Chocolate Mint Cake
I’m participating in a cake collab where all the cakes are decorated with buttercream transfers to look like they’re wrapped with wrapping paper. To check them all out, just visit the #wrappedcakecollabpart2 hashtag on Instagram. Normally, you do this technique by tracing a wrapping paper you like, but since Izzy’s taste is more unique/goth, I had to design her wrapping paper myself. I went for a cute kawaii theme featuring her favorite animal: bats. The more stylish bats have bows, of course. Now that I think about it, this would be a good cake for Halloween too. If you like bats, you might also like my purple and black bat cake.
This recipe makes a 3-layer 6” cake (but you can also use this recipe to make a 2-layer 8” or 9” cake or 24 cupcakes).
