Kowabunga dudes....

Well hello there peeps..

For our current crafty challenge please pop here

And now it's time for this weeks cake...


So butter cream or ganache???

Have you tried to get a bump free cake when icing?
This was my nightmare when I started caking -  however earning how to crumb coat (dirty ice) a cake makes everything so much better!

So butter cream does work wonders in a cake but I find when its really warm it doesn't hold so well on the crumb coat and you don't get those sharp edges

But ganache - well that's a whole other ball game. My first issue with it is getting it on the cake - it tastes so good I usually have to taste control it a few times lol!! However the benefit of ganache is the super sharp edges you get....

So what do you think??

And here is this weeks cake:

For all things cakey you are in the right place


Well what a busy week it has been over here at asc for cake...

I can't show you the weekends cake as the person may see this lol.... so I will show you some cupcakes..


These are strawberry and chocolate..

so for the strawberry cupcakes I used:

3 eggs -weigh them out and use the same of sr flour, sugar and butter
I used 7 strawberries cut up into small chunks
and 2 teaspoons of strawberry sauce (ice cream sauce)

So cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy
then add the egg slowly until creamy and strawberry sauce
then add the flour and fold in the strawberries

the buttercream is made with 250g butter and 500g icing sugar and strawberry sauce!!

so scrummy...

See you again next week xx

Cake Friday - what's your favourite cake flavour?

Good morning all... I know I am a day late... sorry xx

So if you have come for this weeks challenge you need to pop here


So then what is your favourite flavour cake?

Mine is sticky toffee all the time...
or is it rhubarb and custard?
or carrot cake??
Nope I just can't do it.... I cannot pick a fave lol..

Although this weeks make has made it up there... Black forest gateaux cupcakes...

So here is my recipe..

3 eggs (I weigh them cracked and then use the same amount of butter, sugar and sr flour)
9g cocoa powder
I mix them all together and 3/4 fill the cases. Then I add 3 -4 black cherries and bake..

Once they come out of the oven I brush them with kirsch (cherry brandy) or if they are for kids with cherry juice this makes the sponge really soft and scrummy..

Then I make the buttercream
250 butter
500g icing sugar
Mix it all together and then add some cherry juice...

simples.. but soooooo yummy xx
