This Devil’s food cake really lives up to its name – not only is it devilishly chocolatey and indulgent, but it also makes a great Halloween cake with its red devil horns and tail. If not baking for Halloween, simply leave off the decorations and serve as a wonderfully rich chocolate cake for any special occasion. See method

Tip: If not decorating for Halloween, use a palette knife to swirl the ganache icing around the top and sides to create a textured pattern. You could also add chocolate curls or shavings to decorate, if you like.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines (cakes only)
Make the cakes as above, then cool completely. Wrap well in baking paper and clingfilm and freeze. In order to enjoy optimum flavour and quality, frozen items are best used within 3 months of their freezing date. For more tips on freezing and defrosting food, read our article Love Your Freezer.
