Earthquake Cake

Not wanting to be late for dinner, my mom attempted to quickly assemble a cake that she’d just pulled out of the oven… a bit too soon, apparently.  While she got teased quite a bit by the rest of the family, I thought it actually looked pretty cute!

Earthquake Cake

recipe from Kate’s mom


  • 2 nine-inch cakes, just out of the oven
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • about 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • milk


  1. Make frosting by combining melted butter and powdered sugar.  Add milk until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Overturn first cake onto cake platter.  Frost the top of the first layer.
  3. Overturn the second cake on top of the first, unevenly, allowing it to break apart in several places.  Pull apart more if needed.
  4. Pour remaining frosting over cake.
