Happy Birthdae Chocolate Cake Recipe

Happy Birthdae Cake 

We could all use a little cake right now and I have the perfect one to share. A few years ago, a loved one surprised me with this cake for my birthday. It has become a beloved tradition and we have slowly perfected it. This year, I am super pumped to share the recipe with you all so you celebrate the boy who lived in style. I promise that this one is powerful enough to fight off any dementors you are dealing with. 

Happy Birthdae cake tradition


Betty Crocker German Chocolate Cake Mix

Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake Mix 

5.9 oz Chocolate Jello Mix

½ tablespoon baking soda

6 eggs

2 ½ cups milk 

1 cup coconut oil 

1 bag of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9 in cake pans.  Mix together chocolate mixes, pudding powder, and baking soda. Slowly mix in the wet ingredients. Lastly loosely mix in the chocolate chips. Bake 40-45 minutes or until the knife comes out dry. 

Let the cakes completely cool down before frosting! 

Process. Was chill until the new frosting recipe started melding together. USE BUTTERCREAM haha

Yes. I am mismatching my houses again. The earrings are Gryffindor Prefect Badge earrings of my own creation. You can find them here. The Ravenclaw apron is by SassyApron. )

Frosting tips: 

Things went terribly wrong this time when I piped the text. Just don’t use royal icing and you’ll be fine 😂

Hagrid’s cake was smashed and not well decorated to begin with so don’t stress too much! With a flat edge spatula spread generous amounts of frosting between the layers and around the cake itself. The goal is not to make it perfect so relax and have fun! I open my laptop with a lettering picture to copy as I pipe the phrase. This can easily be made for anyone’s birthday as a special treat. Simply replace Harry’s name with your loved ones.
