Cake Baking and Decorating- Recipe

Vanilla Cake Recipe

Yield: 3 x 6 inch deep circular cake pans or 2 x 8 inch circular pans

Ingredients:

  • ●  320g or 2 1⁄2 cups of all-purpose flour

  • ●  4 tsp of baking powder

  • ●  1⁄2 tsp of salt

  • ●  4 Eggs room temperature

  • ●  240ml or 1 cup of oil

  • ●  300g or 1 1⁄2 cup of granulated sugar

  • ●  3 tsp of vanilla extract

  • ●  300ml or 1 1⁄3 cup of milk at room temperature

    Instructions:

  1. Using the cake pan, trace the bottom onto parchment. Cut 2 parchment circles. Place circles in the pan so that it lines the bottom. Using 1 teaspoon of butter, grease the sides of the pan.

  2. Move the rack into the middle position of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt, mix together with a

    whisk and set aside.

  4. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the oil and sugar until it is well combined.

  5. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.

  6. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and milk, folding together with a spatula between each

    addition. Mix the batter until combined. Be careful not to over mix, which will lead to a tough

    dense cake.

  7. Bake the cake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Each oven at home is di erent. Use your

    oven light to check in on the cake, instead of opening and closing your oven door.

  8. Cakes are done when you test your cake with a toothpick in the center and it comes out

    clean. Let the cakes cool on the counter in their pans. Once fully cool, you can remove them from the cake pans, wrap in plastic wrap and store in the freezer until you are ready to decorate with them. Do not stack soft cakes. Remove cakes from the freezer half an hour before cutting and decorating with buttercream.

Swiss Meringue Buttercream- Use to fill and decorate your cake or to decorate cupcakes

  • ●  2 cups or 400g of granulated sugar

  • ●  4 Egg whites or 1/2 cup or 120g of Egg whites

  • ●  2 pounds or 4 cups or 908g of Butter (soft and unsalted)

  • ●  2 teaspoons of vanilla

  • ●  Pinch of salt

    Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl over a double boiler on medium to high heat, combine egg whites and sugar.

  2. Slowly whisk the mixture together until sugar begins to melt and egg white becomes frothy.

    Be careful of hot steam from the double boiler. I like to wear oven mitts while mixing.

  3. The mixture is ready when the sugar is dissolved (no gritty sugar). The mixture will also be

    much more runny from when you started the process of cooking.

  4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Starting on

    medium low, mix until mixture has cooled down.

  5. Once there's no visible steam coming from the mixture, turn the mixer to medium-high speed

    and continue mixing.

  6. The mixture will triple in volume and will become white, flu y and glossy. You can now add

    the butter.

  7. Add softened butter gradually and whip until incorporated, then add the salt and vanilla or

    the flavours of your choice.

  8. Flavour the buttercream however you like, whip in extract, melted chocolate, fruit purees or

    even Oreo crumbs, let your creativity shine!!!

Buttercream Troubleshooting

The number one problem with buttercream is splitting, if this happens try one of the following solutions.

With heat – Warm Buttercream slightly, this can be done by microwaving it of 10 second blasts whisking each time until it comes together. Alternatively, remove a tablespoon of the mixture, melt it completely in the microwave and add it back to the mixture until it comes together.

With friction – Continue to whip buttercream in a stand mixer, sometimes it can take approximately 10 minutes to come back together.

With butter – Add more room temperature butter, do this 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture comes back together.

Coloured Oreo Cheesecake Cookies- Recipe 

Yields 24 cookies

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup or 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup or 150g granulated sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons or 130g all-purpose flour
  • 10 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces
  • your choice of food colouring

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350*F degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed.
  3. Add the sugar and mix until combined. Add a few drops of food colouring and continue to mix.
  4. Add the flour in 2 portions,  mixing on low speed, just until incorporated. Fold in Oreos by hand until evenly distributed.
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough, roll them into rounds, and place them on the cookie sheet. Lightly press down on each cookie.
  7. If possible cool the cookies on the cookie tray in the fridge or freezer 10 minutes before placing them in  the oven.
  8. Place the pan in the oven to bake for 10-11 minutes, or until golden at the edges. They will still be very soft when you remove them from the oven - that's a good thing!
  9. Cool on the baking sheet for 10 full minutes before transferring to a cooling rack or plate to cool completely. Enjoy!
