Another method for ganaching round cakes based on the Upside Down Buttercream method.This method removes the need for a ganaching “lid” or board the same size as the baseboard – It can be extremely difficult to find two boards exactly the same size and shape, unless you cut them yourself – I’m too bone lazy to do that :) Cut cake into three even layers, flip the layer which was the top of the baked cake over and attach to a base board (the same size as the tin the cake was baked in) with g...
MODELING CHOCOLATE. That’s what has been consuming me lately. I’ve always been fascinated by it ever since I started decorating cakes for a hobby but I’ve never been brave enough to want to try making it myself until I saw Choccywoccydoodah creations on Cake Masters page. Several failed attempt later using 4 recipes I found online calling to use GOOD quality chocolate and the Bain-Marie technique, desperation consuming my will, I went through my cupboard and found sev...
I absolutely love red velvet cake and I use this recipe each time I make it. The end product produces a rich, deep red and moist, light texture. The deep red color is achieved using a combination of cocoa rouge and beet juice – it’s how I get my required daily serving of vegetable. Red Velvet Cake Ingredients1 cup unsalted butter2 tbsp water3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (I use E. Guittard’s red dutch cocoa powder – Cocoa Rouge)3 eggs1 cup buttermilk1tbsp white vi...
HOW TO MAKE AN ALL EDIBLE CASTLE CAKE The whole design is actually NOT my original. I have seen several versions of Castle Cakes online which I used as inspiration for this cake. I cannot specify one particular artist as this is not a copy of any actual cake design. As an example: I saw the carriage in a magazine – got the idea from that. The carriage is not an actually copy on the magazine and the maker of the cake was not specified. It was an ad for a fondant. So I improvised. Tow...
This is a tutorial to create a sculpted or 3D sitting dog cake like my ‘Freddie’ cake. You could adapt this to different breeds (even different animals!) and make it in a variety of sizes. I used a 14 inch board and two chocolate sponge cakes baked in 2 cup and 4 cup pyrex bowls. This isn’t a difficult cake to create but IS time consuming (it probably took me a total of 6 or 7 hours). Other ingredients/tools you would need are: buttercream to fill and cover ...
