On Saturday, my family and I celebrated my Nan and Pop's 60th Wedding Anniversary. We hosted an afternoon tea at our place, which meant I got to bake...a lot!
I decided on a three-tiered cake, and after much planning and research, I had the perfect cake in mind!
So...the baking began!
Two days prior to the party, I dedicated a whole day to baking the three cakes. One oven + three cakes = a whole lot of waiting around! I made a dark chocolate mud cake for the bottom layer, a vanilla cake for the middle and a lemon cake as the top tier.
I chose to place the mud cake on the bottom of the stack to ensure that the rest of the cake was supported. Mud cake is ultra dense, resulting in a strong base which won't crumble under any pressure.
The next day, I made the fillings and assembled the cake.
© For the mud cake, raspberry jam and white chocolate ganache were the chosen fillings.
© For the vanilla cake, I whipped up some mocha frosting and dark chocolate ganache.
I chose these as they didn't require refrigeration, as there was definitely going to be no room for a cake the size of this one!
To finish the cake off, I sprayed it with Wilton Pearl Colour Mist. This gave the cake a really special, glamorous look!
Keep an eye out for some other delicious sweet treats I made for the day in the coming weeks!
Until next time, happy baking.
