Today, we’re baking a pink velvet cake in a cute „Hello Kitty“ style. The recipe and ingredients can be found below in the info box or can visit us at http://amerikanisch-kochen.de For the dough, we mix neutral vegetable oil, sugar, vanilla sugar and soft butter until we have a foamy, almost white mix. Now we add the eggs and keep stirring until the consistency is like pudding. Next, we mix buttermilk, lemon juice and baking resistant, pink food coloring. The acid in the buttermilk and lemon juice reacts with the baking powder and soda bicarbonate during baking. This gives the cake a smooth, velvety consistency later. We now proceed with the dry ingredients. The flour is screened into the butter-egg-mixture with baking powder, bicarbonate soda and salt. Quickly mix it with the colored buttermilk and pour it into a greased baking pan. We used a Hello Kitty pan, greased it with oil and dusted it with breadcrumbs. All information regarding the used materials and products can be found in the info box and in the recipe. You don’t have to use a „Hello Kitty“ pan, a regular springform pan works as well since you can cut out the „Hello Kitty“ shape later on. The cake is now baked for 50-60 minutes in the preheated oven at 165°C. It looks like this after baking and has to cool down before we move on. You can test if the cake is ready using the „skewer test“. If there’s no dough sticking to the skewer, the cake is ready. After the cake has cooled off, we proceed with the raspberry buttercream. For the aroma, we use frozen raspberrys that we ground into a fine powder with some icing sugar. For the cream, we use butter at room temperature that is stirred for 2 minutes with salt and the raspberry powder, and after that, we add some screened icing sugar. After this is done, we can move on to decorating. The cake is carefully removed from the pan and topped with the raspberry cream. Next, we roll out white fondant and cover the cake with it. Now we add the nose, eyes, ribbon and whiskers. For this, you can simply shape colored fondant and cut it to fit. You should dust the form with icing powder so it doesn’t stick. Using some sugar glue, you can glue everything on the cake. The finished cake can be served on a regular cake plate or on a cakeboard like us. We simply covered it with pink fondant and concealed the border with some pink ribbon band. We hope you enjoyed our video. If you try our recipes, we would love to see pictures on Facebook.
