We don't celebrate Mardi Gras, but we do have something evil to share today :) This cake took days to make for Dad's birthday and he rated it 5+ Blings!
I'm not posting the 3 page recipe, but you can email if you'd like to have it. Here's the general idea: First, you let a cup of raisins sit in dark rum overnight (hence the term "drunken"). Then you make the "Zombie Cake" with more rum, tons of chocolate, and a lot of spices. Next, you make the "Mocha Rum Mousse" with even more rum and more chocolate. After this comes the "Blackened Molasses Glaze" with black strap molasses (we added some black strap rum as well) and yes, more chocolate. Finally, you make the "Chocolate Caramel Voodoo Needles" that stick into the cake.
Now in case you haven't noticed, this cake is not for those who don't care for the flavor of rum or chocolate :) It is to die for! We made this a couple times and it is well worth the effort! It's also super rich and will last for days.
