(he must be very happy, at least he knows that all the fees he paid are worth for..haha!)
Okay back to the cake, because of the limited time, I just made a very simple cake for him. Not much decorations needed, and yet it taste real good. A recipe adapted from Kevin Chai's My Birthday Cake. Somehow I did some changes on the sponge here.
So what do you think?
Lemon Yoghurt Cake from Kevin Chai, with my own sponge...
250g Sponge mix
1/2tsp lemon paste
45ml lemon juice
175g Fresh cream (whipped)
30g Lemon paste
Some cocoa powder, chocolate rice (i used choc crunchy pearls) and choc curls.
~ Beat all the sponge ingredients (except oil) for 10 minutes on high speed.
~ Add in oil and mix well, then bake at 180'C for 30 mins.
~ To make yoghurt cream, stir yoghurt and lemon paste into whipped cream and mix well.
~ Slice cake into 3 or 4 layers and spread yoghurt cream on to cake and sandwich the layers.
~ Pare the edge of the cake to form a semi-circular shape.
~ Cover the whole cake with remaining cream. (I just cover the cake with fresh cream) And use a palatte knife to lift up cream to make peaks.
~ Sides with choc rice and dust with cocoa powder and decorate with some choc curls on the top.
The cake is so soft and the lemon taste was superb and so refreshing. Just simply delicious!
It might works with mango if you find lemon is too sour, or any other fruits too.
