Let’s get started!

Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together milk and sour cream until smooth.
  4. Use a hand mixer to cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  5. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Mix in extract.
  6. Add the dry ingredients and the dairy mixture to the wet ingredients. Start with 1/3 of the dry, and half of the dairy. Do this until all ingredients are combined and then mix well.
  7. Fold in the color and then pour the batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
  8. Once the cakes have cooled , level them and then stack the larger ones together with buttercream frosting in between. Do the same for the smaller cakes.
  9. Spread a thin crumb coat of frosting over each stack of cakes.
Blood
  1. In a small sauce pot, whisk all the ingredients for raspberry blood and bring to a boil over medium low heat.

 Time to decorate! 

  1. Use a fondant rolling pin to roll out a large piece of white fondant to about 1/3 inch thick. Cover each cake stack with fondant, cutting away any excess (PICTURE at 5:04). Stack the smaller cake on top of the larger one.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut 4 slashes on the side of the cake. Rough up the slashes using a small fondant tool (Picture at 5:33). Use an eye dropper to carefully drizzle the raspberry blood inside of each slash.
  3. With the wolf template, use black fondant to cut out a wolf shape. Use a large cookie cutter to cut out a moon in gray fondant. Press various sized measuring spoons into the moon to give it some depth (PICTURE at 6:50).
  4. Arrange the moon and the wolf on top of the cake.
  5. TaDa! This Teen Wolf Cake is the perfect recipe for a slashing good time!
