This ooey gooey Slime Cake is as delicious as it is fun!
I used some McCormick Pure Lime extract and McCormick Neon food color to create the coolest “slime” you have ever seen! (Don’t worry, I will show you how easy it is to make… and how delicious it is to eat!)
To make this cake you will need:
1 box dark cake mix
McCormick black food color
6-inch round cake pans (3)
chocolate buttercream recipe (below) using Special Dark Cocoa
1 package vanilla instant pudding
McCormick neon food color
McCormick pure lime extract
small offset spatula
rotating cake stand
Being by preparing your chocolate cake. (You can definitely use a homemade chocolate cake if you prefer!) Add 1 teaspoon of black food color to the batter and mix to combine.
Equally divide cake batter between three 6-inch round cake pans. Bake according to directions.
Allow cakes to cool to room temperature and then level them so that they are all the same height.
Now prepare your “slime”. This has got to be the most fun part!! When I first had the idea to create this cake I could not image how to make an edible slime. My kids actually thought of using pudding! It’s the perfect texture and consistency!
Place some of your buttercream into a pastry bag.
Set one layer of cake on cake stand or serving platter, then place that on top of your rotating cake stand.
Pipe buttercream around the edge of the cake. This is essentially creating a “wall” or a “dam” to hold in the slime pudding.
Add about 1/2 cup of slime pudding to the center and smooth out.
Place another layer of cake on top and then pipe out another ring of buttercream around the edge of the cake. Fill will approximately 1/2 cup of slime pudding.
Place final layer of cake on top. Use remaining buttercream to evenly cover the tops and sides of the cake. (You may have some frosting left over, just store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.)
Pour any remaining slime pudding over the top of the cake then chill until ready to serve. Best served within 24 hours of assembly and served chilled.
PRO TIP: For an extra awesome “drip” down the sides of the cake, add your slime pudding to a pastry bag and cut off a small portion of the tip. Then just drizzle the pudding down the side in a controlled drip. Easy peasy!
Isn’t that fun! This Slime Cake is definitely going to impress everyone who sees it!
