The Empty Tomb Cake

The Empty Tomb Cake April 7, 2012

Grease the pan and bowl *very* well, dust liberally with granulated sugar (not flour) and allow to cool completely before carefully turning them out...
Don't frost between the layers. Use a very short, sharp knife (paring knife) to carefully carve a hollow. Also pare down the corners to give it a more organic look.
I tinted a basic vanilla buttercream frosting a bit brown with some more Dutch-process cocoa...
And I decorated with chocolate rocks and the little wooden people we colored in last year. Also, there is a bit of folded white cloth for the graveclothes, neatly folded inside the empty space...
Finally I found a flat stone, washed it carefully with soap and water, and leaned it against the opening.

Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here; he is risen.

A blessed Easter to you, dear readers!
