shinchan oreo cake!

happy birthday mit! :]

got a cake order from a lovely girl called hannah to make a shin-chan bday cake :]
hope you liked it! was a small little cake for four people :]
so i decided to make this oreo dark chocolate cake recipe i found which i loved!!

oreo dark chocolate cake LVL☆☆

  • 2 cups castor sugar
  • 1 34 cups plain flour
  • 34 dark cocoa powder
  • 1 12 tsp baking soda
  • 1 12 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 12 cup vege oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 10-15 oreos (twisted and seperated)
  • 15 oreos (chopped and crumbed)

icing: ( i didnt end up making this part. but give it a go!)

  • 12 cup butter
  • 23 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 13 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

filling: (i manipulated this as i made extra cream. so just vary it yourself!)

  • 13 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp icing sugar
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 18 cup oreo crumbs (i added heaps more! heehee!!!)



  • sift all dry ingredients together inclucing the sugar (i didnt do it this way)
  • add eggs, milk, oil, vanilla for 2minutes
  • stir in the boiling water (this will thin out the batter)
  • pour into cake tins and bake @175-degrees till the center is clean when poked with skwer!


  • stir melted butter into cocoa till smooth
  • alternately add icing sugar & milk till the consistency you desire
    (add some more milk if you want it extra spreadable)
  • add some vanilla extract too


  • whip cream, sugar & vanilla extract till about medium peak
  • fold in oreo cookie crumbs (bec you have the cream at medium peak, its safer to whisk it up abit with the crumbs prior to use) ;]
to assemble:
  • pour some cake batter into tin
  • pop in some oreos (the side with the cream)
  • pour cake batter in again
  • bake!


marzipan modelling for school! made some fruitsvegies and animals~ :]

greentea & red bean mousse chocolate cake

happy birthday uncle mike & jun ^_____^

i got a lovely cake book for my birthday and i saw this recipe. i thought: 'greentea&red bean' such an asian taste - the oldies would like it - lets do that! heehee!

turn out to be quite yummy!!!~ i was having second thoughts but NICE! wasnt too sweet though! i think if i make it again next time i'll add alittle more sugar just to make it perfect!! i wanted a soft asian-like sponge, so i decided to make a chocolate chiffon cake. it was delicious! still keeps its softness and texture even after been in the fridge over night =D
and the recipe has abit too much gelatine suggested so i think i'll lessen it to make the mousse more cream-like. once i perfect it i'll post up a recipe :]

having to wake up after a big night and go straight to designing .. i couldn't think of anything so i did a similar design to my last cheesecake~ heehee!!

i'll post up the original recipe and you can give it a go :] i doubled my recipe size. bec it really isnt enough originally as u can tell. u could even triple it! but watch out for the gelatine and sugar.

  • you'll need to make some sort of chocolate sponge or whatever you wish

    italian meringue
  • 10g castor sugar
  • 3g water
  • 15g egg white

    greentea mousse
  • 6g gelatine powder (be careful. if u double it, i think you could go 8-9g. not sure yet!)
  • 20g castor sugar (would need a touch more!)
  • 10g greentea powder
  • 3drops green tea essence
  • 65g fresh milk
  • 200g thick cream
  • 120g red bean (cooked till tender)
  • line your cake tin with some acetate
  • bring 10g castor sugar + water to form syrup
  • whisk the 15g egg whites till fluffy
  • add slightly cooled syrup into egg whites. continue whiskin till cool down
  • whip the cream
  • combine gelatine + milk + greentea essence over bainmarie till dissovled.
  • combine italian meringue and whipped cream + greentea powder
  • then pour in the gelatine milk mix
  • pour half of the green tea mousse into cake ring.
  • sprinke some redbean
  • put a layer of chocolate sponge
  • mousse
  • redbean
  • sponge
  • mousse
  • smoothen the surface and chill in frige till set then SERVE~
