Cakes for him.....Pandan Layered Cake & Tiramisu

It was my husband's birthday 2 days ago, and we had a great celebrations on his big day. I've made 2 different birthday cakes for "Pandan Layered Cake" for the family celebration in the morning and another "Tiramisu" to celebrate with his friends at night. Both cake were well received and they were gone on the day itself..:)

First, the Pandan Layered Cake. It was my first attempt and I had a good praise by my hubby. He loves the cake and took 2 big pieces right away. It was not that difficult as I thought though...^^

 The recipe:
2 egg yolks
60g cake flour
35g sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 pandan essence
1/2 tsp baking powder
40ml thick coconut milk
1/4 cup corn oil

2 egg whites
35g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

500g thick coconut milk
35g brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 egg
50g Hun Kwee flour
1 tsp agar agar powder

~ Cook till thicken!

~ Mix ingredients (A) together with a whisk and keep aside.
~ Beat ingredients (B) till fluffy and firm.
~ Gently fold in (B) into (A). Mix well.
~ Bake in and ungreased 7" round tin at 180'C for 25-30 minutes.
~ Sliced cake into 3 to 4 layers and topping each layer with hot frosting (C)
~ Cover the whole cake with the hot frosting (C) and sprinkle with some desiccated coconut.
~ Chilled the cake before serving.

I didn't do a good job slicing the cake properly. So you can see the thickness of each cake was uneven here.
Anyway, he didn't notice that...LOL!!

Then I was told that he'll be celebrating with his friends at night too. Without any hesitation, a Tiramisu was the most simple one to bake...hehe! So the cake was completed in 2 hours time and I'm off to the hair saloon to beautify myself for the night...hahaha!!!
If you like this Tiramisu, please refer to my older post here.
