I decided to bake the marble cake in round tins. One was ok, but the other one with more chocolate sank in the centre a bit ... I suspect I didn't mix in the melt chocolate well enough to even it out. I tried to bake 2 cakes (marble & pink cakes) in under an hour. because I wanted to watch the korean drama episode coming up on TV soon...in the end, I missed the full episode except the last 10 mins.. :(
Removed the crackly top... very messy.. isn't it?
Next morning, I frosted the cake. I forgot to take photos...because again, I was rushing to do everything under an hour..as I had to bring my son out before 11:30am. Well, I was slightly delayed again and left the house only around 11:45am.
Here is the insides of the cake..if you are wondering how Rose's pink cake looks like. The pink cake her friend likes.. I forgot who.. is it Flo? I have to go home and read again.
I sliced it really very thin..like 1/4 inch thick.. so that everyone can have a slice. I think a proper wedding cake slice is thicker..lol!
Looked quite pathetic?
You can see some ganache in the centre between the slices..Only very thin layer of ganache between layers except the part where there is a dip in the cake layer..
This is my share..half of that 1/4 inch...
Everyone likes the cake esp. the marble cake. Me too. I liked the marble cake too. If you haven't made this yet, please give it a try. The marble cake in HCB is also very good too..less chocolate, but taste equally amazing.
The pink cake is a denser and sweeter too...and probably why Rose chose it for fondant covering too. Taste similar to white velvet cupcakes in HCB..and between the yellow cupcakes and the white cupcakes, I prefered the yellow cupcakes too. I find the cake texture and taste is better with sour cream than with milk..perhaps the cake taste sweeter with milk. It is possible to make Rose's white cake with sour cream instead of milk? Next time I'll try. I'm still searching for the perfect white cake to my tastebuds..
