Tutti Frutti Butterfly Cake



 Hi friends and readers,

            Hope everyone is doing well.. I am back..Had to take a small break for my delivery..Alhamdulillah we have been blessed with a baby boy, Shayaan, born on February 20th. So now I am a busy mom of 3 kids :) .. I have got many recipes in my drafts, InshaAllah I will try to post them on coming days...
               Today is my daughter, Safa's 7th birthday..She wants a butterfly cake, so I made this Tutti Frutti Butterfly Cake for her with the help of my two little girls..

Eggless Tutti Frutti Cake:

Recipe Source: The Chef and her Kitchen 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar, powdered
1 cup yoghurt or curd, beaten
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup tutti frutti
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
a pinch of salt

Preparation:
  1. Preheat the oven at 180 degree celcius..Grease and flour 8" round baking pan and keep it aside. (Here I used a round pan and a small rectangular pan)..
  2. In a large bowl, beat yoghurt until smooth. Add sugar to it and beat again for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add baking powder and baking soda to the yoghurt mixture and mix well. Keep it aside for 2-3 minutes till it becomes frothy.
  4. Add vanilla essence and oil and mix it nicely and gently and make sure that the air in the mixture is not lost.
  5. Add the flour in two batches and gently fold the flour into the mixture until you get smooth dropping consistency.
  6. Mix tutti frutti with 1 tsp of flour in a small bowl. Add this tutti frutti to the cake batter and fold it nicely.
  7. Pour this batter to the prepared tin and bake it for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Remove the tin from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack..
How to make a Butterfly Cake:
     
         For making butterfly cake, I followed the steps used here..
  1. Make a round cake and a rectangular cake.
  2. Cut the round cake into half.

    3. Trim the rectangular cake.


     4. Place the pieces together and trim small triangles on both sides.

     5. After the cake pieces are assembled, trim the edges to make them look curved...
     6. For frosting, I used Buttercream Icing and decorated with Smarties and sugar sprinkles...



   7. Cut the cake into thick slices and serve...
