A quick and easy cake that if perfect for any occasion. Chocolate Vodka and Kahlua guarantee a moist and delicious Black Russian cake
I used to occasionally drink an adult beverage called a Black Russian. It’s made with Kahlua and Vodka. These babies packed a punch, and if I had more than one, I was either the life of the party or down for the count. I am a little more responsible now days, but hey, they were delicious! I have no restraint when it comes to my Black Russian Cake however!
I was inspired to make this cake after I learned how to make modeling chocolate. I wanted a special cake to decorate. And, even though it may sound a little fancy, it is quick and easy, and actually starts out using a cake mix. No one would ever know because this cake is moist and delicious.
I baked this cake in a tube pan, also known as an angel food cake pan, because I wanted a flat top for decorating. You could also use a bundt pan. I applied a thin crumb coat using buttercream frosting, thinking that my ganache would flow smoother. That step isn’t necessary. My ganache was still a bit thick so, while not perfect, it was still delicious. You could just drizzle a glaze over the top and call it done too.
Modeling Chocolate instructions will be featured later this week! The technique is a lot of fun, and I hope you will give this cake and the technique a try.
