Mango Cake

Mango Cake
Summer's gone, and so are the mangoes but its effect still lingers. Taking a cue from my fav Mango fruit, I took this brave attempt at Mango Cake. With this attempt, I joined the exclusive club of Mango Cake bakers. :)

I used mango crush instead of fresh mango. After making this cake, I feel there are few areas top perfect my icing skills.

Jam Roll

I have posted earlier the Jam roll recipe, please check the link  Jam roll

Jam Roll
Jam Roll re-visited with a new recipe. I'm happy with the new recipe. I almost saved around 10 mins of time on baking. 


 Yahha...It's me - Jam Roll :)
There are different variation of this sponge cake roll. It's also know as Swiss roll . Probably it could be from the European origin of this sponge filled with jam. 

Fondant Cakes

Here's my first attempt with Fondant icing. I'm happy for succeeding in my first attempt with this Fondant cake. 

Now, I'm in an upbeat mood with this Fondant success. I'm planning to do similar attempts with Fondant icings on cakes. It will be great if you can give you suggestions, comments and tips so that I can perfect my Fondant icing skills. 

Fondant Cakes
The first basic step I did was covering cakes with rolled Fondant. After this step, I used the cutter to cut round shapes, which I pasted on to the cake.

Oo La La La Fondant Cake
This stepping stone on cake baking reminds me on my the line - One small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind. Thought a misquote, for me it was indeed a step towards a new form and a new path in the art in baking.
