How to make Chocolate Surprise Birthday Cake

  1. FOR CAKE:
  2. Take a large bowl, pour milk, icing sugar and salted butter. Beat together on a medium speed.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition.
  4. Add vanilla essence and beat again on medium speed, keep the liquid mixture aside.
  5. Sieve all the DRY INGREDIENTS together.
  6. Pour this dry mixture into the liquid mixture (pour small amount at a time), fold generously every time.
  7. Pre heat the oven on 180 degree centigrade.
  8. Pour the cake batter into a greased baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes at 190 degree centigrade.
  9. After that let it come to the room temperature, slice the cake horizontally into 2 or 3 layers.
  10. Brush sugar syrup on both sides of each layer, keep aside.
  11. Whip fresh cream, layer the cake with it and also cover the entire cake with it after layering.
  12. Make sure the outside layer of fresh cream remains thin. Refrigerate the cake for 15-20 minutes.
  13. FOR THE WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE: Take white chocolate, unsalted butter and heavy cream in a double boiler. Melt together and stir occasionally.
  14. Remove heat once the mixture gets completely molten and incorporated. Stir well until you get a smooth creamy white sauce.
  15. Keep aside and let it cool down completely. Take the cake out from the refrigerator and place over a wire rack.
  16. Pour the white chocolate ganache over it, make sure the cake is covered completely by the ganache. Refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes.
  17. Take the cake out from the refrigerator and decorate with fresh cherries, chocolate truffles, cookie crumbs etc.

My Tip:

if your ganache seems a little runny, you can add a small amount of corn flour into it.
