We've had days of gray, wet weather as we wait for a chance of snow this week, here in Seattle. Between that, and everyone asking, "What would you do just in case the world ends tomorrow?" I've decided that I would just curl up with my family for a relaxing movie night - complete with popcorn and cuddles.
This cake was made for a kiddo I have known since she was a baby, for her 7th birthday! She indeed had a movie night birthday and this cake was the perfect addition. I had so much fun making the "popcorn" out of mini marshmallows - all cut by hand, re-stuck together and hand-painted to look like the real deal. You would never guess that it is a chocolate-lovers dream on the inside: chocolate cake, stuffed with chocolate mousse and covered in rich chocolate frosting. I heard it was huge hit and was gobbled right down!
