My husband received a birthday invitation from one of his good friend for his daughter, he checked with me whether can I make her a cake, of course I won't say no to him since he rarely ask for it.
The request for the cake : chocolate cake base, prefer pink in color and 1.5 to 2 kg cake.
Wendy, I know you are going to say OREO AGAIN? Hahaha.... I just love to use oreo cookies in my bake :).

Recipe for chocolate butter cream adapted from the flower shaped cake that I have made previously.
Chocolate Butter Cream :450g butter (soften)
200g melted chocolate
3 packet oreo cookies - crushed
Beat butter and icing sugar till light. Then pour in melted chocolate and mix till evenly mixed and pour in crushed oreo cookies.
Frosting :250g whipping cream
some pink coloring
Beat whipping cream and pink coloring until stiff.
1. Slice cake into 3 and apply chocolate butter cream onto each layer.
2. Frost the cake with pink whipping cream.
3. Decorate the cake as your desire.
The cake is soft, fine and spongy and the chocolate butter cream sweetness is just nice, tasted greatly with oreo cookies. This cake had received great review from the guests, most of them given me an impressive look when the host announced I am the cake maker. I felt shy but at the same time, proud and satisfaction heeheehee...
Jess, this is lovely! I don't think I can ever master a fully frosted cake like this one. The little girl will be tickled pink, I am sure!ReplyDelete

I'm impressed! The pink is so sweet ;-))ReplyDelete

Take every opportunity to practise.
We can't eat up every cake we bake at times, hahaha! So, it's nice to bake for others.
WOW Jess! This cake looks so lovely with the pinkish color. Good Job!ReplyDelete
Lovely pink! You are so good and patient in piping the stars! Need to ask you what kind of tip do you use for the stars. Intend to get one to practise. Hehe!ReplyDelete
Shirley, you are too humble, I am sure you can do it and even better than me!ReplyDelete
Thanks Somewhere in Singapore.
Thanks Hearty Bakes, I love it as well :).
Edith, the cake is about 5cm before frosting, after adding the butter cream and frosting, the cake was about 9-10cm. I dun think it took me an hr or more to bake this cake, the cake still soft and fluffy, very nice.
Bee Bee, I am sure you can come out something better than me, I have no doubt at all at your baking and frosting skill, you are good as always!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sweetylicious. Now pink bcome of favourite eversince I gave birth to my gal heeheehee...

Thanks Admin. Do give it a try and let me know the result. I used Kwong Cheong Thye golden syrup, the original recipe using glucose.
鲸鱼蓝蓝蓝, thank you.ReplyDelete
Thanks ZY. I like this buttercream too.
Lena, those are marsmallow.ReplyDelete
Oh yes Wendy, I also take baking birthday cakes as practise but sometimes no mood, can come out really ugly or simple cake heeheehee..
SSB, I am not good at pipping leh, sometimes can come out nicer patterns sometimes not :(. I used the metal tip, my friend bought in a packet form from KL, there are think 5 tip inside. So I dunno what is the no. of the tip but I can take pic and email you.
So beautiful, and it looks delicious!ReplyDelete
Ok, u email me the pic, thanks a lot! :)ReplyDelete
Wow....what a beautiful birthday cake! I wish I know how to make like that, especially the icing. I have to learn how to pipe icing. I'm sure the birthday girl must be all joy :)ReplyDelete
The cake looks so beautiful! I like your idea of adding oreo cookies in the buttercream, thks for sharing ^_^ReplyDelete
wow, wow ... the cake is so pretty. The birthday girl is so lucky and I am sure is very happy too to have this as her birthday cake.ReplyDelete
Gosh, what a lovely cake you baked for that lucky girl. Very nicely piped icing!ReplyDelete
Jess, nothing wrong with using Oreos over and over again in your bakes. They are undeniably good! LOL!ReplyDelete
Very pinkish cake I've gotta say though. Happy V-Day to you!
It is so beautiful :) Must be a lot of work to "pipe" the topping.ReplyDelete
Oreo is never too much for me too... This cake is so pretty in pink. You are very skillful in your pipping!ReplyDelete
Wow Jess, This is such a colorful cake. Great job such hard work!ReplyDelete
so pretty in pink!ReplyDelete
Delicious! Wow, the piping looks like a ton of work!ReplyDelete
Wow, what a beautiful cake, so nicely decorated...and love the chocolate inside :-)ReplyDelete
I am in awe. The top of your cake looks like it was crocheted. You really are amazing. I hope you have a wonderful evening. Blessings...MaryReplyDelete
thanks Cookie Sleuth.ReplyDelete
Thanks MaryMoh. Mary, if I can do it so can you, just go purchase some pipping tips and bag, start practising, this was what I did too :).
Thanks Yummy Koh.ReplyDelete
I agree with you Pei Lin, I cant get tire of using oreo heeheehee...
Thanks tigerfish. Yes a lot of pipe work to come out the topping but good to cover all the flaw :).ReplyDelete
Me too Zoe, I will never get tire of oreo on bakes. I am still learning on pipping, still long way for me.
Thanks Little Corner of Mine. True that the pipping seem need a lot of effort but is definitely worth it heeheehee...
this is one perfect & beautiful cake indeed!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad I found this blog! Your cakes are so beautiful, very talented baker ;)ReplyDelete
Who would dare eat this masterpiece? I can’t stop staring at it! Thank you for the recipe!ReplyDelete
