Double Layered Vanilla Cake With Fondant Icing By Umm Khaleel

Birthday Cake
 I commend those who manage to take pictures while cooking o. It's work on its own . It got to a stage I was tired. So make una manage these ones for me now Biko.

Cake recipe, you can half the recipe.
Butter 500g
Sugar 400g
Eggs 10
Milk, powdered. 3 tbs
Vanilla flavoring 1tbs
Baking powder. 

Fondant recipe
Icing sugar 2kg
Egg white 6

Mix butter and sugar till very fluffy, beat eggs separately and add to mixture a little at a time, and mix well. Measure baking powder and milk  to flour and add in two batches, add vanilla flavor. Turn a few times. Grease your pan and flour it, shake out excess flour. Then pour in your mixture and put In hot oven.

For fondant,  measure your icing sugar, then add cmc, note that if u are using those compact fancy icing sugar, you won't need much cmc else it becomes rubbery like bubble gum. Then add glucose (baking glucose o) to a few tablespoons of water, mix, set aside. Beat your egg whites and add. Continue to knead, add the glucose mixture, knead. If it gets too sticky, add a little icing, knead very well, and fold into a ball. set aside for rolling and decorating. 

You will need butter cream to use in plastering the cake before you place the rolled out fondant on it.

I just started learning to bake and decorate. All Abuja people on WC should come patronize me on. * smiles.

    I'm still a student in this baking things oh, for the icing of pan, do I need to ice the entire pan, before I place my cake ontop for decoration. If so how do I make the cake to stick to the ice pan.
    And for a three tier cake, do I need to ice each cake seperately, if so, what can I use to make them stick together... Oya make una help a sister abeg

      If I understand u well, u mean the board where the cake will be placed, and on top of the turntable. The board should first be splattered with butter icing, it'll act as the sticking agent. There r different approaches to the tiered cakes, u may choose to ice each separately and use butter icing to stack, or if ur expertise permits, stack them together using. Butter cream in between, then roll out a large fondant to cover all.

      Can you please give details on how to make one? I tried it with butter and confectioners sugar and added a but of lime for flavor. I beat it till it was fluffy but I realized the icing was not thick enough and it kinda melted.
      Anything I did wrong?

    So wt makes it double layered. MrsAjaryee

    1. Ezenwanyi Osumenyi7/12/2013

      I was wondering too,y will they say double wen me am seein one layer.hian eya and muslim madam una need glasses abi wetin.mtsheew

    2. If I am not mistaken, a double layered cake is usually baked in 2" high pans and two of the cakes are placed on each other and icied as a single cake

  11. please how can one achieve a less sugar cake? 400g sugar on 500g of flour and butter taste too sugary for me... can the quantity of sugar be reduced to 200g instead of 400g? please help a sister...

  12. Anonymous7/12/2013

    @Gee Emmy, by my own recipe, 600g of sugar goes for 1kg of flour meaning 300 or evn 250 is ok for 500g flour; I was amazed abt ds measurmnt too bt u knw our tastes differ; so if u feel lyk using 200 it doesn't affect d cake in anyway jst d sweetness. MrsAjaryee

  13. yes u can reduce ur sugar wen baking depending on how sweet u want ur cakr to be bt d important one is dat ur flour ad butter must be d same measurement. please can anyone teach modelling ad gum paste

    Well I think for 1kg of flour, half a kilo(500g) of sugar should be ok... Plus, it all depend on how u want it though!!!
