Raspberry-Blueberry Birthday Cake (覆盆子蓝莓生日蛋糕)
(Recipe adapted from May 厨苑食谱  and Sonia Nasi Lemak lover with minor changes in purple)

Make: One 7" round cake (with removable bottom cake pan) (I used 6" round cake pan)

Basic Chocolate Sponge cake
3 egg yolk
15g sugar
38g corn oil
45g milk
12g chocolate powder
1/2 tsp chocolate emulo (I replaced with nutella)

3 egg white
45g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Method:
1.  Lightly whisk egg yolk with sugar.
2.  Add in corn oil, milk stir to combine.
3.  Add in cake flour, cocoa powder and chocolate emulco (nutella) mix well, set aside.
4.  Beat egg white with cream of tartar till foamy.
5.  Gradually add in sugar (in 3 batches), beat till stiff peaks.
6.  Take 1/3 portion of egg white mixture and use hand whisk to mix with egg yolk       
     mixture till light.
7.  Fold the balance of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture using a spatula, 
     combined well.
8.   Pour batter into the pan, bake at preheated oven at 160C for 50 mins.
9.   Remove cake from oven and cool on a wire rack (don't need to invert the cake).
10. Once cake is slightly cool down (10-15 mins), remove cake from cake tin (use a thin 
      and flat spatula to run around the side and bottom of the cake). Let it cool completely 
      on a wire rack.


Blueberry Whipping Cream Frosting
250g whipping cream
80g-90g blueberries filling

Method: Beat whipping cream and blueberries filling over the high speed till peak stiff and store in fridge at least 20 minutes before decorating.

Garnish 
1 packet of raspberries
1 packet of blueberries
A bunch of fresh mint leaf 

Method:
1.  Slice the sponge cake into half. Spread a layer of frosting on top of first layer .
2.  Spread frosting on another layer, then place it on top of first layer.
3. Spread the remaining frosting over sides and top of cake, and finish with a garnish  
    of raspberries, blueberries and mint leaves.


Happy Sharing !!!
