to avoid dry cakes....always soak them in simple syrup. Equal parts of water and sugar, boil until the sugar is dissolved. You can use a squeeze bottle or a pastry brush to soak each layer of the cake. You can also flavor your simple syrup with anything from vanilla to almond to liquor to give your product a different flavor.

Ok, re: the last cakes I made.

They turned out ok, but I want to add some cocoa to make chocolate cake.

I tried making some fairy cakes by adding some random amount of cocoa, they tasted ok, but wernt very soft.

So, what would I need to add to make the cake a bit softer? More margerine, egg or liquid? The quantities are

6oz Flour
6oz Margerine
6oz sugar
3 Eggs
Random amount of cocoa until it tastes chocolatey.

I was a little shocked to see it has 3 cups of oil for the fat, though. This will definitely be a very special occasion recipe.
Oh yes, please send it to me. I get tired of going to the bakery to buy those slices. At 2.50 per slice, I could buy the ingredients and make my own friggen cake.

Thank you in advance.

P.S. I did want the red velvet cake for V-day, but I made a 7up cake instead. Hubby damn near ate the whole thing, so I guess he liked it .

Cool, I will send it tomorrow when I get back to work. It's still in my desk.


Made a couple of desserts today for a relative who wanted to take them to a big dinner.


chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Luckily it tastes better than it looks, it was a bit sloppy. Also made a couple of tiramisu layer cakes, I didn't get a pic but they look kinda like these.

After my daughter made me that awesome birthday cake I posted earlier in this thread, I had to return the favour for her birthday. Here's a crappy cell phone pic:



She requested something with "chocolate and cherries" so I modified a recipe I found for black forest cake. The cake itself is from the recipe. It's a dense but moist 4 layers of chocolate cake. Between the each layer I put a fairly thin coating of chocolate ganache and a layer of cherries. The sides are frosted with a stiff whipped cream, and then a thickened ganache is poured over the top and drizzled down the sides - similarly to the way she did mine, but it was so good that it was worth repeating. Then I piled cherries on top, and then a dollop of whipped cream, and then on top of that, I stacked several chocolate truffles dusted with cocoa that I made from a bit of leftover ganache. The only place I skimped on the recipe was the cherry filling - I used canned cherry pie filling, rather than make my own. Other than that, it was all from scratch. It turned out very well.

So does she! The original recipe calls for a filling made with pitted sour cherries, sugar and cornstarch. I could have done it, but I had a ton of cooking to do today, and I was trying to save time. I think it might have been better, it might have offset the sweetness of the chocolate a bit more. But it was still good. At least no one complained, lol.

My husband bakes amazing homemade pies. He makes the crust and everything But for cherry I ask him to use the canned filling because I like it better that way

Btw, also on the menu was:

-Chicken Wellington: sliced chicken breast, spinach, prosciutto and swiss cheese baked in a puff pastry
-Pork Schnitzel with a sour cream dill sauce
-Smashed Potatoes: baby potatoes, cooked with skins on and then literally smashed down and drizzled with olive oil, and then seasoned with whatever herbs you want (we used dill, chives, and plain with just salt and pepper) and then baked at a high heat till the skins get nice and crispy
-Roasted Asparagus and butternut squash
-Herb Dinner Rolls made from scratch
