Two round single layer 8″ and 10″ cake pans form the base of the cake with a 7″ bundt cake pan for the top cake. Frosted with dark chocolate frosting with red and yellow thinned frosting for the lava flow. A small votive cup is placed inside the top cake center opening to hold pieces of dry ice. Pour warm water over the dry ice right before serving guests to create the smoke effect.
