Eggless Halloween Wiggly Worm Cake Recipe

Okay...I know it's a long way from Halloween yet, but it's an excuse to make disgusting-looking cakes, so...

For the cake:

85g butter
2tbsp golden syrup
1tsp vanilla extract
320g self-raising flour
100g caster sugar
25g cocoa powder
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tsp baking powder

For the Halloween topping:

1 packet chocolate icing
1 packet Oreos
1 packet wriggly worm sweets

1) Set the oven to 140oC
2) Whisk together the butter, syrup, vanilla extract and 300ml of boiling water
3) In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder
4) Mix the two bowls together and pour into one large tin or two small tins
5) Bake - 1 tin = 50mins, 2 tins = 30mins
6) Ice the top of the cake once cool - this will be the 'mud'
7) Crush the chocolate biscuit parts of the Oreos and sprinkle over the top - this will be the 'loose soil'
8) Position the worms so they look like they're writhing out of the mud
9) Explain to your toddler that they can't eat all of it after dinner
10) Explain to her the next day why cake is not suitable for breakfast
