The Wedding Cake
In my eyes, the wedding cake is the ultimate party cake ! It’s the simplest cake in the world and the cake most requested by children as it’s only a yogurt cake (or a pound cake) covered in chocolate ganache !
For the ganache :
- 200 g of dark chocolate
- 230 g of single cream
- 80 g of butter
- Some smarties for decoration
For the yogurt cakes :
- 1 natural yogurt (keep the pot to use as a measure)
- 2 pots of caster sugar
- 3 pots of flour
- 2 eggs
- Half a pot of sunflower oil
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Some butter and flour for the baking tins
Multiply these quantities by two and distribute them between three different sized baking tins, or by three should you only have one baking tin: you will need to make three cakes then cut them out into three different sizes in order to layer them on top of each other.
Preheat the oven to 180° and prepare the cakes (this recipe also works with pound cake). Mix all the ingredients together in a salad bowl whilst doubling the quantities if you have three different sized baking tins, or by tripling them if you have to make three cakes that you will cut out once they’re cooked). Grease the baking tins, add a bit of flour to them and put them in the oven (you can cook the three cakes at the same time if your oven is big enough) for 25 to 30 minutes.
Once they’ve cooled down, take the cakes out of the baking tins, level them out so that the surfaces are flat and can be layered on top of eachother, then cut them out using paper circles that you can make with a compass and some scissors (this is only if you haven’t got three different sized baking tins).
Put the 200 grams of chocolate in a blender and bring the creme and butter to the boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate which will melt instantly when it comes into contact with the boiling hot cream. Leave it to rest for two minutes then mix it together with a whisk.
Pile up the three layers then cover them in chocolate ganache (when they’re still warm, all you need to do is pour it from the top of the wedding cake, there will be enough liquid to be distributed over the entire cake. If you wait too long, it will solidify).
