The other day, I was telling one of my best friend that I want to bake a cake for my boyfriend.
She suggested, ferrero rocher cupcakes.
But I told her, I would prefer a cake. Perhaps, we could just follow the ubersuperbakes‘ recipe,
but instead baking cupcakes, we will bake a cake.
we both thought no harm giving it a try.
so yea, this is CHUAHKEHUI.
a million thanks for lending me your kitchen and guiding me through the whole process.
Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes
as adapted from the ubersuperbakes.
For the cakes:
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup Nutella
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp instant coffee powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp castor sugar
For the Topping:
8oz dark chocolate
2/3 cup whipping cream.
1/2 cup nuts
this is enough for 2 heart shaped cakes. :)
This is the end product after mixing everything together.
we were basically to busy baking and forgotten to snap photos of it. I am sorry for that.
however. click here and you will find a full guide of how to bake it.
It’s pretty simple, just make sure you follow it steps by steps.
Kehui & I didn’t, and causes a lil havoc in the kitchen. as in, we almost causes an explosion, FML.
Pre-heat oven to 180C.
we use 40 mins to bake the first cake, 20-25mins for the next 2 cakes,
to have the tester come out clean.
toasted and roughly chopped the nuts.
Kehui got too smart and put it into the blender, causes the outcome to be in powder form.
I insisted to chop the rest of it.
mix it in to the chilled ganache and put it in to the fridge.
chilled ganache – boil the whipped cream, put in the roughly chopped dark chocolate and let it melts.
“When the ganache is fully chilled and thick enough, gingerly pour the ganache over the cooled cupcake.”
& it’s ready to be serve, let it be hot/cold.
I prefer it hot though.
& yes, kehui and I called it a success.
my mummy likes it too. ♥
for the boyfriend’s cake, I decorated it with red hearts. ♥
pretty, isn’t it. :)
♥ boyfriend’s belated birthday celebration up next. :)
