  • 3 teáspoons báking powder
  • 1/2 teáspoon fine sált
  • 125 g (41/2 oz/1/2 cup) unsálted butter softened
  • 2 lárge eggs
  • 375 ml (12½ fl oz/11/2 cups) full-creám (whole) milk
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz/1/2 cup) vegetáble oil
  • 2 táblespoons Greek yoghurt (or sour creám)
  • 1 teáspoon vánillá extráct or vánillá beán páste
  • 10 drops pink food gel
  • 2 tsp stráwberry flávouring
  • 1 cup funfetti sprinkles
  • Ánimál crácker truffles
  • 360g white chocoláte melted
  • 360g pink cándy melts melted
  • 1 cup ráinbow cáviár sprinkles
  • Decorátions
  • Ráinbow cáviár sprinkles
  • White chocoláte drizzle
  • 100g white chocoláte
  • 50ml whipping/thickened creám
  • Frosting
  • To fill crumb coát ánd decoráte this 6 láyered 8” cáke you’ll need 2.5 bátches of my chocoláte Swiss meringue buttercreám frosting.
  • 1 tsp stráwberry flávouring
  • 4 drops pink food gel

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Frosting
  2. Split the frosting into two bowls. Colour one using pink food gel ánd stráwberry flávouring leáve the other one white.
  3. Cáke
  4. Pleáse note: to máke the 6 láyered cáke in this recipe + the cáke pops on top of the cáke you’ll need to máke 3 bátches of vánillá cáke. Áll other recipes ánd meásurements áre enough to put the cáke together ánd decoráte it.
  5. Preheát á fán-forced oven to 140C (280F) or 160C (320F) for á conventionál oven. Spráy three 8” cáke tins with oil spráy ánd line the bottom with báking páper. Spráy ánd line á rectángulár báking tráy with oil spráy ánd báking páper. Set áside
  6. Ádd the flour sugár báking powder ánd sált to á lárge mixing bowl ánd mix together using á hánd mixer until well combined.
  7. Next ádd the softened butter ánd mix on low speed until mixture reáches á crumbly sánd like texture.
  8. Ádd the eggs milk oil stráwberry flávouring pink food gel Greek yogurt ánd vánillá extráct. Mix on low speed until no dry ingredients áre showing. Scrápe down the bowl ánd mix for ánother 20 seconds.
  9. Ádd 1/3 of the bátter into the báking tráy. Split the remáining bátter ámongst the three 8” cáke tins. I find using án ice creám scoop to help me do this mákes it eásy to distribute the bátter evenly so thát everything bákes át the sáme time. Ádd funfetti sprinkles on top ánd mix into the bátter using á spoon.
  10. Báke áll of the cákes for 50-60 min or until á toothpick inserted comes out cleán. If the pick comes out with wet bátter báke for á further 10 min át á time until fully báked. Állow the cákes to cool to room temperáture inside the cáke tins ánd then chill them in the fridge overnight. Chilling your cákes overnight mákes them eásier to trim ánd decoráte. So I báke my cákes the dáy before I decoráte them.
  11. Cáke pops
  12. Crumble the sheet cáke into á lárge mixing bowl. The finer the crumbs the better. Ádd ábout 1 cup of frosting into the bowl ánd use á wooden spoon to mix until well combined.
  13. To máke the cáke pops perfectly round you’ll need á round sphere mold. I used á 1-inch silicone hálf sphere mold with 15 cávities. Fill the mold with the cáke pop mixture. Once filled pláce in the freezer to chill for 20 minutes.
  14. Once chilled reálly well pláce á cáke pop stick into one hálf of the cáke pops. You’ll be máking two different coloured cáke pops. Pink ones ánd white ones. For the white cáke pops dip the cáke pop hálves in white chocoláte. For the pink ones use pink chocoláte.
  15. Állow excess chocoláte to drip off before ádding ánother cáke pop hálf on top using the melted chocoláte ás glue.
  16. Pláce the glued together cáke pops onto á báking tráy ánd chill in the fridge for 20 minutes. You’ll need 8 pink coáted cáke ánd 8 white chocoláte coáted cáke pops.
  17. Once chilled coát the cáke pops in their ássigned chocoláte ánd sprinkle with ráinbow cáviár sprinkles. Once completed pláce on á báking tráy lined with báking páper ánd set áside in the fridge to chill until reády to use.
  18. To fill ánd crumb coát cáke
  19. To trim your chilled cákes use á cáke leveller or lárge serráted knife to cárefully trim the crust off the top of eách cáke before you trim eách cáke in hálf. You’ll end up with 6 láyers of cáke.
  20. To crumb coát your cáke ádd á dáb of frosting onto án 8” cáke boárd or flát serving pláte. Use á smáll offset spátulá to spreád the frosting áround before ádding the first cáke láyer. Gently press down the centre of the cáke láyer to máke sure it’s stuck to the frosting underneáth.
  21. Ádd white frosting to á piping bág ánd frost á ring áround the top of the cáke. Fill the centre with more frosting. Use your smáll offset spátulá to smoothen out the frosting before you ádd the next láyer of cáke. Repeát with the remáining láyers.
  22. Ádd more frosting áround ánd top ánd sides of the cáke. Use the smáll spátulá to smoothen out the top ánd sides of the cáke táking cáre to fill in ány gáps in between eách láyer of cáke.
  23. Use á cáke scráper (otherwise known ás á bench scráper) to smoothen out the frosting on the sides ánd top. Get it ás neát ás you cán. This should just be á neát thin láyer of frosting which is áimed át trápping ány cáke crumbs so thát rándom bits of cáke crumbs don’t show up on the finál láyer of frosting. Chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  24. White chocoláte drizzle
  25. Ádd the white chocoláte ánd creám into á lárge microwáve sáfe bowl. Microwáve for 20 seconds át á time mixing eách time until smooth.
  26. Use á smáll offset spátulá to smoothen out the top of the cáke. Don’t worry ábout getting it perfect becáuse we’re going to come báck ánd smoothen it out properly.
  27. Use the cáke scráper to smoothen out the sides of the cáke.
  28. Ádd sprinkles to the cáke by beginning át the bottom of the cáke ánd ádding less ás you go up. This will help give you á sprinkles ombré effect.
  29. Drizzle the top of the cáke with the white chocoláte drizzle.
  30. To prepáre the swirls of frosting thát go on top of the cáke láy out á lárge piece of plástic wráp on your workbench. Ádd white frosting to á piping bág ánd pink frosting to ánother bág. Pipe lines of frosting on the plástic sheet álternáting between eách colour. Wráp the frosting up into á log ánd twist eách end of the log. Snip one end off using scissors. Pláce into á piping bág fitted with án open stár tip ánd pipe swirls of frosting on top of the cáke.
  31. Finish the cáke off by ádding the cáke bálls on top. If your swirl frosting is too soft to support the cáke bálls which cán be á bit heávy pláce it in the fridge for 30 minutes before plácing on top of the
  32. cáke.
