Spiders and spider webs are necessary for a spooky Halloween party. Impress your guests with a spooky dessert choice, our spider web cake!

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (gas mark 4) and grease and line 2 x 20cm round spring form baking tins with baking parchment.

  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy then add the eggs one by one beating well in between each one. Beat in the vanilla extract

  3. Carefully fold in the flour, cocoa powder and chocolate extract until just combined. Then spoon the mixture carefully between each tin and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the cakes are risen and golden brown and when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  4. Once the cakes have cooled make the ganache. Place the broken up up dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl with the cream and golden syrup and melt gently over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir to cool and thicken.

  5. When the chocolate ganache has thickened, cover the top of one cake and place your second cake on top. Pour the rest of the ganache over the cakes, ensuring you cover the sides and smooth with a palette knife.

  6. Melt the white chocolate gently over a pan of water. Spoon this into an piping bag fitted with a no: 2 nozzle, then pipe a spiral onto the cake starting from the centre. Take a cocktail stick and drag lines outwards from the centre to form a spider web. Enjoy your Halloween themed spider web cake!
