When Naughty met Nice they created this Black Onyx Cake that is sweet and chocolaty with bits of bitter dark folded into the batter.
For an ultra dramatic effect, I drizzled each bundt in white chocoalte and a sea of black and silver sprinkles. So go ahead and give in to the dark side.
Our #BundtBakers hostess, Terri from Love and Confections, chose sprinkles as the theme of the month.
My initial reaction was to go full out funfetti, but after sleeping on it, I decided to go the complete opposite. I wanted something dramatic, elegant and totally unexpected.
I love funfetti just as much as the next person but for this month’s theme I wanted to revamp the general reputation sprinkles have and show that sometimes, it doesn’t always have to scream pink.
The cake itself was inspired by these cupcakes. I rarely break down and use cake mix, but when the temperatures reach 90 degrees and you have to turn on the oven, you go for the easiest, quickest method.
I started with dark chocolate cake mix then added seltzer and chopped extra dark chocolate. That’s it.
Once cooled I prepared a white chocolate drizzle then sprinkled to my heart’s delight with these beautiful black and silver sparklers.
It is a very simple and delightfully moist dessert that I hope you make soon.
