Follow these steps to create your best cake Snickers Cake delight:
Prepare the Chocolate Cake Batter:
- Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- In a mixing bowl, combine the chocolate fudge cake mix, instant chocolate pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, water, and canola oil.
- Mix the ingredients on medium speed for approximately 2 minutes, until well combined.
- Transfer the batter evenly into two 8-inch round baking pans that are lined with parchment paper.
- Bake the cakes in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Allow the cakes to cool for about 10 minutes before carefully removing them from the pans. Let them cool completely on wire racks.
Prepare the Peanut Butter Frosting:
- Using a mixer on high speed, beat together the soft butter and creamy peanut butter for about 5 minutes, until the mixture becomes very fluffy.
- Gradually add the powdered sugar to the mixture, ensuring it’s well incorporated.
- Slowly drizzle in the heavy cream while continuing to mix.
- Add the salt and continue to beat until the frosting is smooth and velvety.
Create the Filling:
- Melt the semisweet chocolate using low heat, and whisk until it’s smooth.
- Drizzle a portion of the melted caramel and ganache over the bottom layer of the cake.
- Sprinkle half of the chopped peanuts and chopped Snickers onto the caramel and ganache layer.
- Place the second cake layer (bottom side up) on a separate plate, and frost the bottom of it.
Assemble the best Cake:
- Carefully place the frosted bottom layer onto the cake plate.
- Position the second cake layer (top side up) on top of the bottom layer, creating a delectable filling between the two layers of frosting.
Frosting and Garnishing:
- Generously frost the entire best cake with the peanut butter frosting, ensuring a smooth and even coating on the top and sides.
- Drizzle additional caramel and ganache over the top of the cake, allowing it to flow gently over the edges.
- Sprinkle the remaining chopped peanuts and chopped Snickers on top of the cake, adding a delightful crunch and flavor.
- To complete the look, pipe 6 tufts of frosting around the edges and an additional one in the center.
- Crown each tuft of frosting with a whole mini Snickers bar, creating an irresistible presentation.
Enhance Flavor and Texture:
- For the best cake results, cool the cake completely. Wrap it in foil and freeze it overnight before applying the final frosting.
- Freezing the cake makes it easier to frost and results in an exceptionally moist texture.
