Funday Sunday Chocolate Forest Sponge Cake Treat

Last week was a busy week as it was Mothering Sunday and my Mam’s birthday and so I made these lovely Chocolate Forest Sponge Cake Treats for her.

They are made up of a sponge cake with butter icing and layered with chocolate tuiles and then topped off with blueberries and a scattering of icing sugar.

Chocolate Doily

For my technical bake I thought I would try and work on my presentation so I had a go at making a chocolate doily.  These are a pretty way of displaying puddings or little homemade treats .

Normally you have to temper chocolate but as the doily doesn’t  need to have a shine  it’s not necessary to temper.  The doily below took a few attempts.  Its much harder to pipe chocolate than it is to draw on paper.  I obviously need to try this a few more times but I had great fun trying this out.

Hope you have a great week and I’ll be back on Sunday for my Funday SundayIMG_6894

Funday Sunday – “Tea Cup” Cakes

For this weeks “Funday Sunday” I made cupcakes that look like teacups.  It was a fun bake, made up of little sponge cakes.  Once cooled I put butter icing around the sides of the cake and then added some rolled out fondant as well as making a handle for each cup.  I then made a chocolate Ganache and put this on top of the sponges and to finish it off I sprinkled some mini marshmallows on top – Ta-dah!

Hope you had a good weekend and I’ll see you next sunday.
