This Thor’s Hammer cake was surprisingly easy to make. I used a homemade Madeira cake for the hammer, which meant it was quite solid, and covered it in ready-made grey icing. The handle is made from chocolate mini rolls stuck together with melted chocolate. The hammer alone looked quite empty on the plate, so I blended up some plain biscuits and cocoa powder to make sand. It’s not perfect, but it didn’t cost much and my 6 year old was thrilled.
How to Make a Thor’s Hammer Cake
Two chocolate mini rolls
Grey ready to roll icing/fondant. I used Renshaw.
Buttercream icing or jam
Maderia cake – homemade or shop bought
Plate or cake board
Cut the Madeira cake into a rectangle. I cut diagonals off the corners too.
Place the cake on a stand, so the icing can hang freely from the cake.
Cover the cake with buttercream icing or jam.
Roll out the grey icing into a large sheet on a sheet of parchment paper.
Carefully place the icing over the cake, cut off any excess and smooth the corners.
Place the covered cake on a plate or cake board.
Position the mini rolls to look like a handle.
Melt a little chocolate and use it to stick the mini rolls together.
Blend or crush about 6 plain biscuits with a tablespoon of cocoa powder to make sand and sprinkle this around the hammer!
