your ganache/ frosting
  8. To make your chocolate ganache, simply heat the cream and butter until hot – NOT boiling
  9. Pour on top of your chocolate chips and stir until smooth
  10. The heat of the cream melts the chocolate
  11. Cut the cake into squares and coat with the ganache
  12. Pop into the fridge to harden while you make your evil bunnies (or whatever evil shapes you want)
  13. Dust a clean work surface with icing sugar, and a rolling pin
  14. Roll the fondant icing out until quite thin
  15. Using your cutter cut out the shapes and decorate using the black / red icing tubes.
  16. Stick the cut out faces / shapes on top of your cakes and serve up!
