Strawberry Cake with White Chocolate Icing

Photobucket

Strawberry cake with white chocolate frosting!!! Yummy and a sweet adrenaline rush I should say :) 

This was one cake that I loved as soon as I made it and did a happy feet dance :) Though not so perfect with the frosting, it still made me feel proud of this acquired skill of mine ;) A heart full of roses..Who wouldn't like it! 

The cake is simple, eggless and delicious!!

Ingredients:

For cake:

All purpose flour (maida) - 250 gms
Cooking soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Butter - 100 gms
Milk maid - 200 ml
Water - 50 ml
Milk - 100 ml
Strawberry Emulsion - 1/2 tsp

For frosting:

Method:

Sieve maida, cooking soda and baking powder together. 

Take a mixing bowl and beat butter and milk maid until smooth. Add the strawberry emulsion and beat until well mixed. Fold in the maida, baking powder mixture alternating with milk and water until well incorporated. 

Pour the batter in the greased and floured mould and smoothen the top with spatula. 

Preheat oven to 180°C and bake the cake for 30-40 mins. 

Check if cooked by inserting a tooth pic in the center. The cake done if the toothpick comes out clean.

Icing:

Chop white chocolate into small chunks. Melt it over double boiler and keep it aside until it becomes warm but does not solidify again.

Meanwhile beat butter and sugar until stiff. 

Beat in the white chocolate into the butter sugar mixture.

Take a disposable icing bag and put in the star shaped nozzle. Fill it with icing and pipe small circles from inside out to make pretty rosettes. 

Enjoy the cake :)

Tips:

If you dont have emulsion for flavoring, simply use 1/2 tsp of strawberry essence and 1/4 tsp of pink food color to get the same results. 

White chocolate frosting is quite sweet so try to keep the sugar levels in the cake subtle.

The cakes look so pretty I'd feel bad to eat them and disturb the beauty.

By the way - is cooking soda the same as baking powder? I wondered if baking powder can be used instead of cooking soda. You had once posted a recipe for a 2 minute microwave cake in a mug - and since I didn't have cooking soda, I used baking powder and it turned out fine.
