Made this cake last year and it was a big hit. We have many birthdays in Oct so it was the center piece of the celebrations. I intend to do it again this year.
I would never make this again. I bake all the time and make pumpkins rolls. This was a disaster. The filling was way too much the cake broke apart. Who ever made this must have super powers to make this look like the picture unless you are Martha Stewart don't bother.
i made this cake with my nephew it was so much fun we got our hands dirty. the filling and cake both tasted great!!! the cake did buckle sadly but presentation isn't everything. whats a cake if it doesn't taste good? despite the collapse i would make this cake again.
made this in an 8x8 pan and it worked great.
My sister & I made this cake and it wasn't too difficult. It was actually fun! Couldn't find white chocolate pudding but used vanilla and it came out great. We rolled the cakes in the towels and didn't have the same problems as the other reviews. It was touch and go for a bit during the assembly but came out great, everyone loved it. Please see my picture posted above (#3). It clearly didn't come out as good as the picture or the video, but it looks ok! We already have requests for more and have decided to do a devil's food variation with white chocolate melted on top. Photo to follow...but will anyone be looking for this "Halloween" cake later?! I'll post the chocolate later. Don't be afraid to try.
The only thing good about this recipe is the filling. I should have listened to other reviews and NOT rolled one of the cakes in a towel. Slicing both cakes into 3 sections works better-they dont crack/fall apart. What a waste of my time and ingredients. Will NOT make again. A normal cake roll is just as effective as far as presentation and taste-and so much easier.
It was easy, my cakes were a little thin, I used the right size pans. I also didn't measure the 5 in. so I was a little off, but I think it add to the theme. Wish I could send a pic., but I'll make again, with a few changes.
Mine was not nearly as pretty as the pictures; it was all uneven & fell apart as I was trying to make the spiral layers. But the filling is so yummy! The recipe does make way too much filling, but I just ate it by itself it's so good!! It was a huge hit with my family, and I already have requests to make it again!! I need to find a more simple & attractive way to make it, and it will be perfect!!
My sister and I made this cake for Halloween. It didn't turn out looking as pretty as the picture, but it tasted GREAT! I will definitely be making this again. We are not experienced bakers and didn't have any of the cake crumbling issues that others had. If you're thinking about trying it you should do it! You'll be glad you did. Don't be bothered by all the negative reviews from people who didn't even bother to try!
Not for the inexperienced baker. I made this and the taste was very good but I was unable to make it look like the picture. It is very labor intensive. I learned a few things from this recipe that I can use for other desserts (like the chocolate sauce I can pout over my brownies and the cream cheese/cool whip/jell-o pudding), but I will not be making this cake again.
