For the final day of the easter treats, I made this golden egg. What is easter without an egg. Most traditional breads have coloured eggs placed in the braids of the breads. And they also make chocolates in egg shape. Some chocolates are made so huge and they are filled with more chocolates so that when you break the egg, the treats flow out. I just wanted to keep this simple.
Black forest cake is one of the hot selling cakes in any bakery. And even the recipe in my blog and YouTube have got a good number of views. Whenever I post cake recipes, I get so many requests for cooker cakes. In India, before OTGs came into normal day to day use, pressure cookers were the ovens for most of the housewives, including my mom. My mom used to add some fine sand in the bottom of a cooker or a cast iron pan and baked cakes in it. The sand used to maintain even heat throughout the pan and so the cake baked will turn out so good. I started pressure cooker baking only after some viewers asked me for the recipe.
Vegetarian version of the white chocolate mirror glaze has been in my to do list for long. I have even tried it so many times and failed it. So I just stopped trying. But my readers and viewers haven’t stopped asking me about it. I used to reply that I will do, but didn’t get the needed push to do it. When I went to Delhi, I met with one of Vaishali’s nieces who wanted a recipe for white chocolate glaze so that she can make it for her kid’s first birthday. I promised her that I will post a video immediately.

It has been such a long time since I made a video in m YouTube channel. Though I had this video clipping ready before a month, I couldn’t find time to edit it and upload it. And also I my blog is giving me so many problems for the past two weeks. Even now I have some problem regarding YouTube and so I couldn’t attach the video here. I will give the link to the video below so that you can check it on my channel. I am trying really hard to rectify it.

Let me start this New Year with a delicious chocolate cake. I have been trying to make swiss roll for so many days now. Making a perfect roll without any cracks is a great challenge. And I have been failing badly in it. When I saw a recipe for chocolate swiss roll, I noted that recipe and tried it on one fine day. And like all the attempts, even this failed and I was left with a bowl full of cake crumbs. I didn’t want to make cake pops again. So I searched the net for recipes to use up the cake crumbs and chanced upon a video by Bhavana. That video gave me an idea for these rolls.
This post discusses in detail how to frost a cake with Ganache Upside Down Method and also a video which shows you how to do it. When I tried my hands at fondant cakes, this method helped me create a great base cake with sharp edges, which in turn results in a neatly draped fondant cake.
December is going to be a busy month. Apart from the usual BM I do every month, I have also signed up for another event Bake-a-thon, brain child of Srivalli. This is an event which happens ever December, but this is the first for me. On all Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays we need to post a recipe which has been completely baked in oven. As I love baking, I didn’t even think twice.
Ever since I started posting videos, one recipe request has been asked frequently. How to bake cake in pressure cooker? Every one who messaged me wanted to know the technique of baking without oven. During my childhood days, my mom used either a cast iron kadai or pressure cooker to bake our birthday cakes. And she used fine sand inside them which maintains the temperature inside. In ovens whatever temperature we heat them for, it remains constant over the whole baking period. That is what gives the perfect cake.
