Independence Day Tricolor Cake & Mom’s Birthday Cake
August 15th is very special to me as being an Indian & as a daughter..it’s our home country India’s Independence day…And my mom’s birthday too on the same date..!!
happy Independence day!!
so i decided to bake my first cake on this awesome day.. Was really exciting!! Please sorry me if my recipe was a mess!! referred too many youtube videos and google for perfect baking tips..thanks to all of them..
made a slice of tricolor cake and a whole single layered sponge cake, because a full tricolor ed cake won’t be consumed by us!!
and here’s my cake recipe:
- All purpose flour-2 1/4 cups
- powdered sugar-1 cup( my mom is diabetic, so made less)
- Egg-2 butter-1 cup( melted )
- baking powder-3 teaspoon
- milk-1 cup
- salt-a pinch
- Apple green color & orange red color-as shown in image
- butter-for greasing the baking dish..
- Butter / parchment paper
- Icing crumbs-1 packet( i used ready made one )
- cold water-1/2 cup
- kiwi( green and yellow)-as per needed
How to make:
1)first lets prepare the cake mixture..mix all the dry ingredients,ie flour,baking powder,salt,sugar in a large bowl with spatula..
2)now add melted butter and give a nice whisk( as my hand blender is at Qatar,i did everything with a whisker by hand)!!
3)now let’s add the milk and whisk gently..start adding the eggs one by one..whisk nicely to a smooth thick batter..
4)whisk it continuously for 5-10 mins nicely..
5)now grease the baking dish with butter and place a round cut wax paper on it again greased..
6)pour the cake mixture to it and layer it gently..now place the baking dish in preheated oven at 200 degree for 30 mins..( check it in between with a tooth pick ).If the tooth pick is coming clear, that’s the time to stop baking!!
7)now take the cake from oven and let it cool .. When it’s cool once ,remove from the dish and wax paper.. ( ohhh, it was an awesome moment to see my first successful attempt after 2-3 worst experiences)
8)now i divided the left cake mixture to three small batches..added green & red color on each of them..leave one uncolored..( first time using artificial color in my recipe post ?)
9)as its for 1 slice only ,i baked them in 3 small square dishes together without preheating the oven (because the oven is already hot) for 15-20 minutes ..
10)now lets prepare the icing.. As it ready made i just needed to whisk it for 10 mins well with cold water..
11)now lets decorate the cake.. Take the sponge cake, with the spatula or icing knife, apply icing all above the cake evenly…place kiwi or any other fruit as per wish..( i preferred kiwi because its mom’s favorite)..
12)now with an icing cone i decorated the middle portion of the cake in between the kiwi’s..??!!( hope it’s not that worse)
13)now i decorated the tricolor slices , cut to triangle slice with icing in between each layer and top..
so my here’s my cake !! I’m so happy to bake a cake at home for my mom’s birthday..i am just going crazy about baking now..looking forward to do more !!
i am being inspired a lot from my blogging friends..who bake yummy awesome cakes.. Thank you guyz..
here i am taking them to Angie’s Fiesta friday party the kiwi added more taste to each bite of the cake!!
