Cake boules


My Son and I have set ourselves a mission to have a baking competition this June half term holiday from School.  So far we have created a test batch and they were not bad at all – quite a success for a first try!  Now we are getting serious and have tried a few different flavours in order to see who will be crowned King or Queen of our newly named cake boules.  Tiny bite size pieces of cake truffle dipped in chocolate and decorated.  As we speak the boules are in the freezer waiting now for dipping and decorating in the final stage of this competition.  We have also made some special wheat / gluten-free cake for those we know who can not eat normal cakes but still like a treat.  We have decided to try some different flavour combinations and rather than fun pops we have decided we want to go more for a truffle, sophisticated look.   Funnily enough we seem to be be very popular with peple wanting to be the chief testers – but those roles have been filled!   Once we see the reaction we get, we will post more information about them.  This weeks competition flavours are: 

Birthday Boule - Madagascan vanilla soaked cake with fresh buttercream centre dipped in white chocolate with white sugar crystals. 

Fudge Boule- Madagascan vanilla soaked cake with fresh buttercream centre filled with tiny squares of creamy fudge dipped in milk chocolate topped with fudge pieces .

Lemony Lush Boule - Lemon drizzle cake with fresh lemon buttercream dipped in white or milk chocolate and drizzled with chocolate and sprinkles (this was our test batch).

Toffee Heaven Boule- Rich dark chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge frosting mixed with speckles of toffee and smashed pieces of toffee dipped in milk chocolate topped with toffee shards.

Chocolate Crunch Boule - Rich dark chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge frosting mixed with tiny pieces of biscuit in the centre dipped in milk chocolate and coated with biscuit crumbs.

Vanoffee Boule - Madagascan vanilla soaked cake with fresh buttercream centre filled with speckles and chunks of toffee dipped in white chocolate and topped with toffee shards.

So we manged to get quite a few combinations for this competition (would not have happened in a normal week) – the kitchen has smelt like cake all week.

  2. I’d say Excellent for a first attempt! I won’t mention my disastrous first attempt at cake pops! Let’s just say I was a little stressed and I ended up eating most of the candy melt :0 Lovely first post :-)
