Nevertheless, I have some recipes and photos that I do want to share and intend to get on to this site...just as soon as I get the time for it.;)
Here is one cake I made for a friend's daughter to celebrate her graduation. (In Finland we normally use the term matriculation examination).
As requested the cake is a chocolate sponge/pound cake with two layers of blueberry & raspberry mousse. The cake is coated with a basic butter cream and covered with a vanilla flavoured fondant. All details are fondant as well. Because I made it for a young lady, I took the liberty to spray it with some pearl glitter!;)
Sponge/Pound cake recipe (for a 24cm round cake tin)
200g plain flour
40g dark cacao powder
1,5tsp baking powder
This sponge needs approximately 50mins in a 150degree oven. (depending on the oven in use of course) Best way is to test with a toothpick or skewer.
Blueberry & raspberry mousse
400g plain cream cheese
250ml whipping (or double) cream
6 leaves of gelatine
(0,5dl sugar, optional)
+ a splash of juice to heat up for the gelatine
I moistened the three layers of sponge with some cordial (any sweet juice or milk will do). The filled cake needs at least 6hours to set, preferably over night.
Congratulations on your graduation Anni! :)
