Awfully Chocolate CakeFebruary 15, 2008
Hee~ learn the concept of improvisation today! *clean off sweat* wanted to make awfully chocolate BANANA cake! But can’t get any bananas in the supermarket =/ and fruit stalls~ they are all either too squashy or too green >.< *sigh* Improvisation part 1: banana-less cake. The recipe calls for both non-dairy and dairy whip cream to make the mousse layer… according to information found online with the help of Mr google, dairy whip cream taste more yummy 😛 but however will not give as much volume as non-dairy whip cream, and it is harder to managed as well. *pull hair* check out supermarket, they only have dairy whip cream! Went to bakery needs shop (phoon huat) and they are all out of non-dairy whip cream =/ will only be in 3days later! *boo* Improvisation part 2: 100% dairy whip cream.
My 1st attempt making a mousse cake! *cover mouth* seriously, I’m not even sure myself how the mousse should be! Did I have the correct texture and consistency for the mousse? Geez… >.< I pray it’s edible!! And if possible delicious! *giggle* This is by far the most challenging cake i made! check out the amount of ingredients required and steps. >.< accomplishing this cake makes me feel good!! *ponder* at least it looks whole n complete in the end. 😀 Totally messed up the kitchen this morning trying to get things right~ cocoa powder, gelatine powder, cream all over the kitchen top and floor~ =X *whisper* luckily no1 at home this morning! AMEN! Else I’m bound to get it from mummy! *tired* it’s tiring to clean up the “murder” scene! Especially when u are handling chocolate and cocoa powder~ it stains the kitchen towels =/ *boo*
Sandwiched the sponge cake with a layer of mousse, top with a chocolate ganche (^^,) I’m bad at decorating! 😄 which I’m sure u can tell! And Praise God! i have a pack of sponge fingers! Which I initially bought while shopping with aishi and was planning to make tiramisu with~ :X but reinforcement is required! So tiramisu can wait! 😛 *flex* line the sponge fingers around the sides of the cake to “cover up” the uneven spreading of the ganche. *grin* now it looks better yea? I sure hope so! *cross fingers*
Sooooooooo much talking of the cake, and who is it for? 😛 for some1 special of cos! Master san! *pom pom* *cheer*
May u be blessed with Happiness, Joy, Wealth, Health and lots more…
Most importantly, everything you wished for be offered to you!
