Chocolate cake comes in all shapes, sizes...and shades. I originally made this chocolate cake as a delicious accompaniment for the 50 Shades Of Grey movie, but these rich mini cakes drizzled in chocolate ganache would be the perfect companion to any film. Try this: prep the cakes ahead of time, and then set up a decorating station for your movie night guests!

  • If youre using cinnamon hot lips like me, brush them with a little jam. This makes them look extra glossy.

    Pouring your ganache into a measuring cup will give you more control when pouring onto your cakes. 

    Use your extra ganache as glue if your delicious toppings start to fall off.

  • Prepare your cake, and bake at 350 for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely at room temperature. 

  • Prepare your ganache and set aside.

  • Removed fully cooled cake from pan. Level your cake with a ruler and serrated knife.

  • Cut the rectangle cake into 6 equal pieces. Turn all 6 pieces over, so that the bottom of the cake is now the top. The bottom will have less nooks and crannies therefore achieving a smoother finish once the ganache is poured on top.

  • Using your shape cutters, or by hand, cut your 6 chocolate cake pieces into whichever shapes you desire.

  • Place your cakes onto a wire rack set on top of a baking tray. This will help to catch all the excess ganache, so it does not go to waste.

  • Prepare your chocolate, cookie, and candy toppings. Depending on which treats youve chosen, you may need to cut them into bite sized pieces.

  • Melt your red candy melts and pour your chocolate into a paper piping cone (no more than halfway up the cone). Cut a small hole at the tip.

  • Pour your ganache slowly over each cake. Start in the centre, and make your way to the edges. Tap the wire tray a few time to help the ganache settle. Set aside for 10-20 minutes.

  • Decorate your cakes with all of your delicious treats, and red chocolate drizzle.
