You cannot test with a toothpick because this cake is supposed to be gooey. The powdered sugar mixture falls to the bottom and creates cracks when baking to create a cracked earth look hence the name Earthquake Cake. Sometimes I put a teaspoon of chocolate icing around the edge when done to make it look like dirt and rocks. You can also add whipped topping if you desire. Copyright 2014 WDRB News.
