Last week was a bit of a cakey weekend. Two of my friends celebrated their 23rd birthdays last Friday, so I have two cake posts to do.
This was Isy's cake. I asked her what kind she would like and she said it was up to me! So I decided to make a funfetti cake, because they make me happy. I don't usually make chocolate cakes (or chocolate anything really) because I'm not the biggest chocolate fan, but we have so much in the pantry. And yes, I'm using up my dulce du leche... so sue me! ;) This was a light and fluffy butter cake but with an intense, dark chocolate icing and just hints of caramel. I thought about making it salted caramel, but thought it might be a bit much. It was perfect the way it is!
Funfetti Butter Cake
- 250g butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups self raising flour
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
- 1/2 cup thickened cream
- 100g dark chocolate, melted and cooled
- 200 g marscapone cheese
- 1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
For some reason the top two layers were much more caramelly! Although I smeared equal amounts of chocolate marscapone icing and dulce du leche. Strange! The sprinkles were so pretty when it was cut!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! xxx gee
