Tips for Preparation

Start setting the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit) on Gas Mark 4.

Prepare a 20x30cm/8x12 rectangle cake pan by greasing and lining it with baking paper.

Cream the butter and sugar with a hand mixer until light and airy. Slowly add the eggs, beating well after each addition. With the remaining egg, add the vanilla essence and, if using, the black gel food colouring.

Flour and cocoa powder should be sifted together before being added to the bowl. Using a folding motion, thoroughly incorporate the flour into the butter mixture. Spread the batter evenly on the bottom of the prepared pan.

To test doneness, touch after 30 minutes (a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake should come out clean). Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Put the cream in a small saucepan and heat until it just begins to boil; this will be the base for the chocolate frosting. Transfer to a bowl that can withstand the heat. Set aside for a few minutes to cool until lukewarm.

Using the cooling rack, transfer the cake to a big piece of parchment paper or newspaper. In the middle of the cake, pour half of the chocolate and spread it to cover the top and sides. If necessary, add additional chocolate to get a good even coat. Let it cool and harden.

Meanwhile, melt the marshmallows over low heat, stirring regularly, in a pot that has been gently greased so that it will not stick (or place in a lightly buttered heatproof bowl and microwave in 10-second bursts until melted, stirring often). Be careful not to burn or overheat the marshmallows; they will continue melting after you remove them from the flame.

First, make sure the marshmallow is not too hot to touch, and then take a little amount in your fingers and tear it apart until you have long, thin strands. Using a zigzag pattern, drape the strands all over the cake. If the marshmallow in your fingers hardens before you can get it out, wet your hands with warm water and try again. You should use the edible eyeballs in pairs and insert them into the spaces in the marshmallow web.
