Georgous Cakes - part 6
This week I created 3 different cakes. Iced Lemon Loaf, Mini Chocolate Mousse Cakes and White Chocolate Butterfly Cakes.
The lemon loaf was supposed to have crystallised rose petals to decorate it but I really don't have time for that, and I don't know where I'd get rose petals in the first place - it's not really the right time of year. However the cake seems fine without them so I'm not too worried.
The Mini Chocolate Mousse Cakes were created for pudding as my parents came over for dinner. I might have cooked them for a little bit too long so instead of being mousse they were more like brownies, but still tasted great. (served with creme fraiche)
And lastly I created White Chocolate Butterfly Cakes. For someone who'd really not into decorating cakes these were way more involved than I would normally bother with. Not all of them came out this well! I think there is a little too much going on with these cakes - orange in the sponge, vanilla cream filling and then the white chocolate on top.
Have to see what 'im outdoors things.
Iced Lemon Loaf: Pretty good. A little dry but I can just add a bit more liquid next time. Lasted the week well.
Mini Chocolate Mousse Cakes: Tasty but cook less next time. 'im outdoors microwaved a spare one and had it with ice cream and was very happy.
White Chocolate Butterfly Cakes: Dreadful. Difficult to make and didn't last well. Very wet after only a couple of days. Too many flavors too.
