Marble Volcano Cake (Торт "Пинчер") - is made by dipping squares of marbled cake first in spiked cherry juice, then sour cream frosting, and finally stacking it with some cherries and roasted walnut into a stunning mountain of cake. A showstopper, right here, for sure!
Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to completely cool. Cut the cake into 1-inch cubes and allow to sit on the counter for a couple of hours to dry out slightly.
Place 2.5 cups of walnuts on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated to 350F degrees oven for about 5-7 minutes or until the nuts are fragrant and golden in color. Shake the pan halfway through to promote even roasting. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Roughly chop the nuts.
Meanwhile, drain the cherries from their juice and reserve it, you should have about 1.5 cups of cherries and more than a cup of juice.
Right before assembling the cake make the Creamy Sour Cream Frosting using the link in the post and get ready to assemble the cake.
You can use a 10-inch round cake ring to help you stay in a circle. This is not necessary as most of the time I do not use any guideline.
Next, use the remainder of the walnuts and cherries to sprinkle on top. Press the cherries in, so they do not fall off.
Refrigerate the cake overnight for best flavor and results.
For CLEAN SLICES when cutting the cake: Dip a long thin knife into a cup of water, wipe it with paper towel and make the cut. Repeat each time you make a slice.
THIS MAKES A VERY LARGE CAKE (ABOUT 20 SERVINGS), HALF THE RECIPE FOR A SMALLER CAKE.
