Mother's Day Cake (Day 2)

So after I prepared all the parts of the cake, I'm now putting it together.

4. making the browned butter cream cheese frosting
Again I devided the original recipe. For my cakes I used:

  • 150g butter at room temperature
  • 150g browned buter from yesterday
  • 466g cream cheese
  • 151g confectioners sugar (Puderzucker)
  • a little bit salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

First, I stired the cream cheese until it was smooth.


Then I added all the butter and browned butter and mixed.


After that, all the other ingediences have to be mixed in until it forms a nice mass.


Then I mixed on high speed so the cream became creamy.


5. coating the cakes

I covered the top of the cheese cake from yesterday with a nice coat of the cream and let it cool in the fridge.


I tried to make two even layers out of the chocolate cake after I cut the top even, but I failed... the sides crumbled and I didn't get the cut neat.




But I packed a lot cream in there, especially the place where the cake was not as high as the rest before I put the second layer on top. I let that cool for about 15mins in the fridge.



Then I trimmed the sides, where all was crumbling.


After that, I crumbcoated and finalcoated the cake, letting it cool in between.

6. decorating the cake

Out of red fondand I cut out little hearts to decorate the cake. (do it like dough, but use confectioners sugar instead of flour)






To secure the cheesecake I used trimmed straws and a little bit of the cream, then I put the chocolate cake on top.



I decorated with the fondant hearts which I glued on with a little bit of water and chocolate flowers and hearts.
And this is how it looks like:


I'm very poud eventhough the chocolate cake was hard to coat and trim for my first attempt to frost a cake. It is very delicious! 
PS. It was easier with help ;)
