Want to serve your guests with mouth-watering and eye appealing desserts? Need not to worry!! Here are some tip on how to make good looking desserts with some simple tools…
I chose to make a carrot cake using palm oil. Instead of just serving a plain carrot cake to the guest, I added some cream cheese frosting and carrot confit to go with it so that it gives a twist to the carrot cake when you consume together. It’s just a simple recipe but when you plate it on the plate, it looks just like what you can have in a restaurant or maybe even better!! Here are the recipes for all the 3 elements; carrot cake, cream cheese frosting and carrot confit.
Baking Soda 2g
Cinnamon Powder 2g
Palm Oil 65g
1) Mix everything in except for carrot and walnuts.
2) When the batter is form, add in carrot and walnuts.
3) Put in the cake tin and bake at 160°C for 7 to 8 minutes.
Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream Cheese 125g
1) Cream the cream cheese with yoghurt and sugar.
1) Boil sugar and water.
2) Then add in carrot and cook until soften
(Remember to put a parchment paper on the confit while boiling)
Use a brush to dip into the chocolate, then hold the brush on the plate and turn the turn table and it will form an even circle. It’s that simple!! Practice a few times if you are not confident with it.
As for the chocolate feather (Which I didn’t manage to do it in the video) that I put on the cake is also very easy! Just use a small knife to dip into the chocolate and touch the chocolate side down on to the parchment paper strip lightly. Repeat the same steps for a few times, and then curl the paper strips into a bottle so that the chocolate will be curved when it sets. Remove it carefully from the parchment paper strip, and you get a chocolate feather as easy as that.
