Welcome to day 3 of #Choctoberfest! I hope you have been able to find some yummy, fun recipes that you want to make!
Today I made a Chocolate Mini Cake all dressed up in colorful frosting to celebrate Halloween! I made This cake was made on a mini waffle maker, and if you have never made a waffle cake, you will want to try it asap! They are very easy, and so quick to make. Plus they are fun! They follow the back of the box recipe, and the fun comes in decorating the cake in all the seasonal colors and candy compliments! 5 Layer Chocolate Autumn Cake
(one mix makes 2-3 mini cakes)
(printable recipe at end of page)
1 box Duncan Hines Cake
1 1/3 cup Water
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
Mix the water and vegetable oil into the cake mix. Add the eggs and mix well.
I used a mini waffle maker for this small cake! Follow the directions for the waffle maker you are using, and cook your layers.
Let the layers cool while you make your frosting.
In a large bowl, pour in the warm water and the meringue powder. Mix it with a whisk for approx. 30 seconds. Add the cream of tartar and mix for 30 seconds more. Pour in all the confectioners sugar at one time, and using a paddle attachment on low speed, mix for 10 minutes. The icing will become thick and creamy. Keep this frosting covered to prevent it from drying out. You won’t need all the frosting for this cake. You will need approximately 1 cup or less. Remove a cup from the frosting and thin it with water, a teaspoon at a time, until you are happy with the drizzle. Divide the frosting into 2 separate bowls. Tint one with orange and one with yellow color.
Start building the layers, drizzling on and over each layer. I used 5 layers.
Decorate the cake on top and around the bottom.
Enjoy your 5 Layer Chocolate Autumn Cake!
