A note on my recipes
Currently in Australia, the most popular cake base used for wedding cakes is the mud cake. When i first started making cakes, I had no idea how to make a mud cake. About 10 years ago i tried my first one out of the Women's Weekly magazine, the cake turned out awful, it was bland, and dense and horrible.
I gave up for a while sticking to the traditional Uruguayan style of cake, but then when I got more serious about baking, I decided to experiment with mud cakes again. A friend of mine gave me a little book by the Women's Weekly magazine named "Chocolate Cakes".
I tried a few recipes out of it that i really liked.
Then one day i tried the chocolate mud at a tasting for a customer and she said it just wasn't chocolately enough. I played with the recipe and came up with my own, the customer loved it and so have many others after her.
Most of the recipes I use now (except for the fruit cake recipe), are recipes that i've developed myself.
I have found that i enjoy the baking process even more than the decorating, although the satisfaction you get from seeing other's reactions to a finished cake, is incomparable.
In this section you will find are a few of my favourite recipes. Enjoy!!! and let me know if you have any questions.
NOTE: In order to get consistent results when baking from scratch, it is important to use scales to measure your ingredients, you can find scales that measure in grams/pounds/ounces on eBAY for excellent prices. I bought mine for AU$50 including shipping. I LOVE IT, and it weighs up to 7kg/14pounds.
