No, this site is not a baking blog by any means, not yet. It’s just that, baking is my latest hobby. I hope that I’m not boring you with articles of my baking journey.
Now, I’m experimenting on my own. While as much as possible I try to strictly follow recipes, I’m now at the point where I’m getting a little more adventurous in mixing and matching cakes and icings. I figured, if the combination is a disaster, so be it. My trash bin is huge enough to accommodate an 8 inch cake LOL.
Thus, last Friday I made this cake:
The cake is German Chocolate and I made the icing out of Nutella and heavy cream with pure vanilla extract and confectioners sugar. Please don’t mind the way it’s decorated. You know that I’m just a ‘trying hard’ cake decorator. I’m trying, alright? You don’t know how hard it was for me to ice the cake and make the surface as seamless as can be. After many attempts, dipping my spatula in hot water and wiping excess icing off, I gave up and the above was the outcome.
No, this cake didn’t end up in the garbage. The whole of it was gone after two days. Need I say more?
