Another birthday in the family, this time my sister Jyotika. I don’t know if I have ever told you before , “But Jyotika is Fancyyyy”. She keeps saying this herself all the time :P.
She accepts gifts only from high street fashion brands :D. So basically, every year in the month of july, I am totally cash-strapped, owing to all the shopping for her gifts.
The gifts have to be trendy and high street and the cake has to be out of the world. So much pressure!! This time, I had envisioned a white chocolate cake piped with mocha flavoured rosettes.
I tried thrice, but couldn’t pipe perfect roses :(. I don’t know whether the sultry weather was affecting my buttercream’s consistency or I was just having a very bad day.
But after repeated failed attempts and time running out of my hands, I had to settle down with this owl pattern on my White Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting.
I have made an Owl Cake twice earlier for her, since she loves owls. So I really didn’t want to do an Owl again this time. But honestly, the flavours of this White Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting were so spot on that no one seemed to notice the repetitive owl :P.
Friends, family and she herself loved the White Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting.
I had baked a White Chocolate Cake and layered it with chocolate mousse filling. It was then covered with an out of the world mocha ganache.
And later hastily made an owl with chocolate chips over it. Still cute??
A slice of this White Chocolate Cake with Mocha Frosting is so gratifying and delectable.
Initially, I had planned only three layers but I am so happy with how the four layers have taken the cake to another level. The thin layers of the White chocolate cake, the generous filling of the chocolate mousse and the sinfully dark chocolate ganache, so scrumptious!!
This White chocolate cake recipe used here is a perfect vanilla cake that you can use for layer cakes. It’s soft and dense and holds up as much frosting as you want.
The moist white chocolate cake layers sandwiched with chocolate mousse and drenched in the dark mocha ganache give an awesome kick to the tastebuds!! If you are a coffee person, you must try this cake :).
