The Prosecco anti gravity cake is perfect for most celebrations and has the added bonus of being easy to make too! When my husband came home from Tesco the other week with a bag of Peppermint dream popcorn, I was quite excited. I have been thinking of making a anti gravity cake with a Prosecco bottle for a while but wasn't sure how I was going to make the "bubbles" pouring from the bottle. Then I found some white chocolate popcorn and my problem was solved.
Anti gravity cakes are actually quite easy to make and you don't need to be a great baker. You can find my Minstrels anto gravity cake here. If you can bake a sponge cake then you can do it.
You will need:
8oz self raising flour
8oz caster sugar
1 tub of vanilla frosting (or make your own buttercream)
3 packets of white chocolate fingers
white chocolate coated popcorn
A piece of dowel (I used 3 cake pop sticks tied together but a wooden BBQ skewer would work well too .)
A small bottle of Processco
Start by baking the sponge cakes. Mix the flour, sugar butter and eggs together and share equally between two 23cm cake tins. Cook at 180C for 15-20 mins.
Allow to cool.
Sandwich the cakes together with jam and frosting.
Cover the cake with frosting and stick the white chocolate fingers around the sides of the cake.
Tie a piece of ribbon around the cake.
Next you need to melt some white chocolate. Dip the cake pop sticks into the chocolate and then into the middle of the cake.
Use melted chocolate to stick the popcorn around the stick. I then put one small piece of popcorn on the top of the stick which the bottle could rest on. To make the structure more stable, pour the remaining melted chocolate over the popcorn.
Allow the chocolate to harden and then rest the bottle on top. It is worth noting that if it is likely to be a hot day you are better off using a long wooden skewer which will support the whole bottle incase the chocolate melts. You can't see this from a distance and it will support the bottle better.
