Scary Naked Carrot Cake

    Scary Cakes Welcome back Dear KokiDoo Friends,

october is knocking at our door. Yes, it is autumn and Halloween is approacing. Hence, KokiDoo tried to let Halloween inspire the next cake. So, we are glad to introduce our “Scary Naked Carrot Cake”. This is a 3 layers cake with delicious creme cheese frosting in between them and is topped by scary meringue ghosts. You can also serve your great Halloween naked carrot cake together with meringues

As I mentioned before I love Halloween and I usually try to create a dark atmosphere in the house with low lights, preferably candles, decorations and a dinner inspired by the colours and flavours of Halloween. For example, the orange of the pumpkins, the white of the ghosts, the red of the blood, the black of the night may be of some inspiration for my dinner.

HalloweenI remember that 2 years ago, we had a party and we put some decorations on the walls, mirrors and tables like fake spiders and nets. It was very nice party indeed: everyone was dressed with a scary costume. I was the Queen of Hearts of Alice in Wonderland, while Matteo was a vampire. We had some friends dressed like witches or monsters. I remember there was also a mummy and some other friends had fake severe injuries. There was also a guy dressed totally in blue, even the face and another one dressed like Super Mario Bros.

Ghost CakeYou could try to personalize Your party suggesting a theme for the costumes. Let us know which was and how did it go!

Procedure

    For the Cake:

  • Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
  • For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and whip until smooth and creamy. (If the frosting is too soft you can place it in the fridge for some minutes before using it on the cake).
  • Assembly:
  • Cut the cake in 3 layers and put the first layer on Your Best serving plate.
  • Put 1/3 of the frosting on top of it and lay the second layer over it.
  • Put another third of the frosting and cover with last layer of the cake.
  • Put the last part of the frosting on top.
  • Note: You can do the same cake with only 2 layers if You think that the cake will be too sweet (or if You have already eaten most of the frosting :P )
  • Decoration:
  • Beat egg whites and lime juice until soft peaks form.
  • Add the sugar little at a time while still beating and beat until stiff peaks form and the sugar is dissolved.
  • Pipe on a baking sheet, squeeze it in the oven and bake at 100°C for an hour.
  • Turn off the oven and let the meringues stay in the oven for another hour.
  • Melt the chocolate and make eyes and mouths of the ghosts helping yourself with a tiny stick (ex. Tester or toothpick).
  • The meringues are ready to be placed on Your delicious Halloween Cake.

Notes

1) You can do the same cake with only 2 layers if You think that the cake will be too sweet. 2) If You want, You can use food colours to make meringues different and scarier.
