As it was my cousin’s birthday who is a beautiful beauty blogger Kaushal Beauty , so I decided to make her a Make-up Bag Cake, with her favourite cake Red Velvet. For the last few years she keeps asking to me to make red velvet cake, red velvet cookies even red velvet pancakes! I think she might be a little red velvet obsessed! 🙂
This was a lovely cake to make, I really enjoyed making all the details and very simple too. Apart from mixing lots of colours than can take time, it was relatively quick and simple to make. I made the lip stick in the her normal bright colour of red and nail polishes that are similar red and coral.
My cousin sister is a little gem, her Beauty Blogging has really taken off and has almost 800,000 subscribers on you tube where her videos are amazing – if you like beauty go visit her https://www.youtube.com/user/BeautyFulfilled – . I’m so proud of her doing so well, earlier this year she went the Cannes Film festival as I type up this blog post she is in New York for fashion week!
300g Caster Sugar
20g Cocoa Powder
20ml Dr Oetker Food Colour
1 Tsp Vanilla
300g Plain Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Baking Soda
3 Tsp White Vinegar
Cream together the margarine and sugar.
Slowly add in the eggs one at a time.
Mix together the food colouring, cocoa and vanilla in a small bowl
Add the cocoa food colour and buttermilk to the egg sugar mixture, and then mix well.
Add in the dry (flour, baking soda, salt) and mix well, finally add the white vinegar and give a good final mix. The vinegar will react to the buttermilk and baking soda, so quickly spoon into 2 lined baking tins and bake at 170c for about 35 minutes.
Transfer the cake on to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
Cut the cake in half and using 3 halves sandwich and butter cream the middle.
Then buttercream the outside of the cake to help the fondant icing to stick to the cake.
Cover the cake with fondant
Decorate to your taste! Easy peasy make up bag cake!
