Emoji pile of poop cake!

I was asked if I could make and emoji poop cake for a 12 year old birthday who was into this particular emoji. Only too pleased to oblige, then got to thinking of the best way to do it to make it look “real”! This is a 3 tier chocolate cake with an off cut on top, covered in chocolate buttercream and chocolate fondant icing.

Chocolate Chilli Strawberry Vanilla Cakes

How about these cakes for a difference, using some home grown produce. Our first pick of strawberries and using some of our endless chilli supplies! The bottom layer of the cake is chocolate and chilli, with a vanilla & fresh strawberry sponge on top and decorated with fresh strawberry butter cream on top.

I hadn’t used fresh strawberries in a cake before, but it does work. I have used uncooked ones and also cooked ones (boiled with some sugar and pureed) to see if there is a difference. To be honest I don’t think there is much of a difference, the one thing I make sure of is to use fresh strawberries at room temperature rather than straight out the fridge, as if they are too cold it curdles the cake mixture. I just crush them with a masher or puree them with a hand blender. I also put aside some of the juice if I am just drizzling some icing to go on top, so it gives it a nice pink strawberry flavour finish.

Guinness Chocolate Fudge Cake

This has been a popular cake on the last couple of markets and is just in time for St. Patricks Day!

Guinness Chocolate Fudge Cake

Guinness Chocolate Fudge Cake

Guinness Chocolate Fudge Cake

You will need:
250g butter
200g dark brown sugar
70g good quality cocoa powder
250ml Guinness
2 eggs
140g Greek yoghurt
200g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
70g fudge pieces
75g White chocolate to decorate

 

Method:
This recipe will make 12 muffin sized cakes or one 23 inch cake. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 or 160C for fan oven. Lightly grease and line a 23 inch cake tin, or a 12 slot muffin tin.
Place the butter, sugar and cocoa powder in a large pan and heat on a low heat until all the butter and sugar has melted, stirring to make sure it all mixes in. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the Guinness. Whisk or stir in the Greek yoghurt to the Guinness mix and then stir the eggs until it is all mixed together. Gently stir in the flour, baking powder and fudge pieces. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin or cake cases and bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes for small cakes or 25 – 40 minutes for a large cake. Leave to cool and remove from the tin. To decorate melt the chocolate and drizzle over the cake or cakes. Leave to set before enjoying. Alternatively the cake is delicious served warmed with cream or some Greek yoghurt.

Carrot & Blood Orange Cakes

Another seasonal cake using up a vegetable that’s lurking at the bottom of the fridge and put together with some seasonal blood oranges. Carrot and blood orange, deliciously moist with a fruity citrus flavour. The icing drizzled on top is made with the blood orange juice, so it gives it a natural but subtle pink colour. While they are in season, the blood oranges are a good fruit to use to go with carrot, but this would go just as well with any orange or even limes for a sharper citrus flavour. Recipe to follow!
