Often chocolate cakes are decorated to look like realistic people, things and places and this life-like moon cake is a variation of baker David Lebovitz's recipe that showcases how to turn a homemade dessert into a mini replica of the moon.
The recipe begins by creating a flourless chocolate cake that is ideal for gluten-free diets. The recipe includes bittersweet chocolate mixed in with salt, almond extract, sugar and eggs. As the cake bakes it'll naturally create crater-like dents into the surface that perfectly replicate the texture of the moon and its surface. Once the cake is cooled, top the cake with silver Pearl Dust to give it that silverly glow and add an American flag.
