Tuesday, April 27, 2010

And here I am with yet an other cake....a Final Cake or Presentation Cake as my Instructor calls it.....Me n my DH (Darling Hubby) are so proud of how this cake turned out.....OMG its so cute ;)
Everyone in my class were like "Wow, thats a cute one"...

My Sweet Peas on the sides of the cake...looking cho cute

Here is the shell border along with some Swirl Flowers.....

Different angel view of my presentation roses... :)
Initially I planned to use White color for the dots...but later changed my mind
n am happy with it....

The Beautiful Rose....

I liked the Ruffled leaves more than the basic or stand-up leaves....

I used to think that making a rose with icing pretty easy coz I made roses with ceramic...
but it wasn't that easy as the icing was falling off all the time....I had to practice a lot...

This Cake is going to My friend Jaya's surprise b'day party........
I hope she doesn't see this post until thursday....

Hey all...its been a while that I have posted something on my blog...Am I busy? No I am not...but I am lazy :)
I like decorating anything and everything...When I went to India I learnt Ceramic Work (will post the pictures of my work soon)...Recently I started taking Cake Decorating classes...n I am loving it ;)

So here is the first Cake that I have decorated all by my self :)

I know I need to improve my cake frosting skills........

I used a star tip for this rainbow thingy......

A close up of the border......

I dedicated my very first decorated cake to 2 of Ajay's colleagues as they were going to new projects...

The outcome of my cake was different to the one that we actually had to make....but well I liked what I did n am very happy about it :)

Badam Ladoo


Blanched Almonds - 2 cups
Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 can 14 oz (I used fat free)
Butter - 2 or 3 tbsp


Heat a pan...dry roast almonds for 4 mins...remove from heat and cool...grind n make into a powder.

Take a microwavable glass bowl...add all the ingredients and keep in the microwave for a min...

Remove and mix well...repeat the process until it is thick and can be transferred...

Make sure u put in just for a min and remove to mix.

It took around 7 mins for me to cook in the microwave.

Now grease a plate with butter and pour the mixture on it...let it to cool for some time

Grease your hands with lil butter or use a cooking spray.

Make small ladoos out of this mixture. You might get around 30 ladoos.

You might be thinking what Blanched Almonds are....Here is how you can Blanch your Almonds

  • Place Almonds in a bowl
  • Pour boiling water to barely cover almonds
  • Let the almonds sit for 1 minute and no longer.
  • Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again
  • Pat dry and slip the skins off. (I didn't have time to peel the skin off

Note: Don't let almonds sit in hot water too long or they will lose their crispness.

Marble Cake

Friday, April 2, 2010

Self-rising Flour - 1 3/4 cups
Sugar - 1 1/4 cups
Cocoa Powder - 2 tbsp
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp (optional)
Butter - 1 stick (microwave the butter about a min and keep aside)
Milk - 1/2 cup (preferably whole milk)
Eggs - 2

Take a large mixing bowl, put in eggs and sugar, mix thoroughly using a hand mixer.

Then add flour and butter little by little to this and mix until everything is mixed thoroughly and add milk and mix well into a smooth paste.

Separate this batter into 2 equal portions and pour 1 portion into an other bowl. In this, add Cocoa Powder and mix well. Add Vanilla essence to the other portion.

Now grease (bottom and sides) an 8" cake pan with a little butter or use cooking spray.

Pour a laddle full of Vanilla batter (don't spread, it will spread by itself), on top of this pour a laddle full of Cocoa batter. Do this alternatively until all the batter is used up.

Make swirls in the batter using a spatula or a knife.

Put it in the oven for 40 mins on 350 degrees.

Note: Pre-heat the oven for about 10 mins on 200 degrees.
