Car Cake / Trio Marble Cake


                       I made this car shaped cake last Saturday for my son Shayaan's  2nd birthday...

Ingredients:

For Trio Marble Cake:

2 cups self raising flour
125 gm butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2-2 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
1 tbsp milk, extra
pink food colouring

For Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3-4 cups icing sugar/ confectioner's sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp milk

Ready to roll fondant
food colours

Preparation:

For Trio Marble Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius. Grease a cake tin with butter and dust it with flour or spray with a cooking spray.. (Here I used a rectangular cake tin and a small square cake tin).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat well.
  4. Fold in the flour alternately with the milk.
  5. Divide the prepared mixture into 3 bowls ; add the cocoa powder and 1 tbsp milk to one and the pink food colouring to another.
  6. Place the alternate spoonfuls of mixture into the prepared cake tins. Use a knife to swirl the mixture into a marble effect.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack...

 For Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:
  1. In a bowl, add the butter and beat until smooth and creamy at medium speed using electric mixer.
  2. Add 3 cups icing sugar/ confectioner's sugar , little at a time on low speed,until it mixes well with the butter.
  3. Then increase the speed to medium and add vanilla extract and  milk and beat until smooth and creamy...
  • To prepare this car shaped cake, I baked 2 cakes - one rectangular cake and a small square cake using this batter . Then allow the cakes to cool completely and level the top and sides of each cake with a knife.
  • To assemble the cake, place the rectangular cake on a serving plate or cake stand and place  small square cake on top of it...

  • Cover the cake with the vanilla buttercream frosting..



  • Then I covered the cake with Ready-to-Roll Icing / fondant . I used blue colour for the car, black and white fondants for wheels , lights and windows...

  • When ready to serve, cut the cake into slices and serve....
