carebare cake? patrick star cake?
say something! (0)
My first baking experience at Belfast!! Apparently each of my housemates already baked at least once, with each of them having a signature cake..so Patrick suggested that we bake one too, to also celebrate my coming to Belfast! (although that was 3 weeks ago but, anyway... )

So out this recipe came from his big cookbook via internet! don't expect our cake to look like the one in their picture though.. we didn't follow the recipe exactly, with doing abit of our own modifications here and there. (we are improving the recipe itself k!) and the prep and cook time 1 hour only is almost impossible lar.. unless you're Flash.. or Night Stalker.. =.=
so..here goes! Noobster chef to assist you through creating *MAGIC* with a noobster step by step directoryyyy!

instead of using berries cos they are so mahal, we used strawberries instead! they were free..courtesy of somebody =p so..

Step 1 :mash all those mouth watering strawberries with all your might (using potato masher will do) till the fruits float on the juices like so.. si? then u add wid much of de sugareeee...comprehende? *gestures hand frenchly*

the correct position of mashing.

step 2: seperate the lovely juices from the succulent fruits into another bowl. *ahem*potential hand model..maybe?

Then, get 4 eggs from the carton, and recommended to use your inner qigong power to seperate the egg whites from the yolks. As you will be mixing them seperately with alot of other stuff like cooking oil.. . .. .

and.... .. other stuff. =.=

together with those eggs..just mix them all up with ample amount of flour,baking powder, sugar and raising flour! then pop the "elixer" into the oven, preferably to 200 degrees celcius, for 20 minutes.

while the cake is a'bakin and a'raisin, we brew up our cream that will soon envelop the whole cake. ingredients are, cream cheese, more sugar and .. *secret* hehe. our own addition to the recipe.. (the secret ingredient IS edible..if i can read your mischevious minds..) It tastes just beautiful ..yogurtastic! as you can observe from patrick's silent "mmmmmm" expression.

even i can't help but steal a few (about 10...*blush) mouthfuls.. nyam..

it is best to refrigerate the yogurt and strawberry sauces into the fridge, about as long as u think is best..the longer the better actually i feel. so that it'd be thick once you bring them out of the fridge.

Step 4 : pour the yogurt firstly on the first layer of the cake. Then, just put the 2nd layer on top of it and go crazeeee!!!!!!!!!!! just coat every curve of the round cake as you transform from this...




to this!!!

doesn't the cake just looks gorgeous? with the creamy stawberry yogurt gracefully dripping at every corner and glistening brightly as the sunlight hits it..even my stomach's growling now as i'm typing this.. (seriously..)

caught in the act. seriously it wasn't me, the yogurt makes me not think straight..

Step 1000 : Splatter the top of the cake with the remaining fruits that was put asidein any shape or form . i chose the star shape! (don't ask me why..randomly did it) err.. it does look kinda gross now but seriously! its very delicious wan! Its best if you put the whole cake in the fridge again, as its best eaten when its chilly.. true dessert form. *salivates like siau lang*

squabble squabble.. "Name it Patrick cake lar.. it looks like Patrick the starfish from Spongebob Squarepants, and you're wearing red wert..same as the topping!" "But its suppose to be done for you mar.. walau u also wearing red wei. Carebare cake!!" sigh..hidden drama behind the kitchen.. OR

so the verdict was...

"carebare cake"

*i still think it looks like patrick*
