Black Forest Cake

Since it's my colleague's birthday on National Day, I have decided to make a cake for her. Since I don't have a lot of time as I baked and decorated the cake tonight to be brought to the office tomorrow, I did a Black Forest Cake for her since I have all the ingredients I need at home. Hope she will like it. Happy Birthday W!

Happy National Day !
Do you mind sharing how you managed to whip up the cream ?

Yes, I am really amateur in baking. Tried whipping the cream in baking class without problem. But I just can't whip the cream successfully at home. I am using Millac Gold. In the midst of whisking, there's bubbles, amount increase slightly, but that's it. After that, its overwhip and curdling starts.

Thanks a lot :)

I'm sure she'll like it, it's nice to bake a cake & give it to someone on her birthday ! I do that often too but when it comes to my own birthday, I've to bake one for myself to make the girls happy.....

Hie.. Maybe you should post up more dim sum recipes. cos being muslim, its a little difficult to find halal dimsums outside. even if there is, its quite expensive i think? i love soon kuey so much. maybe can do a recipe on it? thanks.

Hi Sascha, I have to get the recipe typed out first before I post it here.

Almond, Millac Gold is a diary whipping cream. If you overbeat it, it will curdles and leaves you with butter and water separated. The cream to use for creaming a cake is non-diary whipping cream or Topping cream.
