Confetti Cake

Confetti Cake! Not just your regular confetti funfetti cake but with an extra sneaky ingredient. Ruby chocolate, Have you guys tried it? It has a mild berryish flavour like a berry+ white chocolate flavor! Its that month of the year, you can make it for Valentine’s day. Or you can just make it for yourself and have a big fat slice of it all for yourself. 

If you cannot find ruby chocolate, you can use white chocolate instead of ruby chocolate. Add a teaspoon of rosewater for a little extra added flavour! I bought ruby chocolate in Vancouver here.

Ruby Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream

  1. In a bowl on a pan on simmering water, melt the ruby chocolate and keep it aside once its completely melted.

  2. In a bowl add the egg whites and sugar, using the same pan of simmering water. Keep whisking until the sugar is completely dissolved. Rub the mixture between your fingertips to check if the sugar is fully dissolved.

  3. Transfer this mixture to the bowl attached to the stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Whisk the mixture until glossy and stiff also check to see if the bowl is cooled.

  4. Add the butter cubes one at a time while whisking. Keep whisking until the frosting comes together. If the frosting looks like its splitting nothing to worry keep whisking it should come together.

  5. If too runny, chill in the fridge for a few minutes and then try whisking again this should fix the Swiss meringue buttercream

Assembly

  2. Add a layer of frosting on the cake and smoothen with an offset spatula. Repeat for other layers.

  4. Chill the cake again and Sprinkle more confetti sprinkles on the cake.
