The instruction how to make Choc-rocks dinosaur cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease two 6cm-deep, 22cm (base) round cake pans. Line bases and sides with 2 layers of baking paper.
  2. Make basic butter cake batter: Using an electric mixer with a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in flour and milk, in 3 batches, until combined. Divide batter between prepared pans. Smooth tops. Bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Stand in pans for 5 minutes. Turn, top-side up, onto wire racks lined with baking paper to cool completely.
  3. Make Buttercream: Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and milk, beating constantly until combined. Add cocoa. Beat until smooth and combined.
  4. Using a serrated knife, level tops of cakes if necessary. Cut each cake in half horizontally. Place base of 1 cake on a 40cm round cake board or serving plate. Spread with 2/3 cup buttercream. Top with another cake layer. Spread with 2/3 cup buttercream. Repeat layering, finishing with a layer of cake. Spread remaining icing over top and side of cake.
  5. Make Chocolate Drizzle: Place chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high (100%) for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Spoon chocolate mixture over top of cake, allowing it to drip down the side.
  6. Make Chocolate Crackle: Place puffed rice cereal, sugar, cocoa and coconut in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add copha and mix well. Spoon mixture over top of cake. Place dinosaurs and trees on chocolate crackle mixture.
