Watch: Mortal Kombat Cake Design | Black Widow Red Velvet Cake

HBO Max's Baketopia host Rosanna Pansino and judge & cake artist Timbo Sullivan are cooking up a red velvet dragon cake fans can sink their teeth into by following a previous recipe. The cake design is the Mortal Kombat main event and takes inspiration from the original & iconic Dragon Logo and its textured Mortal Kombat 2011 reinvention.

    Mortal Kombat Cake Ingredients:
  • 2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ¼ cups sour cream
  • 5 ounces butter, unsalted
  • 2 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons red food coloring

The cake making duo amusingly discuss the quirks of the new feature film and its dragon-shaped birthmarks -- inspiration for the more game-authentic dragon logo cake. You can find out more about that by watching the red band trailer and reading MK Online's spoiler-filled review! If that's not sweet enough for you, flash back to Cakewatch 2015 and check out the deadly dessert that celebrated Mortal Kombat X!

Mortal Kombat is available now to watch in theatres and streaming in the United States until May 23rd. The movie is the most viewed HBO Max programming and once you've seen it - you can look for Baketopia! Find and discuss more topics from the movie in the Media & Merchandise forum!
