Chips and Dip Cake

Buttercream DIP with Chocolate Drizzled CHIPS For Father’s Day!

When I originally made this cake, it was a treat to honour all the amazing Dads on Fathers Day. What better gift for Dad then a Chips n Dip CAKE! The salty sweet crunch of chocolate dipped potato chips, in an edible chocolate cake chip bowl. Dont forget the Italian meringue buttercream dip! This Chips n Dip Cake is a perfect treat for Fathers Day or any other day of the year!

Prepare Cake

Prepare the 8lb portion of Yos Ultimate Chocolate Cake, and divide evenly into two lined 12 round pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out completely clean. Let cool completely in pans.

Level Cakes

Remove both cakes from their pans, and level them.

Prepare Simple Syrup

Prepare the Simple Syrup and soak both cakes.

Prepare Buttercream

Prepare the Italian Meringue Buttercream, folding in red sugar, green sprinkles and chocolate sprinkles into 3 cups of buttercream. Reserve the remaining buttercream.

Fill and Layer Cakes

Spread a layer of your chip dip buttercream on of your chocolate cakes, and place the second cake on top. Chill 10 minutes.

Carve Cakes

Using a serrated knife, carve an A-line shape around the edge of the stacked chocolate cakes. Use a 10 pan at the top as a guide.

Crumb Coat and Chill

Crumb coat and chill. Once chilled, ice the cake for a final time, and chill until ready to decorate.

Roll Out Fondant

Roll out blue fondant to a 1/8 thick on a clean surface dusted with icing sugar. Add a band of blue fondant around the bottom edge (the wider part of your cake), which will later create an indent. Trim the band evenly to a 2 height.

Cover the Cake

Cover the entire cake with fondant. Add a thin strip of fondant to the bottom edge of the cake. Use a vegetable mincer to cut these strips. Flip the cake. Set aside.

Roll Out More Fondant

Add teaspoon CMC to lb fondant. Roll out the CMC fondant into a thick band that is slightly thicker along one of the long edges. Trim to 1 thickness. Wrap it around your circle cutter and cut a nice clean seam. Set aside.

Carve Dip Bowl

Use the circle cutter to mark a circle in the top of your cake, and a ruler to find the center. Start digging the bowl out of the cake with a spoon. Only go halfway down the cake.

Ice Cake

Ice a thin layer of buttercream onto the whole surface of the cake, essentially giving it another crumb coat.

Assemble Dip Bowl

Place the ring of blue fondant around the inside of your the bowl hole. Pile the bowl high with chip dip buttercream.

Dip Chips

Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 20 second increments. Dip half of the chips in chocolate and sprinkle them with coarse sugar. Drizzle the other half with chocolate using a parchment paper piping bag.

Add the Chips!

Take the remaining plain chips, and press them into the cake lightly so that they stand upright. Add the special chocolate chips.
