The midnight baking itch came and we baked ourselves a huge piece of mango cake. This was done with our favourite Fruit Paradise mango tart in mind.
It was just four easy steps to bake this yummy cake for beginners!
1) We used Betty Crockers’ yellow cake mix to bake the cake according to the instructions on the box
2) After the cake has cooled down from the oven, we cut the mango into thin slices
3) Whipped a can of full cream to get whipped cream. (2 important tips we learnt: always make sure your can of full cream is cold and do not attempt to whip this without a mixer unless you want a full 1 hour arm workout)
4) Spread the whipped cream on the cake before placing the mangoes on top.
Looks aside, the cake tastes great! The most difficult part was cutting the mangoes into equal size and placing them neatly on the cake. We are definitely going to attempt this again with other fruits and use a baking pan that allows us to slice the cake horizontally. It will taste even better with more cream and chopped fruits between layers of cake! Hmm maybe we should attempt to add a layer of jelly on the mango too. 🙂
Do drop us some tips/suggestions if you have any!
