Riot of Flavors
This cake is a true delight for the ones who want not just one but three flavours in a single cake..simply delightful…
10 heaped spoons flour
1/2 cup oil
1 cup castor sugar
1 spoon baking powder
A pinch of baking soda
3 spoons curd
1 spoon vanilla essence
Food colouring- red, green and orange
Sieve together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl, add sugar and eggs and beat them lightly. Add oil to this mixture. Now add the dry ingredients to this wet mixture, put curd and vanilla essence, mix nicely. Divide this mixture in 3 parts and add the colours red, green and orange and mix gently. Grease the cake tin and pour the mixture into it line wise, one colour at a time, to make three different lines of the colours. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 170 degrees C or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
After the cake is done, let it cool for sometime, then remove and let it completely cool on a wire rack.
Ingredients for the Icing:
1 1/2 cup whipped cream
3 table spoons strawberry crush
3 table spoons kiwi crush
3 table spoons orange crush
In a large bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks are formed.
Transfer the cooled cake to a turn table, cut it in half from the centre. Moist the cake by sprinkling some water on it. Gently spread the whipping cream over it and cover the cake with top piece. Spread the remaining cream on the top of the cake and fully cover it. Add some cream to a piping bag and decorate your cake as desired preferably giving three equal spaces by creating boundaries. Now fill up each space with the crush of your choice, you don’t have to necessarily line the top colours with the base colours of your cake, this way however you cut, you will get a contrasting colourful cake, with a different colour on the top and a different colour of the base, though its purely your choice, I like it this way. A hint of surprise is always good. And there you have a colourful looking and amazingly tasty cake , you get 3 flavours to experience in one cake…
