Chocolate Cakes 2 ways!

Hello Everyone,

I do love a bit of cake making. I love baking up different flavours and finding the best recipes I can but once I have found an amazing recipe I can’t just leave it at that. One of my favourite parts of cupcake making is the prettying up. I love finding new ways to make cakes look extra scrummy and fun. This week I decided to make some cupcakes using my favourite chocolate buttermilk cupcake recipe. I had two different clientele in mind; my dad, for Father’s Day and the celebration of a little baby girl. I decided to make up one batch of mixture and icing but to use it two ways: Retro Party cakes and Sophisticakes.

Retro Party Cakes

These little party cakes were very fun to make. They are baked in little polka dot cases and filled with toffee sauce. I then iced a swirl of toffee frosting around the edge, a flower of chocolate fudge in the middle and then topped them with a retro jazzie, mini mallows and confetti sprinkles. Fun and Yum!

Mini Sophisticakes

I love these more elegant mini cakes. I used my fab new mini sandwich tin, poring the mixture into each hole, baking and then popping them out when baked. I then sliced them in half and iced a pattern with the two frostings, popped the top on and added a swirl of chocolate and a choccy coffee bean. Delicious!

Chocolate cakes two ways: done! Lovely.

Happy Blogging all, xxx
