A few days ago it was Festus's 6th birthday.We've celebrated with a play in the park, special meals for everyone and cake, of course we had cake. We had a lot of things to do with work and went in the park when it was quite dark, so I didn't take pictures.
I'm going to share the cake recipe, a Red Velvet doggy cake.
Ingredients for the sponge:
- 1 packed of cooked beetroot of 300g
- 60g self raising flour
- 1 egg
- 1 banana, mashed
- 4 spoons of oil
Ingredients for the cream cheese:
- 100g reduced fat soft cheese
- 1 banana
Preheat the oven at 200C/180C fan.
To make the sponge, mash the beetroot in the food processor with its juice. Tip the beetroot mash in a bowl and add the mashed banana, the flour, the oil and the egg. Mix by hand with a spoon until all the ingredients are blended together.
Scoop the batter into a silicone baking tray. Bake it for 25-30 minutes.
When the cake is baked, take it out of the oven and leave it for a minute. Then remove it for the baking tray and leave it to cool completely on a cooling rack.
To make the cream cheese, mix the soft cheese by hand until it becomes smoother. Then add 1/2 of the banana mashed and mix it thoroughly.
Ice the cake with the cream cheese and decorate it with the remaining slices of banana.
