red wine chocolate cake recipe:
RED WINE CHOCOLATE CAKE
2 cups (260g) all purpose flour
2 cups (414g) sugar
3/4 cup (85g) Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
1 cup (240ml) vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup (240ml) sweet red wine
-sift all dry ingredients together. Place in mixing bowl and add wet ingredient one at a time, mixing between each addition. Bake about 30 minutes at 300 degrees or till tests done.
red wine buttercream icing recipe:
1 cup red wine
2 sticks butter, softened
3 cups confectioner’s sugar
Whip the butter till creamy, add the powdered sugar, then slowly add the wine. You may need to add more powdered sugar to get desired consistency. You can't mess this up. It's more or a "to taste" recipe than follow the ingredients exactly recipe.
I used a red wine ganache for filling - here is the recipe if you want to use it:
1 cup heavy cream
2 ½ cups dark chocolate chopped
3 tbsp red wine
In a small sauce pot, heat heavy cream over medium heat until steaming. Remove from heat and add 2 ½ cups chopped dark chocolate. Let sit for 10 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Add 3 tbsp red wine and whisk until smooth again. The longer you let your finished ganache sit, the thicker it will be. Let sit till icing consistency, then fill cake.
I'm a cake baker that decided to make YouTube videos showing step-by-step instructions on HOW TO MAKE cake decorations yourself. I have not had any formal training in making cakes or decorations. I did not go to a culinary school. I have never worked in a bakery. Everything I do is done, right here in my own kitchen. I am simply self-taught. I 'm just a regular person that really enjoys making cakes & cake decorations, and I love to see the excitement on people's faces when they see my cakes. Follow along and you can also turn a "meh" cake into an "amazing" cake right in your own kitchen!
FOCUS ON THE CAKE DECORATIONS
I've learned that beautiful sculpted cakes are very impressive, but they are also not something everyone can do or afford.
This is why I like to focus on cake decorations. Cake decorations are the first impression when you first see a cake. They create excitement and give the WOW factor that people remember and talk about. I want to teach everyone that you do not need a bakery, or expensive specially tools to create that excitement. I use a handful of basic tools and the show the right cake decorations can totally change the impression of even a store bought cake.
Making cake decorations really isn’t hard if you can see how they are made. I walk you through all the steps and even teach you a few tricks I have learned over the years. Sometimes while editing I think of things I should have done, and give suggestions on how to make them even nicer.
My cake decorations are made with gum paste are are completely edible. I make a lot of kids favorites like superheros, video game and cartoon characters, but I also make decorations for retirement parties, baby showers, weddings, and more. Pretty much anything can be made!
