While cake decorating is all about appearances, people will often comment on the taste of the cake too… there’s no point in serving up a cake that is inedible!

During my early learning phase of cake decorating, I made it my mission to focus on learning a couple of key things;

  1. Creating a tall cake that screams “PROFESSIONAL!”
  2. Making a delicious cake from scratch
  3. Learning how to make the Australian favourite – a rich moist Chocolate Mud Cake!

Making your own cake gives you the flexibility to make custom shapes, mix up the flavours of your tiers and best of all; you can say you made it by yourself.

It’s truly a satisfying feeling!

I spend months trying new recipes – and the simpler, the better in my opinion.

So notice that my selection are only a few ingredients – no complicated steps or fancy ingredients. Easy!

White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies Recipe

After discovering a little secret ingredient called ‘essence’ *said romantically!* I concocted these babies – yum! The sweet combo of white chocolate, mixed with the fruitiness of raspberry in a delicious “blondie”. Raspberry Essence is the trick here, which is cheating to some but so simple to store in the cupboard and add to icings, fondant, chocolates and even cake recipes. It’s become a favourite flavour choice for our family – to add some difference to a simple chocolate mud cake. I often complement it with raspberry icing. Here’s my recipe.
