and get 5 layers out of it.
So there's loads you are able to do with it.
You possibly can swap it up and make
all of the layers a unique shade,
however right now we're gonna make a lovely
cake for Valentine's Day.
To get began we're gonna spray every pan

Subsequent I’ve one normal cake combine
that I ready based on the bundle instructions.
And I'm utilizing chocolate proper now.
Be at liberty to make use of some other taste that you simply like,
however nothing says Valentine's Day to me like chocolate.
So I'm simply gonna divide it evenly among the many pans.
Now that the batter's in our pans
we're gonna go forward and bake these at 350 levels.
It takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Now that our muffins are baked and cooled,
I'm gonna go forward and degree them.
So I'm gonna take my cake proper right here,
and I’ve my serrated knife,
and I'm simply gonna degree off the highest.
I'm gonna put the highest on this bowl proper right here.
It's very nice to make use of leftover cake
to make cake balls and stuff like that.
Now you probably have any edges that type of went
over the aspect of the pan like this one proper right here,
go forward and take a knife and simply trim that off.
You need a actually, good flat aspect.
As soon as your muffins are all leveled,
we're gonna go forward and stack and fill 'em.
So I’ve a adorning bag right here ready
with a tip 2A and buttercream icing,
and we're simply gonna go forward
and we're gonna fill the cake.
And what we're doing is we're not solely giving it
scrumptious taste, however we're additionally giving it heighth.

and simply stack it on high of that.
And don't fear an excessive amount of in regards to the edges.
We're gonna fill these in later.
Now that your cake is stacked and crammed,
we're gonna go forward and take the remaining icing
and pipe a line round all of the cracks in-between the layers.
To easy out these edges we're gonna
go forward and take a spatula
and simply run it alongside the aspect of the cake.
So that is all we're gonna do to the cake.
We're not gonna ice it anymore.
We're gonna depart it.
Proper now it's a development known as bare cake
that's actually widespread.
So the purpose of bare muffins is that you simply don't
put anymore icing on the edges.
You permit it uncovered.
It's a really rustic, makes the cake look actually scrumptious,
and don't fear about lacking that icing
as a result of we bought all of it within the layers.
Now that your cake is all easy we're gonna
set this off to the aspect and we're gonna make
our glaze for the highest of it.
To make the glaze, it's very easy.
I’ve proper right here 2 1/four cup powdered sugar.
I'm gonna add in three tablespoons plus
one teaspoon of milk,
half a teaspoon of clear vanilla extract.
Okay, then we're simply gonna combine that every one collectively.
What we're gonna do is we're gonna drizzle this
on high of our cake so that you need it to be a pleasant
skinny consistency, nearly like shade move,
so when you discover you’ll want to add extra milk,
go forward and try this.
The glaze is completed so I'm gonna go forward
and divide it out, 'trigger we're gonna shade it.
So for my burgundy I'm gonna take
my icing shade proper right here,
go forward and stir it up with a toothpick,
put just a little little bit of the colour into that glaze.
I'm gonna take my spatula proper right here
and I'm gonna combine that shade in.
The following glaze, we're gonna do one shade of crimson.
So I'm gonna make this the lighter shade.
So I'm gonna take my crimson, crimson icing right here
and I'm simply gonna add a contact of shade.
It's nearly gonna look pink.
For the subsequent shade we're gonna make it just a little deeper crimson,
so I'm gonna add extra crimson coloring than I did earlier than.
And don't overlook you may at all times return and add extra shade
if it's not the appropriate shade you need.
Now that our glaze is coloured,
I'm gonna go forward and put these in some adorning bag.
No tip is required.
I'm gonna minimize off the top of my bag proper right here
and I'm gonna drizzle on the finish
and I wanna do it in strains.
So there's no rhyme or cause to
the shades of colours I'm selecting.
It's all very random.
We simply need it to look good.
Now we're gonna do strains of various colours,
and we wish the sting to type of drizzle off.
You see the way it's doing there?
And if I even need some extra drizzle
I can add just a little bit extra.
And we're accomplished.

together with your sweetheart, your mates, or simply eat it your self.
I don't decide.
