Somewhere Over The Rainbow…(cheesiest title post ever)

Standard

WARNING : Colourful Entry ahead!

The moment I saw the recipe, I was literally dumbfounded.  The cake is eye-catching, can’t help but to stare at it.  Although, I’ve been excited to try it , I’ve been procrastinating it actually.  Who wouldn’t?  Imagine, you have to prepare 6 or more baking tins, 6 or more plastic containers, 6 or more gel colorings, 6 or more spoons/spatulas or whatever that can scoop all the batters.  Not an easy feat for me at least. THAT doesn’t even include the ingredients to be used. OK the list can go on further but hey, at the end of the day, all these were overcome by the satisfaction of the CAKE!

Yeah….I am talking about (what else) …THE RAINBOW CAKE!

From the last few entry,  I did mentioned about this “Whisk Kid”, she made it so wonderfully colorful!  I am challenged by it.

And so it began….

Thank God it fit into my oven, all 6 of them! 🙂

The Buttercream Frosting looking gorgeous but I find it to be too sweet! Gosh! I should have just stick to my Cream Cheese Frosting instead.

Before frosting, do remember to chill the baked batter for at least 10 mins.

 I should really get a cake stand, for now Nigella’s book will do 🙂 ….hahahaha..did I mentioned that this is how an amateur baking enthusiast frost a cake! FAIL!

Looking at the result is worth me not eating the whole day! Yup, I kinda ‘forget’ to eat my lunch AND dinner!

The sliced cake!

Yet another thing that I most hate! The washing aftermath! Arrrghhhh!!! Not 1, not 2, not 3 BUT 6times more!

Is it worth all the effort?

Well…..what say you?

Sidenote : I followed the recipe exactly but find it to be too sweet to my liking.  So try to cut down the sugar by half (hmm dunno whether it would affect the texture, any experienced baker out there please enlighten me, thanks!),  I am sure it’ll taste even better.

Easiest recipe yet the challenge of preparing it is totally worth it too!

You can find the recipe here.

Ain’t No Whisk-Kid, I am Senduk Mama!

If you’ve been following me on FB, Instagram or Twitter, you might have guessed what I did with the strawberry coulis I made the other day. Been trying to find the perfect recipe combination for it. No..I am no rocket scientist to figure this one out but simply being me who like to ‘explore’ on which ingredients worked well. Most of the time FAILED! hehehe

I am most fascinated with Martha Stewart, Nigella Lawson and most recently Kaitlin Flannery. She is known as the Whisk-Kid! She is only 20 mind you but her blog is full of awesome recipes which I find inspirational. Geee…20, what was I doing when I was that age? Wasted. Really, to think of it! And here I am struggling to have a last minute interest in baking and cooking for that matter, but hey, as they said “you are never to old to learn something”

The reason I stumbled upon (yeah I always stumbled upon something nowadays) her blog is when I was searching for the right recipe for a Rainbow Cake! blah blah blah… you should see hers, its GORGE! Anyways, as I was reading, something caught my eye, its her Meringue Cupcakes with Raspberry Curd. The word ‘cupcakes’ already made me flutter, ‘meringue’ makes me think its the easiest recipe of all (yeah I love simple simple recipes, lazy me) and of course the ‘raspberry curd’ which I do not really care much coz in my mind I was thinking of my strawberry coulis. Since I’ve decided (recently) to just specialize in RVC, why not I just create different types of toppings instead examples you can see from my FIT. (Facebook/Instagram/Twitter)

So this is how the unconventional way of rediscovering something so simple yet sinful, agree?

In other words, I combined the RVC + Meringue Cupcakes with Raspberry Curd to be …….

“Meringue Cookie Topping on RVC with Strawberry Coulis Fillings”! Phew!…need a breather there.

that strawberry coulis on the plate presenting from big to small circles are obviously copied from Masterchef programs that I’ve been obsessed about! Hah!
There you go! If you’re interested in this, email me for further enquiries on the price and everything else of course!
By the way, I am proud to inform you, although Yati’s RVC just launched early March 2012, we have so far baked 676 cuppies, a shy 24 more to go to reach 700! Come on friends, help me to achieve this goal before end of March! Thank you!
