At the meantime, I'll like to share with you this wonderful Chocolate cake. The ingredients are far too simple to believe that this cake is actually moist and tasted with rich chocolate. I've done it with 2 different types of decorations, its for a friend and a birthday boy. Here's the recipe I'll like to share with you...
1 & 1/3 cups Lukewarm water
3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 & 3/4 cup Cake flour
2 tsps Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1+3/4 cups Sugar (sugar has been reduced)
3 eggs (medium size)
~ Combine (A) and set aside.
~ Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy and add in eggs one at a time.
~ Add in (B) mixture alternately with (A) mixture. Always start and end with dry ingredients.
~ Pour into two 9" round pans and bake at 180'C for 25-30 mins.
~ Cool and sandwiched the cake with alittle frosting.
1/3 cup cocoa powder
120g double cream
1 tbsp corn oil
~ Cook all ingredients together except butter and oil over double boiler until well dissolved and well mixed.
~ Remove from fire and add in oil and butter.
~ Pour onto the baked cake and chill.
The 1st...........top with chocolate frosting and alittle melted white chocolate and deco with fresh strawberries.
2nd..decorated with some fondant wordings and a train...haha! Yeah..uts Thomas the Train but....
..its so rough! Hopefully the birthday boy won't be dissapointed with his favourite toy that moulded so so so....argh....
Btw, I'm trying to improve with the fondant and gum paste moulding, and hopefully I can attend the class soon..;)
