Devil's Food Cake: Forget the name, this cake is heavenly. The crumb is tender, the filling and frosting luscious. When I made it one friday, I expected my children, resident food critics much in the mould of the Grim eater, to find it too dark, too rich, not sweet enough: you get the gist. Instead, I came down on Saturday morning to find nothing but an empty, chocolate-smeared cake stand and a trail of crumbs.
This is the most popular cake I have made, people are always asking me to make this cake, and it always seems to be men that ask for it. Devils food cake with chocolate fudge filling, twix bars round the edges, topped with toffee flavour cream cheese frosting, bronzed sugar pearls, Maltesers, chopped up toffee and fudge piecesand painted bronze fondant hearts, drizzled with toffee sauce and dusted with home made bronze flakes!
Your little goblins will be wide-eyed with wonder when you serve up this spooky fun Halloween devil's food cake. No super-fussy decorating skills are required either--simple dollop mounds of frosting onto the top of the cake using a piping or zip-top bag and finish off with candy eyeballs!
