Vanilla Cake with Frosting

Vanilla Cake with Frosting

Last week was my neighbor cum friend anniversary and like last year I baked a cake this year too.  Last year I did a tutti fruity cake with butter cream frosting and this year I decided to go with vanilla cake as she doesn't like chocolate. I wanted to try cream frosting and this seems to be perfect occasion for it.  I followed the sponge cake recipe from Prema blog and for the design too followed her chocolate cake recipe, her steps are quite detail n helpful and ofcourse she cleared all my doubts generously so thanks to Prema :)  


Ingredients:

For Sponge/Vanilla Cake

Plain Flour - 130 grams/ 1 Cup heaped
Egg Whites - 4
Egg Yolks -7
Granular  Sugar - 200 grams/ 1 Cup
Salt - 3 grams / a pinch
Milk - 30 ml / 2 tbsp
Oil - 30 ml / 2 tbsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp

For Cream Icing

Whipped Cream - 200ml
Icing Sugar - 130 grams / 3/4 Cup
Pink Food Color - 1/2 tsp


Method:

1. In a bowl beat egg whites and sugar until sugar dissolves and egg white form peaks.


2. Add egg yolks and beat until everything blends well.  Double boil for 2 mintues or until it reach 40-42C.


3. Add flour and mix well.  Now add vanilla essence, milk and oil and mix well to blend everything together. 


4. Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 9' pan and pour this cake batter.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top becomes golden brown.  Insert a toothpick or knife in the middle, if it's comes out clean then the cake is cooked if not bake for 5 minutes more. 

5. Let the cake cool completely on a wire rack till we prepare the icing.  


6. Beat the whipped cream and icing sugar until it form peaks.  Divide the cream into 2 parts, in one part add any color of your choice, I used pink and mix well. 



7. Once the cake is cooled cut it into 2 layers.  Do it slowly and this cake is very soft and it tends to break.  

8. Add a good amount of whipped cream on one layer and over the top well.  Remove excess cream.

9.  Now keep the second layer cake on top if it and cover the whole cake with pink color cream.  

 

10. For cake decoration you can do anything that fancy you, I just tried here basket weave  design and used pink and white color cream, so we need 2 piping bags one with pink and other with white whipped cream using wave tip.


11. Draw vertical 2-3 lines with pink color and then on top of if white horizontal lines.  

12. Pipe vertical lines and then horizontal one's that fits the horizontal lines.   Repeat this process to cover rest of the cake.  


13.  On a cake top I did rope design which is done with white cream using star nozzle, arch the pipping bag and draw a curve in 'S' shape; insert tip under the bottom curve of the "S" shape and draw a curve 'S' again.  Repeat this for the whole cake.  

14. In the center written is happy anniversary, just add some brown color with white whipped cream.    You can place some fresh fruits or flowers too. 


And this how the cake looks inside.

  3. Nice! The basket weave and rope border look really pretty! I love whipped cream frosting too! I like to add some flavourings as well to the frosting- extracts, a little lemon curd,or even liqueurs but am sure even plain it was delicious on that perfect golden cake :)
