I hope it’s not too late to post Halloween goodies, because this little loaf cake is too cute not to share! Not the best pictures because the reveal was taken at a Halloween party and we were all eager to get to the eating part.
Step 1: Bake your orange loaves. Any vanilla cake recipe (yes, even a box mix!) will do just fine with some orange food coloring added.
Step 2: Carve the pumpkin. Eat the crumbs, you won’t be needing them.
Step 3: Now, the carved pumpkin cakes go back into the loaf pans.
Step 4: Go ahead and cover them up with a chocolate cake batter. Again, any kind will work fine.
Step 5: Bake again until the chocolate is cooked through. Because the vanilla cake is covered by the chocolate, it’ll be fine to be baked again.
Step 6: Decorate. I covered the cake in a simple powdered sugar/milk glaze to cold the crushed candy corns in place and make this Halloween treat even more festive.
Step 7: Slice and bask in the “ooh’s” and “ahhh’s” during the big reveal.
Every slice has a super cute (if slightly misshapen) pumpkin hiding inside. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween! I can’t wait to try this technique with other shapes–how cute would the cake be with a hidden heart inside?
