Spaghetti Cake

Platter of spaghetti cake that I made for a birthday luncheon. It was carrot cake, vanilla butter cream frosting pasta, Ferrero Rocher meatballs, doctored up strawberry preserves for the sauce & white chocolate cheese...

Carrot Cake

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 cups grated carrots


Combine sugar and oil in a large bowl, beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. In another bowl combine next dry ingredients and mix. Combine with wet ingredients and mix. Stir in grated carrot.

Pour into prepared pans (I always use Cake Release). Bake at 300°F for approximately 20 minutes, then at 325°F for about another 20 mins, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool.

I used a large oval platter and cut the cake to fit then stacked the cut pieces on top to *mound* the cake.

The buttercream recipe I used:

  • 1/2 lb Crisco
  • 1/2 lb butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 lb bag sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • A few drops of gel coloring (yellow & flesh)

I spread a thin layer of buttercream over cake with a knife and then used a ziploc bag and poked a few holes in it and squeezed it (in streams) onto the cake (the extra holes made covering the cake much quicker).

I heated up strawberry preserves, added a few various colored Jujubes, diced very small to resemble spices. Then mixed in a little buttercream to make it look more like tomato sauce & less like preserves.

I dipped the Ferrero Rocher in the preserves then put them on the cake, drizzled cooled preserves over the cake and then grated white chocolate for the Parmesan cheese.

This was the easiest spaghetti cake to make and was a huge hit at the luncheon.

Spaghetti Cake

I started out by baking a 1/2 sheet cake. I frosted and divided it into squares to look like a checkered tablecloth. I colored every other square red. I baked a couple of 9" round cakes. Then stacked and cut them to look like a bowl.

I frosted the bowl blue. Then carefully placed it on the sheet cake so it appeared to be on a table. I colored some frosting to look like spaghetti, and squirted it in a random pattern to look like noodles.

I used Ferrero Rocher candies for the meatballs. Then added strawberry jam for the sauce. Some grated white chocolate for parmesan cheese topped it off! No one could believe it was a cake!
