Thanks to foodnetwork.com and Sandra Lee for this fantastic volcano cake you can make for your kids luau party. Even if your party isn’t for a birthday celebration, this cake is such a show stopper you’ll just have to include it at your luau.
This is much simpler than it looks to make as it’s ‘semi-homemade’, using two boxes of red velvet cake mix, canned frosting and purchased decorator icing.
The ‘smoke’ is a bit of dry ice in a votive candle holder at the top of the cake. Since you’ll no doubt have to buy more dry ice than you’ll need for the cake, place it around elsewhere at the party for more fun smoke (with little signs that say ‘don’t touch’).
You will need 2- 8” cake pans, 2 -10” cake pans and a 6” bundt pan. You can probably borrow any pans that you don’t already have.
Decorating this cake with all the different colored lava flows of icing should be fun to do with your child and is a good way to get them involved in the party prep.
No luau is complete without it’s volcano!
