Pampered Chef: Molten Lava

  1. I used the dcb for molten lava cake today. Is it normal for the icing to turn to liquid at the bottom? I was really surprised by this....the cake tasted yummy but I ended up scooping out the liquid and pouring it over the cake. Just wondering if I messed up or if this was normal.

    All you do, so that you don't have to scoop out frosting, is flip the cake over onto the plate and and the frosting will be all over the top! :thumbup:
    Just make sure to use a platter otherwise there will be frosting dripping over the edge!

    I know it has been posted here multiple times, but I still can't seem to find it:(
    How do you make the lava cake in the dcb? I know how to make it in the fluted pan, I just haven't tried it in the dcb. Do you leave the lid on or off? How long does it take to cook & how long does it set?

    If it's anything like the peanut butter dump cake, all you do is make the cake according to the directions and add the frosting on top. Cook for 12 minutes, top off. If you add peanut butter, it does this really cool swirly thing when you flip it over and it looks fabulous!!

  7. You put the cake mix in the DCB, add scoops of the frosting on the top and put it in the microwave (uncovered) for, I believe, 10 minutes. :D

    An alternate name is the Chocolate Volcano Cake (due to the lava like appearance of the melted frosting flowing down the sides of the cake when you do it right I'm thinking...).​
