THE DRIP CAKE CRAZE.

When it’s cold outside and you don’t know what to do, sometimes it is nice to get into the kitchen and cook up a storm.  Jessica and Dominic have been working periodically on their own cake creations in the kitchen ever since they were toddlers.  Recently though, the projects they are wanting to make are a lot more challenging and time-consuming.
TIME TO START
We headed to Coles armed with a list, looking for all sorts of chocolate treats. The aim today was to find all the ingredients needed to make a very delicious chocolate drip cake.
WHAT IS A DRIP CAKE?
A chocolate drip cake is a bit like a freak shake, they are definitely a bit over the top. A sometimes treat! The cake is not only iced, but piled high with decorations and extra icing literally dripping down the sides of the cake.
THE PROCESS
It is a shame you can’t taste the results. Jessica and Dominic used a base of chocolate mud cake. This was then covered with caramel buttercream. On top and dripping over the edge of the cake was dark chocolate ganache. Next Coles Dark Chocolate was melted onto wax paper and sprinkled  with coloured sprinkles. These are placed in the fridge until set, then broken into shards, which were arranged on the top of the cake with Darrel Lee Butterscotch balls and extra sprinkles and bits and pieces.
