So last week it was my birthday, and I had a lovely day and got given lots of lovely presents, but the one thing I was missing was a birthday cake …. I know, I didn’t get to blow out candles on a cake (but I did get taken to the HARDWICK with my family and got given a suprise pudding !).
Im guessing because I’m the baker in the famiy they expected me to Bake my own birthday cake, but I didn’t until the week after my birthday…
The cake that I made was a three tiered chocolate cake :- The bottom layer – oreo, The middle layer – Chocolate chip and The top layer – Brownie and in-between the layers a butter icing with a chocolate ganache over the top layer, topped with oreos. This cake was calorie galore !
I must admit I did give most of it away to friends and family, but it still didn’t last long.
This was a fun and very delicious bake.
Hello I know it’s been a while since I posted. Life has been busy, as soon as my GcSE’s were finished I managed to come down with a horrible bug that kept me in bed for nearly a week. When I was better it was back to school and I had to catch up on my end of year exams and in-between there has been a bit of football support for Wales. I don’t really like football but the atmosphere here in Wales has been amazing and everybody has become a football fan. The good news is school now over until September and hopefully that means I have more time to do some baking.
As part of my get better plan my mam has been feeding me fresh orange juice and so I thought I would sneak a few of them to make an orange cake.
I made up a simple sponge adding orange zest and then when the cake came out of the oven I painted an orange sugar glaze over the warm sponge. The heat helped the cake to soak up the glaze which makes the cake very moist. For the icing a made a simple cream cheese and icing sugar mixture with some fresh orange juice.
The cake is lovely and there isn’t much left.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
