This recipe, The Neapolitan Christmas cake was suggested by Suja of Kitchen corner. We had three different cake recipes that we could choose from and I chose this particular cake for its very festive colors and theme
Frost top and sides of cake with cream mixture. Sprinkle cake with tinted coconut. Continue layering with white cake, remaining jam, 1/2 cup cream mixture and 1/4 cup coconut. Refrigerate cake 45 minutes or until whipped cream is firm
I baked a traditional Italian Easter dessert, Pasteria also known as the Ricotta Cake. Since I was baking the cake for just the two of the three of us, Mr MN, baby and me, initially I scaled down the recipe to one-third
No cake would be more apt for MY celebration than yema cake. Yema cake was named after the sweet. It is a recent trend but it actually is almost the same as an old fashioned swiss roll called brazo dela reina (meaning the queen's arm, the same as brazo de mercedes but has a swiss roll instead of meringue for the cake base)
I finally made puto (steamed cake) and I nailed it. My previous two trials were both big disappointments and my third steamed rice cake experiment was better but I forgot to sift the batter before steaming that the resulting puto has gritty "uncooked" rice in it
I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'
