2  Marble Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes in Dessert by mum2five on: August 01, 2008 10:48:58 PM
I made a marble cake batter of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. I was aiming for the neopolitan look. Then I baked the cake batter into some ice cream cones.  Some I overfilled but I guess that added to the effect.  I didn't ice them but would look nice with some swirled up frosting as well.

I doubled this recipe and got 16 cone cupcakes.

Marble Small Cakes

60g butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk

Cream butter and sugar. Add in vanilla.

Beat in egg.

Add flour and milk alternately and mix lightly into a soft dough.

Split equally into three separate bowls. Leave one plain, colour one pink and add cocoa to the third (helps to dissolve cocoa in a little water first before adding to the batter).

Spoon dollops of each batter into cones or papers til 3/4 full. Swirl to form marble effect.

Bake in moderate oven for 10-15 mins until cooked.

5  Yummy Doggies in Dessert by mum2five on: July 15, 2008 03:51:59 AM
How cute are these? I made these this morning for the kids afterschool treat. They are a crunchy malt biscuit with chocolate chips and milo cereal ears.

I saw these cute little doggies on this blog http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.com/2007/01/horlicks-doggie-cookies.html. I modified the recipe a bit. The kids loved them and thought they were cute. They are not very sweet but that is a good thing. The sweetness only comes from the chocolate chips and the Milo cereal.

Here is my version

Malt Doggies Biscuits (makes 45 biscuits)

180g soft butter
80g malt powder
200g plain flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate hail(eyes)
some Milo cereal(ears)

Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

Sieve plain flour, corn flour and milk powder.

Cream butter and malt powder.

Put in plain flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.

Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
Insert two pieces of Milo cereal to form the 'ears', chocolate hail for the "eyes", and a chocolate chip in the centre for the 'nose'.

Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.

Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container

Unbaked - ready to go into the oven

All done, cooled and ready to eat!

Thats SUCH a cool cake.. Its beautiful!  Was it good?  Also, I'm just wondering, about how tall is/was it?
It wasn't really that big.  The bottom had to layer cakes, the middle 3 layer cakes and the top 2 layers.  So about 30cm tall.  

I have actually done a mini version with cupcakes, ranging from texas muffin size, then normal cupcake, then mini.  

Here was my mini practice.  Started like this

9  Topsy Turvy Cake in Dessert by mum2five on: June 18, 2008 02:51:06 PM
Here is my Topsy Turvy Cake that I made for a friends birthday.

The bottom layer is Chocolate Zucchini Cake, the middle is Caramel Mudcake and the top is White Almond and Sour Cream Cake.  Filled with Buttercream and then White Chocolate Fondant.

I don't think it turned out too bad.  It isn't as smooth as I would have liked in the purple layer.

10  Oreo Balls Bouquet in Dessert by mum2five on: June 18, 2008 06:50:59 AM
I know there are tons of Oreo Balls recipes on here and I have enjoyed everyone of them.  So I decided to give it a go. 

So here is my version.  I made them up and found some mini cookies and placed them on top and put them onto wooden skewers.  Then I clustered them up to make an Oreo Ball Bouquet!
