PIMP MY CAKE! (PART 1)

Updated: Mar 2

Happy #monday everyone!

Today I bring you our ULTIMATE #cakerecipe with an added #special ingredient...

Check out the video below and prepare to #drool

Have you guessed the #secretingredient yet?...

We used #homemade vanilla buttercream (vegan obviously) made with organic icing sugar from @ethicalsuperstore AND @rhythm108 OH LA LA Chocolate Hazelnut cookies!!


We're currently #obsessed with @rhythm108 range of artisanal chocolates and cookies and for good reasons too!

Like @simplymixuk Cake In A Mug mixes, their products are made with Love, simple organic ingredients and 100% vegan and gluten-free.

We had to pair our decadent cakes with their cookies!


How #lush does this Simply Mix layered cake look?!

Well great news, you can make it too in your kitchen in less than 3 minutes!!

Check out our recipe below.


To make this Simply Mix layered cake you will need:

- 1x pack of Brownie Cake In A Mug mix

- 1 pack @rhythm108 Double Chocolate Hazelnut cookies

- your favorite mug


BUTTERCREAM INGREDIENTS

- 50g vegan butter

- 1 cup @sumawholefoods organic icing sugar

- 1 tsp vanilla extract


METHOD

Bake your Brownie #cakeinamug in your microwave for 1:40mins or in the oven at 180° for 25-30 mins.

While your cake cools down start preparing your #vegabuttercream using either a professional countertop mixer or a stand mixer. Whatever works best for you.


I personally prefer to use the countertop type, this way I only have to add the ingredients and the machine does the rest.


Once your buttercream is ready, grab a bakery palette or a kitchen knife and gently slide it around the edges of your mug so that the sponge starts loosening.

Flip your mug upside down on a plate and lift to extract your mini sponge cake.

Now cut your cake in the middle and set aside.

Transfer your buttercream into a piping bag and start piping your first layer, add pieces of @rhythm108 chocolate hazelnut cookies and add a bit more buttercream so that the top layer of your cake will be held in place.

Now that your #minicake is assembled feel free to add a few more dabs of buttercream here and there with extra bits of cookies to make it more indulgent.


Place on a fancy plate and voilà! Your cake should look more or less like ours pictured up.

Before you start devouring your cake and forget to take a picture tag us on our socials! We love to see your creations!

With Love,


Simply Mix
