Chocolate Truffle Cake (CTC)
Few days ago, my little one completed 3! How time flies blah blah....but the amazing part is he is slow in speaking yet firm in his decisions! He was very sure of what his cake should be, ever since his sis turned 4 and got a Barbie Princess cake done by amateur me! He went on and on since November 08 .. 'Amma, Banee Khaik ..Kaatik' and stuck to it! (Amma, Barney Cake for Kartik) :D :D
This was from La Baguette store- sugar paste print of Beach Party -Barney theme.
I have loved to bake eversince I started blogging, no stories on my love for baking , piping, frosting, decorating cakes, though I have long way to go, yet many encouragements from fellow bloggers makes me attempt varieties and more! :D TKS for encouraging!
Ummmmm... coming back to, from where I digressed, any occassion to be celebrated is now B.A.K.I.N.G for me, poor 'Payasams' are now shown the door or rather made on lesser occassions! Yep..so cutting the crap, coming to the story, I did pester Meera to give me ideas, which she did, such a sweetheart, but I had no confidence of executing the carved/sculpted cakes nor did I have the right colors...so my pestering set off to Namratha of Finger Licking Food, here..chk for yourself the final comments...:D :D and settled for something within my capacity, her yummy CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE CAKE from me for my son, who enjoyed it thoroughly!
Here's a slice ..Vertical Section CTC
I was not able to get a good looking pic, had to click superfast b4 it was taken! :D Also had piped the cake with whipped cream and done the sides with chocolate gratings- fine one..not shavings.
A dense yet flavorful cake with Ganache lending a unique flavor, quite a hit amidst chocolate lovers, rightfully! Thanks Namratha, thanks Meera!
