Hi my readers….. today, I’m very excited to share my very first attempt on paint a cake….. Have you ever noticed the beauty of twilight…..After long hours of sun shine, (after work) he is getting home to see his love…… certainly he is excited…and exhibits different colored rays to show his enthusiasm….. I often feels that twilight is a celebration of colors in a romantic ambience…. I often talk to Anish about the beauty of dawn and the rush of sun to visit his love, whenever we are in a park or beach at that time……and he is patient enough to hear my craziness….Twilight is the journey to the new dawn…..with new energy……with new colors ….and with new excitements….
Thank Lord! for every moments and for every reasons….. This is our 6 th wedding anniversary cake. By Gods grace, it came out well, even though this was a challenging one, my first attempt and being not an artist. I used yellow, orange and red colors for painting and the rest were done with fondant.
The cake is Hershey’s chocolate cake, which I used in the second layer of Mickey mouse club house theme cake. The filling is pastry cream.
3/4 cup of good quality cocoa powder
1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 large eggs
1 cup of coffee
1 cup of butter milk
1/2 cup of oil
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 3500F and prepare two 8 inch round baking pan, lined with butter paper or parchment paper and greased with butter.
Sift all purpose flour and cocoa powder. Mix all the dry ingredients – sugar, cocoa powder, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and set aside.
Lightly beat your eggs with your wire whisk. Now mix oil, coffee, buttermilk and vanilla extract.
Put the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir well. Then increase the speed to medium and beat until everything are well blended. Scrape the sides of the bowl and beat again for a minute.
Divide the batter equally and pour into two prepared pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
We all enjoyed the wedding anniversary and the cake. Rydhi could not stop herself from first consuming the decorations (little hearts, tree, and all) and then the cake….. Thank Lord for all your gifts….. 🙂
