This cake is off the charts in its extravagance, but it's not as difficult to pull off as you may think. Those store-bought cookies make a big impact and all you have to is arrange them neatly around the iced cake. Pink candies are also a whimsical (and easy) garnish. That luscious coating is simply ganache made by melting chocolate with butter (for sheen), confectioner's sugar, and milk and stirring until silky smooth and shiny.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 packages cocoa powder
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • whole milk (as needed)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar
  • 1 package baking chocolate (broken into small pieces)

Directions

  1. For the cake, heat sugar and eggs until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add flour and the oil alternately.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and mix well.
  4. Gradually stir in the boiling water.
  5. Add the baking powder.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at moderate heat for about 1 hour.
  7. Let cake cool completely before frosting.
  8. For the frosting, in a small saucepan, heat a little whole milk and a teaspoon of butter until butter is melted.
  9. Add a tablespoon of powdered sugar and stir.
  10. Add the chocolate and stir until mixture is smooth. Frost cake, if desired.
