Be it birthdays, anniversaries, mother’s day or father’s day, none of the celebrations is complete without a cake. It was mother’s day, in order to surprise my mother I ordered a cake from Fruit Culture Bakery. I am very particular about the delivery and the taste of cakes. It had happened in the past, that due to delivery being delayed, my whole party went for a toss. Thus for me, taste and delivery services are of paramount importance.
I placed an order for black forest cake, with an endearing message for my mother. The delivery was sharp on time and the cake looked freshly baked.
Before I go into the cake review, would educate my readers’ little bit about Black Forest Cake.
Black Forest cake has multiple (usually 4) layers of chocolate sponge cake, cherries, and whipped cream. It is frosted with whipped cream and covered with chocolate shavings and a few cherries for decoration. It is also called Schwarzwderkirschtorte in German, which means Black Forest Cherry Torte or Gateau.
The general way of making Black Forest Cake, is in a large bowl, combine flour, 2 cups sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add eggs, milk, oil, and 1 tablespoon vanilla; beat until well blended. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake it for 35 minutes.
Does this sound simple? Trust me baking it is not if cocoa powder is not put in the right combination, it will make the cake bitter or tasteless. So a baker needs to pay attention to even minutest of things, before baking the finest cake.
Thankfully Fruit Culture Bakery- delivered the yummiest of Black Forest Cake. The cream was nicely whipped, with proper proportions of cocoa powder in it. Thus making the cake fluffy and tasty. Even after finishing the cake, the craving remained.
This is not the first time I have ordered the cake from the bakery and like old times, it met my expectations well.
Would definitely recommend this bakery for cakes, they also bake birthday cakes with different themes like minion, Shin Chen, Doremon, Frozen etc. They are not highly priced like other leading brands.
So what are you waiting for, pick up the phone and book your cake?
