How to frost a layer cake like a profesh when you aren’t one

Wotcher folks, it’s your friendly neighbourhood cosplayer/baker extraordinaire back with another baking tutorial… because I’ve got a really good handle on my blog audience, as you can tell.

I made a birthday cake for one of my best friends this weekend - and despite it being one of the hottest weekends of the year, it turned out pretty well. It was actually really straight-forward, so I filmed a few gifs of the decorating process should any of you ever fancy making a simple celebration/birthday cake.

Are you over the cheesecake incident now? Can you give us some cheesecake recipes please? :')

(( OOC: *twitches*

Fine. Cheesecake recipes. Personally I prefer the taste of non-bake cheesecakes, so they are mainly what I make. A lot of these types of recipes call for gelatin in order to make the cheesecake set - but I don’t like that either. So a tip I learnt is to use full fat ingredients, and ensure you whip them up enough so that they set properly. Clearly, this did not happen during the cheesecake incident. Here are some cheesecake recipes I’ve made:

Cookie Dough Cheesecake - The Cupcake Jemma YouTube channel is really good for all kinds of baking recipes.

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Recipe - This is from Jane’s Patisserie, all of her cheesecake recipes are great.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Salted Candied Pecans - I messed around with this recipe a lot but it was still a good starting point, and includes good instructions for candying pecans/peanuts.

Happy baking! ))
