This smokes cake is my kids new favourite pudding. Although its not quick – It is so easy to make, and looks really impressive. You could easily outsource the marshmallow placement to some willing helpers….but in that case buy twice as many marshmallows!
- 170g Mini marshmallows (ideally all white) – add more to allow for theft!
- Iced cake of your choice. I made a 9cm double layer chocolate fudge cake
You will also need a catering blow torch.
You can use whatever cake you wish for the base (a ginger cake would be delicious), but our kids like a classic chocolate fudge. These a great recipe here that you could follow if you don’t have your own favourite.
Cover the whole of the top and sides. We were starting to run out of marshmallows for the sides, so we just made the gaps a little bigger, to make sure we could cover the whole thing.
Break out the blow torch and start to brûlée the marshmallows. I was very nervous about letting my 10 year old loose with the blow torch, but she successfully managed not to burn herself or the house down. This was definitely Abbi’s favourite bit. She got a little enthusiastic at times, but nothing a quick blow could extinguish. Luckily this cake is just for family consumption! Serve with fresh fruit. It was a little more charred than I was going for, but still tastes delicious.
