When it comes to baking and specially a cake with the alphabet C, I can only think of chocolate. Yes, I have a Chocolate Cake with a spotted chocolate collar for the third day of A to Z Baking around the World.

There are so many country specified cakes with the alphabet C, but I was stuck on this one and when checking for country specification I was lost. Most chocolate cakes are specified to US, Germany and France.

I made a sinful chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and filling, garnished it with shredded chocolate and made a chocolate spotted collar.

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Collar

Ingredients

200 gms all purpose flour

400 gms condensed milk

4 tbsp cocoa powder

4 tbsp butter, room temperature

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

200 ml aerated drink

 

Method

Sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.

Mix butter and condensed milk.

Add flour mix and aerated drink to this mix.

Beat the ingredients till a smooth batter is formed.

Pour into a lined greased baking tin.

Bake at 180 deg C for 30 -35 minutes or till done.

 

For Moistening

1/4 cup coke

1 tsp chocolate essence

Mix the two .

 

For Filling and Frosting 

400 gms chocolate

200 gms whipping cream

4 tbsp butter

Melt the chocolate and cream.

Add butter and remove from fire.

Let it come to room temperature.

 

For the Chocolate Collar

Milk chocolate

Dark chocolate

Use a piece of string to measure the circumference of your cake.

Measure how high you’d like the collar to go.

Cut a strip of baking paper the same length and height and place on a flat surface.

Melt milk chocolate in a double boiler till it melts. Place in a piping bag. Pipe circles on the baking paper. Set aside to set .

Pour the tempered dark chocolate over the complete strip, smear with a spatula and allow to set.

Let the chocolate collar sit undisturbed until the chocolate loses its sheen and has set, but not dried or become hard.

Lift the collar gently and wrap it around the cake, removing the strip.

 

Assembling the Cake

Once the cake is baked, let it cool .

Cut the cake in two layers.

Moisten the cake with coke on both sides.

Spread the filling and place the other half of the cake on top.

( I did not fill the cake with frosting, but ideally we should for a more sinful taste .)

Spread the rest of the frosting on top, you need not be very neat on it as we are going to garnish it with chocolate.

Make the chocolate collar and wrap it around the cake.

Garnish with shredded chocolate.
