DIY 25: Polka dot cake

Hey pixels, happy Easter!! So, obviously, I’ve made a cake!! I didn’t know what kind of cake I wanted to do. I thought in a lot of recipes. But I saw a photo of a pretty polka dot cake on Pinterest, and I realized it was a perfect idea for Easter. It’s colourful, sweet and cute. There was no recipe on the link, just a few photos, so I’ve made the cake following a recipe I have at home. Probably you remember it: the cake it’s the same as here:Β angel food cake.

I choose this one because it’s yummy and easy to make. It requires few ingredients and probably you have all of them at home right now, my happy pixels. So there is no shopping involved.

Oh, and another great new is that, although it looks like a difficult recipe, actually it isn’t. This cute dots are surprisingly easy to make. Let’s see how!! πŸ˜‰

 

Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • red gel food colorant (for the dots)

Frosting:

  • 300ml heavy cream
  • 32g instant vanilla pudding powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Decoration:

  • chocolate Easter eggs

 

Directions:

To make the cake: Preheat oven at 180ΒΊc

First, put the egg whites in a bowl. Make sure the bowl is big enough; mine wasn’t and I had to transfer the whites to a bigger one. Beat them until foamy, then add half of the sugar and the salt. Keep beating until stiff peaks form.

In two times, add the sugar and flour.

Take 1 cup of dough; put the rest in the fridge. Colour this cup and distribute in the holes of a cake pop mould. Cover the mould and cook them for 20′

Grease two small round pans. Distribute half of the red dots in every pan; cover using the remaining meringue dough. Bake about 20-25′ more

Allow the cakes to cool completely. While, make the frosting. Simply beat all the ingredients together using an electric mixer, until the cream form soft peaks.

Once the cake is cool, you can frost it. Cover the first cake with frosting; add the second cake layer and frost the top and sides of the cake.

Decorate the top of the cake using the chocolate easter eggs.
