This was the cake I made for my daughter’s birthday this month. From the first birthday, I have been making cakes for my daughter. Though the cakes which I made earlier were not so good to look at, they were tasty. But after my interest in cake decoration, my daughter’s cakes are improving every year. Our discussion starts six months before the actual birthday and whenever Sruti sees a cake, she will want it for her birthday. And even this year it was the same. Finally she settled on chocolate overload cake. But being a blogger, I could never repeat something which is already in the blog. So I had to convince her for this design.
I used my best chocolate cake and the eggless orange cake for this project. And for frosting I used my ganache recipe. All the links are given below. Please take a look. I had the chocolate sponge ready and made the batter for the orange sponge, placed the tin in the oven and was waiting for it to bake and suddenly power went off. It is every baker’s nightmare. But the power cut happened after 30 minutes, so the cake didn’t sink in the middle. Power was restored after ten minutes. But still the cake turned out fine.
For this cake I used:
One Recipe Best Eggless Chocolate Cake (click on the name to read the recipe) baked in a 7″ pan
One recipe Eggless Orange Cake (click on the name for recipe) baked in 7″ pan
Dark Chocolate Ganache ( click on name for recipe) made with 500 gm of chocolate and 200 ml Amul cream
All these three recipes also have videos in it. Please take a look.
Dark Chocolate Glaze:
Dark Chocolate Ganache – 11/3 cup
Amul Low Fat Cream – 2 tbs
Oil – 1 tsp
Milk – 1 tbs
In a bowl mix together ganache and cream.
Microwave for 5 – 10 seconds.
Mix well until incorporated.
Add oil and mix well.
Finally add milk and mix until it reaches pouring consistency. Add more milk if necessary.
I loved the glaze I made for this cake. It was put together at that moment and I was quite skeptical about the result. But it set beautifully and looked so nice. And as for the flower, it was made with crescent shaped nozzle. Piping individual petal is quite a task but making it for my daughter’s birthday made it so fun. I loved the overall look of the cake and you should have seen my daughter’s expression. It was worth all the effort. I sent the sliced cake to her teachers and when I went for parent’s meet, they were all praises for the cake. Her class mam even wanted the recipe for the cake which I shared with her.
Chocolate and Orange are match made in heaven and this cake with both the cakes and the rich ganache tastes absolutely yum. My daughter was so happy. Click on any image to watch the video.
