Have always been in awe of people who can bake and decorate cakes with such finesse. You need extreme level of patience to do that..When we see all those fancy youtube videos they might look simple but once we start making them we realize how difficult it is to get a flawless output.. My Daughter’s 3rd birthday was yesterday and instead of buying readymade cakes from Dunnes or Supervalu I thought I will bake one..
If you remember that Parthiban Vadivelu comedy (இங்கு நல்ல மீன்கள் விற்கப்படும்) I started checking Rainbow cakes & slowly thought will stick to a simple three tiered cake with some Chocolate Shards & Fancy frosting and finally ended up making this small 4inch Chocolate Cake along with few cupcakes since little one loves anything with Chocolate 😬😬 Like the last minute exam preps I was trying to learn the difference between Icing, Frosting, Ganache on saturday morning before finalizing on how the finished Cake should look like😂😂
Baked with whatever ingredients that were available at home. After watching and reading many recipes online I finally decided to follow my old chocolate cupcake recipe itself that I used 6 years ago for baking my first ever bday cupcakes for Shiva..I still remember how delicious that cupcake and S absolutely enjoyed every bite of it. You can check the recipe here
I thought I will do a simple Flour Based Icing (you can check youtube) since it seemed pretty simple and also it didn’t require ridiculous amount of butter..However I was still nervous and didn’t want to ruin the cake by being over ambitious and experimenting on her special day 🤪 When S went for grocery shopping last week I had asked him to pickup one Readymade Whipped Cream (though I haven’t used them before) just to cover the cake..
Since I only have a small Springform Pan I divided my cake batter between this pan and 6-cupcake tray. Depending on the pan you will be using adjust measurements accordingly.
