Welcome to The Stoners Cookbook! Today, we’re diving into the world of sweet, delectable dragon cakes. If you’re looking to add a bit of an extra kick to your baking adventures, you’re in the right place. These marijuana-infused Dragon Cakes are not only a tasty treat but also a fun way to explore the world of cannabis-infused edibles.
- Box cake mix (Any flavor you like)
- Eggs (as required for the cake mix)
- Butter (to replace the oil called for in the mix)
- One can of white frosting
- Food coloring and decorating sugar (optional)
Note: Keep in mind that the strength of your weed may vary, so the quantities mentioned here are approximate. Always exercise caution and use your own judgment when measuring based on the weed you’re using.
1. Infuse the Butter:
To get started, we’ll infuse our butter with cannabis. This is where the magic happens! Take 7 grams of finely ground green goodness and mix it with the butter. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes. This process helps activate the THC in the cannabis, making it ready for incorporation into your cupcakes. Remember, the longer you simmer, the stronger the infusion will be.
2. Preheat and Mix:
While your cannabis-infused butter is simmering, preheat your oven to the temperature specified in the cake mix box. Next, follow the instructions on the box by mixing the eggs and water into the cake mix. When your cannabis-infused butter is ready, you have a choice: you can strain it or simply pour it directly into the mix. The latter option is what I usually do for an extra kick.
3. Add Some Fun Colors:
If you’re in the mood for a colorful twist, especially if you’re baking these for a party, add some food coloring to your mix. It makes the cakes even more fun! Your guests are sure to be delighted.
4. Bake Away:
Pour your cannabis-infused cake mix into a cupcake tin and pop it into the preheated oven, following the baking time recommended on the box. Once they’re done baking, you’ll have a dozen or more cannabis-infused cakes ready to share with friends or enjoy all by yourself.
5. Frosting Fun:
Once your dragon cakes have cooled down, it’s time to add the finishing touch. Grab that can of white frosting, and if you’ve used food coloring in the mix, you can keep the color theme going. I love making my signature cupcakes by frosting them with purple-tinted white cake and topping them off with black frosting. For an extra touch of pizzazz, sprinkle some hot pink sugar on top. Trust me; it’s a sight to behold!
These dragon cakes are not only delicious but also a creative way to enjoy your marijuana. Just remember, everyone’s tolerance level is different, so consume responsibly and be aware of the potential effects of edibles.
So there you have it – a unique, fun, and slightly unconventional way to enjoy cannabis. Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis connoisseur or just curious about the world of edibles, these dragon cakes are sure to leave you and your guests happily elevated. Enjoy responsibly, and happy baking!
