Baking and Frosting

How to Bake a Wedding Cake:
2x 6" round cake pans
2x 8" round cake pans
2x 10" round cake pans
Cake boards (6", 8", 12")
Vanilla cake batter (or any flavour that you prefer)
Vanilla buttercream
Procedure:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease and line each pan with parchment, or wax paper.
The 6" pans will require 2 cups of batter each.
The 8" pans will require 3.5 cups of batter each.
The 10" pans will require 6 cups of batter each.
Bake the 6" pans in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Bake the 8" pans in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
Bake the 10" pans in the oven for 55-60 minutes.
Allow each to cool completely on a wire rack before proceeding to coat in buttercream.
Attach one 6" cake layer to the 6" cake board, using a swipe of buttercream to "glue" it to the board.
Cover the top of the cake with a layer of buttercream, and then place the second 6" layer on top.
Cover the whole cake in a crumb coat (thin layer) of buttercream.
Repeat for the 8" and 10" cakes.
When the crumb coat layer has crusted, you can apply the second and final layers of buttercream.
Smooth the buttercream using a metal spatula.

I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
