Finally! A Nigerian Cake Decorating Blog by Dreamsinbc(f): 8:50pm On Mar 10, 2013
Hello! I've just put up my blog, www.frostedbakeshopng.blogspot.com. There, you'll learn some of my cake and bread recipes. I also offer some tutorials and how-tos. You can place your cake orders via the blog, and you can ask me questions relating to baking.
I also intend to lecture on the business side of cake decorating, things such as how to appear more professional, fair cake pricing, etc.
You can also find details of any classes I offer and YouTube videos as time goes on.

If I can, you can,

Deema.

First of all change the name to something easy to remember.

Secondly damn the cost and get your own personal website / blog and watch people keep visiting it once you keep upsating it. Put up free E-Books for people to download for free initially abd then you can decide to start charging with time.

Be Unique don't follow the blogspot.com or other similar bloggers go for www.yourcompanyname.com to act as both your website and blog.

All the best.

Hi @acidtalk, thanks for the advice. Frosted BakeShop is my business name, but it appears there's already one in the blogosphere, and on the web. I tried to google it, but it's being held by Go Daddy for someone (I hope I understood that right).

And the website thing is actually what I'm going for, I just wanted to see how it works first.

Please give me your email address, I need to further understand the e-book thing.

Thank u

eimuhb: Y did uu delete the vanilla n chocolate cake recipe from ur blog?

Hi, eimuhb, I did so cos the blog now focuses on healthier recipes, you get?. The recipes are below


To Die For Chocolate Cake

1 3/4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cups cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup, brewed, hot coffee

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare two 8" pans (grease and flour, bake release or parchment paper). Sift flour and measure out 1 3/4 cups. To the flour, add baking soda, salt, baking powder and cocoa. Sift into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the sugar. Mix till combined (I used a wooden spoon) In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Pour buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients and beat just until smooth. Add coffee and mix just until incorporated. Divide batter evenly between the two pans. It will be runny, but don't worry, it is as it should be. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick stuck in the center of each cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pans for 10-15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Frost cakes as desired.

Ps: This recipe doubles perfectly. Just double all the ingredients except the oil. I would use 3/4 cup of oil in the doubled version.


If I can, you can,

Deema.



Vanilla Cake (adapted from Kaboose)

2 cups sugar (I use 1 1/2 cups of sugar)
4 eggs (I use 3 eggs, because I find 4 makes it taste eggy)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil(please do not use groundnut oil, I found out the hard way)
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt

METHOD
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line two 9-inch round cake pans with baking paper, or grease and flour them.
In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs together until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the milk, oil, and vanilla into the sugar mix, beat well. Then pour the wet mix into the dry mix and beat for another minute, just until the batter is smooth and creamy. Don't over beat. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan(s).
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the tops are golden and a toothpick poked into the center of the layer comes out. Loosen the sides of the cake from the pan with a thin knife, then turn out onto a rack and peel off the paper. Let cool completely before covering with frosting, if desired.

NOTE: Here, I would like to add something about cake pans. I find that the cake pans which are commonly available here are 4 inch-5 inch deep. I don't really like baking in them. Where I can, I use 2 inch deep pans, and bake in layers, and fill the cakes. If, however, you prefer using the really deep ones, please do so. The difference would be that you would use one pan, instead of two, and you would bake for longer at lower heat.


If I can, you can,

Deema


If there are others you would like, please let me know
