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.
Happing Birthday Mam
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 Sunday
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.
