an easy volcano cake that almost worked...

This volcano cake was one of the easiest we've made, and almost one of the most effective...;) Okay, so it looks kinds of pudding-ish. But Thomas and Andy, whose birthday it was, didn't mind!!It's super-easy. Here's how we did it:

We baked a butter cake in a pudding basin,
made some chocolate butter icing,and iced the cake.We made runny red icing,runny orange icing,and runny yellow icing;then poured them on the cake - first red,then orange and yellow.We put some dinosaurs around the sidesand stuck in some sparklers.Voila! One volcano cake!

I love love love the way you involve the kids in the making of the cakes and take photos along the way.

Not sure I'd bother with all the photos if it wasn't for the blog, Tanya, but thank you all the same! Sometimes a blog can be a handy record...

so... how did it almost work? Did something go wrong, or was it just that it didn't errupt?

Nah, I just thought it looked like an upside-down pudding! And at the party, when I said to someone, "It's an easy cake", they said, "It looks like it!". Which makes me giggle.
