This one was my Anniversary Cake. I had warned my husband against buying a readymade cake , cause he always lands up buying the monotonous Black Forest , from the local cake shop. And, even though I love the cake, I wouldnt like having just the regular one , on a special occassion like this one! Besides , occassions give me a reason to bake and for a self confessed bakeholic , thats a new challenge and a delight. Planning for the cake was done well in advance. With my pantry stocked with the necessary ingredients..Here I was Apron Tied , and armed with all my baking tools. I had ordered French Whipping cream pack from Foodesto.com , and raspberry preserve and Mascapone cheese too! Since Mascapone cheese is synonymous to Tiramisu , I wanted to break the myth , and this cake did exactly that. The best part of the cake, was the frosting I must say! I had trouble Icing my cake , and  the icing did not hold as much as my professional whipping cream would. But I kept refrigerating my icing and cake , whilst frosting. And that worked well for me. And beware, if you are planning on serving it for dessert, cause this one goes quiet heavy , I mean not the texture, but on your appetite. Its the rich full cream and cheese frosting that makes it quiet heavy. So better serve smaller portions in the beginning! The recipe calls for a basic sponge cake.So refer the links below to make one as per your preferences.  

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a bowl mix the heavy whipping cream and sugar and beat using electric beater till fluffy. Now add the mascaspone and whip until soft peaks form. Refrigerate until further use.
  2. Trim the sponge cake , till even . Cut horizontally into two equal slices.
  3. Drizzle warm sugar syrup over the base slice to moisten it. Now apply raspberry preserve or the raspberry topping generously over the cake.
  4. Spread some of the whipped cream mixture evenly over the cake. Now , place the remaining slice over this. Drizzle sugar syrup and apply preserve over it.
  5. Now ice or frost the cake generously on all sides , till its evenly covered. Refrigerate for 10 mins to let the frosting hold.
  6. Heat the readymade glaze , till just runny. Mix some of the preserve into it and whisk till smooth. Fill it in a piping bag and decorate the cake.Or fill the canned topping in the piping bag to decorate. Similarly, pipe the remaining whipped cream mi

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
