i decided to make cream cheese frosting with white chocolate in to cover it with.
2 teaspoons salt
1tsp baking powder
1/4 cup natural cocoa powder
1 ounce red food colouring
1 1/2 tablespoons water
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter,
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
let cool, upside down to level it out,
make the frosting
2 100g bars of white chocolate
300g pack of cream cheese
100ml double cream
break up chocolate and melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pan or boiling water and add the cream, mix in to the cream cheese until smooth.
slice the tops off the small cakes, keep this for the sprinkles,
add some frosting and sandwich the two cut sides together so the cake is perfectly flat on the top and bottom, slice the larger cake in half and sandwich some frosting and turn upside town so the flat edge is facing up,
layer the cakes together using frosting, (this cake is not huge so it didn’t need support)
add the frosting around the cake and smooth out.
using the pieces of the cake that were cut off make into crumbs and add around the bottom of each layer for decoration.
