Zann turns 9 years old today. Have been planning to bake a cake for her before the Malacca trip. I almost thought I couldn’t bake one cos little bro was sick. Luckily still can make it. Used strawberry callubaut chocolate to bake this cake, with marshmallow deco and strawberry fillings. Took me almost a day to complete this at different stage.
It’s only a small 6″ cake just nice for all of us, including mom who came over.
The birthday girl helped me to decorate the cake. Happy Birthday to my big girl. ❤
I decided to use strawberry callubaut chocolate to bake this sponge cake. Originally was chocolate sponge cake recipe.
veg oil 50g
strawberry callubaut 100g
egg white 180g
top flour 90g
Use double boiler method to warm up the milk + veg oil.
Off heat, stir in strawberry callubaut, mix well. Add yolk bit by bit.
Stir well. Set aside.
Beat egg white till stiff peak. Add 1/3 meringue to yolk mixture. Add 1/3 flour and fold in. Then combine remaining meringue and flour (in 2 additions). Bake at 140C for 40-45mins.
