How-To Make A Killer Cake For A Theme Party

Well, here you are, and I am sure you are just dying to find out How-To Make A Killer Cake! Rory turned 21 recently, and she wanted to host a Murder Mystery party for her friends. The party was a blast, and this cake one of the highlights.

 

Make A Killer Cake

Slay your guests with presentation and flavor!

 

I have to tell you, this amazing killer cake was one of the easiest cakes I have ever made. It is my very first “poke cake.” I did cheat a little and use a box mix and a couple cans of frosting. But with my little additions, the flavor soared, and the presentation was phenomenal.

Whenever I make a cake for Rory, I have to switch out the oil in the recipe for applesauce. It’s a special dietary thing, but it does take out most of the fat from the cake batter! You simply replace the oils with the same amount of applesauce. Easy. I also added a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to the batter. We love that amazing vanilla flavor. Because I wanted to have nice thick layers of cake, I used two box mixes.

After I baked the cake (according to the box directions) and let them cool, I use the handle end of a wooden spoon to stab holes into each layer. Be sure to NOT go all the way through the cake. Making the depths of the holes differing depths is nice.

Making the Red Ganache

Making ganache is really very easy, but wow, is it delicious! You will need a double boiler. If you don’t have one, use a metal or oven-safe glass bowl set over the top of pan of boiling water.

Ingredients:

  • 1 – Bag of White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 – container Heavy Cream
  • Red Food Coloring (one for baking is best, it offers more intense color)

Directions:

  1. Boil the water in the bottom pan of the double boiler, and turn the heat down until it keeps a gentle boil.
  2. Add the bag of White Chocolate Chips
  3. Add Heavy Cream, a little at a time to desired consistency
  4. Stir almost constantly, as you do not want the chocolate to burn.

Spoon the red ganache into each hole, and spread some on the top of both layers. Frost the top of your bottom layer and stack the top layer onto it. Frost the top of the cake, then move onto the sides. Add more frosting as needed to cover the red ganache.

I funneled the ganache into a squeeze bottle, but you can use whatever you have, even a spoon will work. You want to drizzle the ganache around the top edge of the cake. Go slowly and use enough ganache for it to drip down the sides of the cake creating a dripping blood effect. Once you have gone all around the cake, fill in the top of the killer cake with the bloody red ganache.

Just before presenting the cake, thrust a large knife into the center. Your guests will ooh and aw over this Killer Cake! When you cut it to serve, you will see the red ganache has dripped through the middle of the cake — it’s a bloody good effect.

Fresh Orange Bundt Cake Recipe

An orange grove baked in a cake! This amazing Orange Bundt Cake is made with fresh oranges – perfect for entertaining or anytime. Get the Recipe.

 

Fresh Orange Bundt Cake

Let Us All Eat Cake!

 

Some days you just feel like having a little treat. And, when you have a kitchen full of fresh fruit, you can easily be inspired… So, let us all eat cake!

One of Luke’s customers, at the classic car and hot rod shop, has avocado and citrus groves down in Fallbrook, California. And we have been so lucky this past month to have Gary bring us boxes of these fresh fruits. There is nothing more delicious than fresh picked produce. I wanted to do something with the amazingly sweet oranges I had on hand, so I decided to create a Fresh Orange Bundt Cake from scratch. I have to admit, I was excited to get baking and taste the results.

This Bundt cake did not disappoint. It is easy to whip together, and the aromas make your home smell heavenly. The refreshing orange flavor excites the taste buds, and the cake is moist and delicious. It is a perfect cake for spring and summer.

Fresh Orange Bundt Cake Recipe

Here’s What You Need

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cups – Butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 Cups – Granulated Sugar
  • 4 – Eggs
  • 2 to 3 – Oranges (1/2 cup juice with pulp, 4 teaspoons zest)
  • 3 Cups – Flour
  • 1 teaspoon – Salt-
  • 1 teaspoon – Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon – Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup – Yogurt (I used Greek vanilla yogurt)[br][br][b]The Glaze:[/b]
  • 1 Cup – Powdered Sugar
  • 1/8 Cup – Juice little to no pulp
  • 1 teaspoon – Orange Zest for garnish (optional)
  • 2 Orange Slices for garnish (optional)

Here’s What You Do

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Butter your Bundt pan, and dust with four. Be sure to get into all the nooks, crannies, and crevices of the Bundt pan.

The first thing you want to do is get your fresh oranges ready to go. Peel the oranges and remove the seeds. Cube the orange, and zest the orange peels. I chopped my zest to make it fine, but you do not have to. Place cubed oranges into your blender and puree.

Cream butter and granulated sugar. Add eggs one at a time, and beat with each addition. Add the orange puree and zest. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder) to the batter a little at a time, and mix well. Add yogurt and combine until well blended. Pour batter into prepared Bundt pan. Bake at 350° F for 50 minutes, or until done. Test with a toothpick.

A Few Helpful Hints:

  • Let your cake cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes in the pan.
  • Place your cooling rack over the top of your Bundt pan.
  • Pick-up the Bundt pan with the cooling rack, and turn it over.
  • The cake will fall out of the Bundt pan without breaking.

After the cake is completely cooled, it is time to give it a beautiful glaze. Mix up your powdered sugar and some fresh orange juice, then drizzle over the top of your Bundt cake.  If you like your glaze thicker, do not use as much juice. That’s simple, right? Garnish with orange zest and a couple twists of orange to give your finished presentation a little pop.
