Easy Cake Recipe with chocolate frost and mango, strawberry topping....for anniversary celebration


I made this Yellow cake with chocolate fudge on our semi anniversary celebration:)

It was really awesome :)
It's said that little bite of chocolate makes us feel good that's why I prefer chocolate frost on it!!!!!!
Here is the recipe....

Ingredients:
For Yellow Cake:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • For frost: 
  •  cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2.  Grease and flour cake maker.
  3.  Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt ,Set aside
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  5.  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  6.  Pour batter into prepared pans.
                            




7.Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped. 
8.Cool 15 minutes before turning out onto cooling racks.

Fudge:

Frosting:
 Mix 1cup granulated sugar +1/4 cup cocoa +1 teaspoon vanilla extract + 1/4 cup butter +1/4 cup milk and boil this mixture. Frost is ready.
Decoration:
Decorate the cake as shown,
Cut little upper portion of the cake so that the frosting sticks firm. Apply frosting to the cake with knife and freeze it for about 1hr.
Now decorate the cake with the fruits you like. I used Mango and strawberry. 









Hope you all like my recipe....plz come back again... :)
Note Worthy TIPS:
While applying frost to cake the mixture spills on the cake boards and will ruin the complete preparation. To avoid this take wax strips/ Cut zip lock bag in to long strips and place them beneath the cake. remove these strips after you complete the decoration.
Always decorate cake with fruits/ nuts after freezing it atleast for 1hr.
