With Christmas is almost here, and just a few days away, I thought I would do one more Christmas tutorial this week. Now if you’re anything like me, I really like the idea of serving a Christmas pudding, but if I’m completely honest I would much prefer a Chocolate cake. So for this weeks tutorial I am going to show you how I made a chocolate cake look like a Christmas pudding.
This cake was baked in a glass Pyrex bowl, or you could use a sphere cake tin. The cake measured 6 inches along the bottom of the cake and I used my chocolate cupcake recipe, but added all the ingredients into the bowl, rather than separating them out into individual cupcake cases.
To cover the cake I used the chocolate fondant by Renshaw, which smelt and tastes amazing and goes perfectly with a chocolate cake!
This cake was a special cake for me as it was actually the last cake I filmed in the kitchen in the photo above as we are moving house. I have been baking in this kitchen for 10 years, so I am really going to miss it, but I am looking forward to making our new kitchen my own and work out where to put my cake bits.
I really hope you like this Christmas cake and will enjoy watching how how to make it. Below you will find the full video tutorial. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, wherever you are in the world.
