2 Cakes For Alcelyn

Little Alcelyn has 2 cakes for her 2nd birthday. I remembered last year she had a green tea cake for her 1st birthday, with train set decoration. Why greeen tea for 1 year old ? Well she's too young to maybe eat the cake, it was made for the adults actually !

This year, both of her cakes are chocolate cakes. The doll cake is filled with my light chocolate fudge & frosted with buttercream that has been tinted different shades of pink. After a few attempts of making doll cake, I'm wiser now. I used to bake in pans & bowls of various sizes & stacked them to make the skirt. Finally I picked up the courage to bake the sponge in my KA bowl !! Before I try it, I've been thinking whether my precious bowl will turn yellow after being in the oven for such a long time. Well, it didn't turn yellow but the baking time was much longer as the bowl is very deep. My girls were amazed at the cake after I unmoulded it from the bowl, they were going ohs & ahs & asked if I'm making doll cake again.

The second cake is also filled with chocolate fudge & frosted with whipped cream that has been flavoured with orange juice & rind. As for the teddy bear, the outline is piped with melted dark chocolate & whipped cream is piped to fill the body.

We could bake in the KA bowl?! You're so brave to try that :P And your oven must be really big to fit in the bowl!

Yes Elyn, I did it ! Had been hesitating for so long, but have to grease the bottom of the bowl a little. I'm using the normal built in oven, just remove the rack & place the bowl at the bottom tray.
