Making a sponge cake is one of the easiest things in the world, and also the funniest, if we add a little marijuana, but always keeping in mind that eating and smoking marijuana have very different effects.
Shall we make a marijuana cake?
Today, I woke up looking forward doing something special in the kitchen, and told myself: “I’m going to prepare something easy and funny” and… Is there anything better than a marijuana sponge cake?… spending very little time in the kitchen, you can enjoy after, for a while, a delicious cannabic candy. ??We recommend decarboxylate the cannabis before cooking, because although during the process of elaboration of the recipe, the marijuana can be decarboxylated, if we do it before we make sure that the decarboxylation is done correctly.

And that is precisely the secret of one of humanity’s oldest desserts, the sponge cake, or “bizcocho”, as it is called in some Spanish-speaking places, has lasted for so many years or, rather, centuries.
Yes, yes, yes! I am not stoned yet! I have said well, CENTURIES, because the first data, according to historians and curious gastronomists, the sponge cakes, which evidently were made without marijuana, date back to the tenth century BC.
The sponge cake was one of the soldiers’ staple foods, as this type of food lasted longer.
Nowadays the recipe has been simplified so much (although it is still so rich) that it is usually one of the first recipes, or maybe the first recipe that children make. So if they can do it… you and me too! So, then, What do you say? Do you wanna join us?…Well, let’s get to work!!???
The Decarboxylation Process
The first step of how to make a weed cake is preparing the weed. You’ll need to “decarb.” Decarboxylating is the process of heating marijuana so that it is optimal for use with most edibles.
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is a compound of cannabis which, when heated, produces the THC responsible for getting you high. If you eat marijuana in its raw state, you would not feel anything.
This is because THCA is non-psychoactive, and decarboxylation has not taken place. However, when you smoke weed, the heat ignites the marijuana and decarboxylates it, activating the THC, resulting in the high effect.
When you learn how to make a weed cake (or any other edible), you must first understand that for THC to infuse in food, decarboxylation must occur. Otherwise, the cannabis in your food will have no effect.
Decarbed weed is used in many baking recipes. It can be used to make wedding cakes, cupcakes, or any other desserts, such as cookies or ice cream.
Decarboxylation makes weed very potent. Although you can eat marijuana, eating a decarbed ¼ ounce of marijuana is not recommended. A small amount does a lot.
In baking, weed is often added using cannabutter or cooking oil infused with THC oil. A cannabis cake often uses cannabutter. You can use decarbed weed for this recipe, but you can also use cannabutter.
If you don’t already have some cannabutter, you can make it. If you are just starting to think about how to make a weed cake, now is a great time to start researching cannabutter recipes as well. Cannabutter is a useful kitchen staple for a variety of edibles.
To decarboxylate your weed for baking, follow this process:
- Preheat your oven to 115 degrees F.
- Grind your marijuana until it is smooth.
- Put parchment or baking paper on a baking tray.
- Pour the ground weed and spread it evenly on the tray.
- Place the baking tray in the oven and let it bake for 45 minutes while stirring it every 15 minutes.
Take care not to cook your buds at high temperatures – it can destroy the cannabinoids and terpenes.
Cannabis Products Used For Cake-Making
Cannabis-infused butter is a staple inclusion in cannabis edibles and baked treats. Cannabutter contains 130 mg of THC. Infuse it into butter, and you get 10 mg of cannabis per slice. Stronger the weed, the stronger the butter. So, add cannabis in butter sensibly. The final preparation looks like traditional butter, but it is slightly green. This is a sign that the cannabis plant has melted and ready to cook. Store the butter preparation in the freezer in an airtight container. Licensed shops are the go-to when it comes to buying cannabutter.

- Brown sugar: 1/2 cup
- Flour: 2 cups
- Chocolate: 113 gm

- Grind the weed in the grinder into small pieces to get a better consistency.
- Take a pan and put the crushed weed and butter in it. Keep stirring it after every 15 minutes for 2-3 hours. The infused butter is what will go into the weed cake.
- In a bowl, add the flour, eggs, and butter. Now add chocolate (melted), salt, and yeast.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees F for about 8-10 minutes.
- Transfer the contents of the pan into the bowl after coating it with butter. You can also use baking paper in the bowl to prevent it from sticking to the pan.
- Put the pan into the oven and bake the cake for 45 minutes to an hour.
- Use a knife tip to test the baking level of cannabis cake. Wear mittens for hand safety.
- For customers, adding organically grown CBD in the cake can increase the desired kick.
A cannabis-infused cake is not your ordinary plum cake. It can get you high, depending on the cannabis weed quantity you have put in. Make sure that the cannabis you are using is derived from trusted autoflower seeds, since they give the best yield. If it is your first time, take a small slice and wait for 2-3 hours to see the effects on your body. You can take another serving but keep in mind that cannabis can kick you in two hours. Hence, slow down while eating and serving cannabis-cake delicacy. Alternatively, you can buy CBD gummies in the UK and decorate your cake with it if you do not wish to add CBD directly into the cake batter.
Now that you know the recipe for cannabis cake call in your friends and treat them. But use cannabis quantity with care, and if you are not well aware of the dosage, consult an expert right away.
