Take Halloween to the next level with our terrifyingly good blood splatter cake. Red velvet sponge and cream cheese frosting are topped with jagged shards of ‘glass’ and a splattering of ‘blood’. Not for the faint-hearted.
Serve with these halloween cookies for a spooktacular holiday feast.
- 21.6g (13.3g saturated)
- 98g (78.1g sugars)
Freeze the un-iced sponges well wrapped in baking paper and cling film for up to 3 months. The iced cake will keep in the fridge for 3 days (remove the shards to stop them turning sticky).
A crumb coat is a thin base layer of icing/frosting that is put on, then chilled so it holds onto the crumbs and prevents them getting mixed into the final layer of icing/frosting. Adding a few drops of blue/green to the red makes it look more like blood not bright red paint…
