This campfire cake is the type of dessert that you can make JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT!
Or maybe you’re throwing a camping themed party… or looking for an awesome excuse to eat chocolate. That totally works, too. 😉
The first thing you’ll need to do is make or buy a chocolate cake. The cake will serve as your “campground”.
(If you have the time, I recommend making it just for the benefits of licking the bowl/spoon/frosting spatula. It’s the little things in life, you know! Pull at the frosting with the back of a spoon to spatula to form “wavy” peaks on top.)
For the cake topper, you’ll need:
- Logs (pirouette cookies)
- Fire (printable flame)
- Embers (crushed candy)
- Arrange cookie “logs” into a pile on top of the cake. Feel free to break them, stick some of them into the cake, etc to get the look you want.
- Print & cut out the flame topper. Tape it to a wooden skewer, then get some fire on those logs!
- Crush up some red and yellow candy. I recommend butterscotch and cinnamon discs – they’re easy to find and taste great with chocolate! Sprinkle the “embers” around the fire.
And you’re done!
