White Forest Cake

White Forest Cake

Update: I baked this cake for my son's bday and I got super response below. I shall do a video tutorial super soon. 

I am back again with another fabulous cake. Today its my husband's birthday. He usually hates sweets, chocolates, cakes. But his only like is White forest cake. So no other choice I baked a white forest cake. That too in a cooker. You know I am oven less ;). So after all my learnings in my previous bake "Vanilla Butter cake with buttercream frosting" I was all geared up to bake this.

After my LO slept I began baking it. It was 9 30 pm yesterday night. All mixing and baking was done by 10 20 pm. By 10 45 all my icing and cherrying was over. Cake to the refrigerator and I dosed off by 11 00 pm. I felt no pain in baking. May be I got used to.



The recipe is a 9 inch cake and the measurements on 250 ml measuring cup.
