Spongebob Cake

While other food bloggers hv lots to talk abt and lots of food photos to post.. I hv been slacking in that department.. Been busy and hardly have any time during day time to even go online :o(

Lately after iftar my body just gives way.. so tired and very sleepy that once hb actually caught me falling asleep while blog hopping hehehe.. anyway yesterday we had iftar in JB.. Nando's to be exact.. hb has been craving for it like forever.. so we drove in and got stuck in traffic due to heavy rain.. luckily we managed to reach there on time for iftar.. we later went to Tesco to get a few stuff before heading home.

This morning I didnt even go back to sleep after morning prayer since I had to bake Danish's birthday cake.. At first I didnt hv any intention to bake him this cake.. Sis lyn kept on reminding me to bake a small cake.. nothing fancy.. had to be triple choco caramel cake tho.. Sooo since she requested for TCCC I had to figure out a way on how to make my cake more attractive in the eye of a young boy.. the first thing i did was to go online.. figure out what kinda cake is best for him.. prepared the ganache.. then baked the cake and while waiting for it to cool off.. I prepared swiss meringue buttercream and coloured em.. took out my chilled ganache and began to whip it.. I also had to prepare the caramel and sugar syrup...







Triple Choco Caramel Cake recipe u can get fm my previous post except I doubled the cake recipe to get a bigger cake.. I didnt double the ganache recipe tho since I didnt plan to cover the whole cake with ganache..






Swiss meringue buttercream recipe I got fm here.. superb recipe and I will definately be using it again n again.. ty Wendy and Tartelette



Ingredients:
60gm egg white (about 2 large whites)
100gm sugar
170gm unsalted butter (taken out from fridge and cut into 10-12 small pieces just before you start to heat the egg whites)


Method:
1. Put the sugar and egg whites in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and whisk constantly, keeping the mixture over the heat.. about 3 minutes. The sugar should be dissolved, and the mixture will look like marshmallow cream (I used a thermometer and waited till it reaches 65C)

2. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Put the bowl into a basin of water. The water should feel cold, like tap water on a rainy day. Do not use very cold water. Beat the meringue on medium speed until it cools and forms a thick shiny meringue, about 5 minutes. (I didnt do that.. I poured the mixture straight into my stand mixer and began to whisk till thick and shiny - abt 5 mins)

3. Now add in butter, one tablespoon at a time, beating until smooth. Once all the butter is in, beat in the buttercream on medium-high speed until it is thick and very smooth, 6-10 minutes.





Note:
I doubled the recipe of buttercream for this cake and used Wilton gel colouring.. yellow, red, blue and black for buttercream.. spongebob pants is made of chocolate ganache ..

carolinerockey said...

Hi Rima,
I tried this but i think mine didn't turn out- it was watery like cake batter :(
Any tips for me? Thanks a lot...

Rima said...

Hi Caroline
Ur egg white+sugar has to be whipped till shiny and at the same time make sure ur meringue has cool down bef u add ur butter.. butter has to be chill bef u use it ok..

carolinerockey said...

Ok will try it again..hopefully it works out..
Thanks Rima..& will let you know.

I think i will add a little more sugar,i tasted the batter and felt it wasn't sweet enough for me,yeah i have a sweet tooth...hehe

Is it all right to add say another 20gm sugar but with the same amount of egg whites and butter?

oops sorry for another round of questions...

Rima said...

Shouldnt be a probs.. 20g is not much more hehe.. good luck!

sam said...

Rima said...

Sam
Hmm i remember i had to use 2 pans of the same size for ths spongebob cake cos i didnt want a big cake.. lemme check in my pantry and i will let u know later..
