Why I Love This Recipe

This is a delightful smooth creamy chocolate cake with a dusting of eatable glitter, colored sugar, sparkle piping gels, & silver sugar pearls on top to look like the Galaxy. Tasty and fantastic to look at & to eat.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
6 Tablespoons hot brewed coffee
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature
2 cups white sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
6 egg yolks
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon confectioners' sugar for dusting
1 cup sweetened whipped cream
6 egg whites

Shiny Chocolate Glaze
Eatable clear glitter
Colored sugar
Sparkle piping gels
Silver sugar pearls


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

Grease a 10 inch springform pan.

Place the chocolate in a metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

Stir occasionally until melted and smooth.

Stir in the hot coffee - hotter coffee will mix in better, but if the mixture suddenly hardens into a dull paste, that is okay too.

It can still be used.

Stir in the vanilla.

Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg yolks gradually, then stir in the chocolate mixture.

Mix in the flour just until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, whip egg whites with clean beaters until they can hold a stiff peak.

Fold 1/3 of the whites into the cake batter until fully incorporated, then gently fold in the rest.

Pour into the prepared pan.

Adjust the oven rack to the center position.

Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top of the cake springs back when pressed down gently.

Cool in the pan over a wire rack.

Cover the top with aluminum foil to keep the top crust of the cake from getting hardened.

When cool, store in the pan until ready to serve.

To serve, run a knife around the outside of the cake, and remove the springform ring.

Invert the cake onto a serving plate.

Make chocolate glaze, pour while still warm over cake.

Then use eatable clear glitter, colored sugar, sparkle piping gels, & silver sugar pearls to make your own Galaxy.
