Exploding Cakes and Other Comforts

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

As the larder was too full and getting a bit dangerous over to the previous thread about Weird Food, this one seemed ready to launch.

We came from here:

Good move, Kyla.

Littleton, CO(Zone 5a)

The titles of your posts Kylaluaz... rotflol

Credit where it is due, it is only the collective spirit of the RMG forum expressed here. ;-) And I for one really hope to see more about the volcano cake we started inventing. Not sure how the champagne would work but I like that idea best as to how to make it explode.

One could inject red food color into it first mebbe. To simulate the lava color.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

Speaking of LAUNCH, how about a cake that launches when you light the candles?

Dahlia, you're in charge of mission control. OH. There's DH to consider, right-o.

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

ROTFL!

Firecracker cake! Yay!

Aiming it would be the trick, I reckon.

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

We had firecracker cake, this would be rocket cake.

Oxford, NS(Zone 5b)

I think that the volcano cake should have the chocolate shavings on it so that when it erupts, the bits get carried away by the "lava." We could even have a little hut made of graham wafers that gets carried away in the explosive excitement.

Carson City, NV(Zone 6b)

And tiny "trees" made from mint sprigs that get flattened by the lahar. That should be a confection "Chocolate lahar" it could have all sorts of "flood debris" like chopped nuts and toffee bits and dried fruit in it.

Oxford, NS(Zone 5b)

Nummy! I want some of that!! Especially the toffee bits.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

So far we have:
Firecracker cake (which could be renamed "Caldera cake")
Purple flood cake
Volcano cake
Geyser cake
Rocket cake

Soooo... I suppose the finale might be Hurricane cake? Monsoon cake?

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

Earthquake Cake too.

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

Tsunami cake, please. With aqua icing.

I am so glad we have a good cake keeper tracker, thanks, Picante!

We also do not yet have a Tornado cake, now that might be a challenge.

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

Probably the way you mix that cake is to throw all the ingredients through a fan.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

Snorkle!

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

Definitely the appropriate mixing method. Picante don't forget the traditional Rocky Mountain Rock Cake which does not explode but is our signature cake (or maybe just my signature cake cuz it is the only one that I make that doesn't get dippy).

Centennial, CO(Zone 5a)

"... throw all the ingredients through a fan." Or is that the way you SERVE it?

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

I vote for both, actually.

But not the same fan.

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

We should test both methods and see which works the most splendidly. In your home, not mine.

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

No, I think all these cakes are picnic cakes and meant to be served firmly out of doors.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

Methinks 'twould be most difficult to serve any of these cakes firmly.

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

Oh, I think it might be the only way . One cannot be too tentative around exploding devices, earthquakes, or floods. Decisiveness counts.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

Oh. I was being too literal. The cakes being rather lacking in firmness, I figured they would wind up in the firmament.

Dolores, CO(Zone 5b)

So the cake must be an ice cream cake, with hot fudge lava, IMHO. Ice cream cakes are firm...

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

Perhaps firmer in zone 3 than zone 5, right now.

Carson City, NV(Zone 6b)

What about a wildfire cake with hundreds of tiny candles packed together on top and a tiny figure building an illegal campfire in the middle. Then it would be okay if it had dips and hills because that's what the forest looks like anyway.

Or maybe a blizzard cake with an enormous pile of shredded coconut on top.

Dolores, CO(Zone 5b)

LOL!

Reno, NV

I'm so going to steal some of these. Love to make interesting cakes for occasions. I think my fav was a Chewbaca cake. Milk and dark chocolate frosting fur. Yum. Some of my other favs
The one ring lemon pound cake. Had the elvish inscription around the sides.
Fariy butterfly cake
Chocolate rice krispy treats layered with crushed oreo dirt and gummy worms. The only realy problem with that one was that we covered the top with something like 86 candels. By the time they were all lite there was a decent amount of wax on the dirt.

Helena, MT(Zone 4b)

A forest fire cake! How appropriate for the RM forum!

Oxford, NS(Zone 5b)

Wow Duchess, I wish I'd had you around for my birthday last weekend!

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

No kiddin Dr. Doolittle! My birthday is May 17th (HUGE hint to duchess).

St. Louis County, MO(Zone 5a)

Is it the high altitude that makes you all so funny?

Gastonia, NC(Zone 7b)

Yes. Come on over, its fun up here.

Centennial, CO(Zone 5a)

Moving here 20 years ago (from St Louis. by the way) hasn't made ME funny - must be something else.

St. Louis County, MO(Zone 5a)

My son lives near Estes Park, I'd love to live near there and make silly cakes.

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

Silly? I beg your pardon?????

St. Louis County, MO(Zone 5a)

Um, creative? Interesting? Unique?

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

You are catching on. ;-)

St. Louis County, MO(Zone 5a)

I held my breath until I was light-headed, it was suddenly very clear that they are unique.

Ennis, MT(Zone 4a)

Excellent technique!
