If you are looking for birthday baking ideas, look no further than the sweet and simple comfort of cake. It is the one food that we can prepare and bake together as a family, and yet still have something delicious and unique on our special day. If you have ever had a sweet tooth, then cake making is the perfect solution to satisfy your craving. It does not only taste great, it can give us pleasure and is a great stress reliever! There are plenty of fun and easy to follow cake recipes out there that can bring a smile to anyone’s face.
When it comes to cake tins, most people opt for the traditional round, square or rectangular cake tins. They are available in many different shapes and sizes. The most popular shape is the circular cake tin, which is easy to handle and bake. These tins can be filled with fondant and decorated with fondant, icing, or candy or edible treats of your choice. The traditional fondant is made from eggs and butter, but now many recipes are using unsalted butter, nuts, dried fruit, or powdered sugar to create a delicious dessert.
Another option available for cake tins are the electric whisk. A good electric whisk can be used for a variety of different desserts including cakes, ice cream, cookies, brownies, and so much more. Use the whisk to add the ingredients, beat them thoroughly, and then immediately pour over the cake mixture. This is a quick and easy solution that produces a quality end product.
To create a blueberry crumble cake, take 3 cups of dry milk and add one tablespoon of vanilla extract. Turn out the electric whisk into a bowl, and gradually add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients, blending thoroughly as you go. When done, turn off the electric whisk and spoon the blueberries into a pastry pan, and add enough fondant to cover the entire cake. Let the cake set for about an hour, until it is completely set and smooth.
Making a blueberry crumble cake is very similar to making a blueberry muffin. Start with a traditional blueberry muffin recipe, and just substitute blueberry juice for water. Mix the dry ingredients into the muffin batter. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, and pop into the oven. Once the cake is baked, remove it from the muffin cups and cut the cake into small pieces.

For this cake, we used an unsalted butter cream cheese, a tablespoon of vanilla extract, and two to three tablespoons of blueberries. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, line two 9 inch round cake tins with plain white icing. Pour the blueberries onto the top of the tins, and then using a butter cream cheese spreader, apply half of the fondant icing to the bottom layer of cake. Top with a second layer of white icing, and then cover with the rest of the blueberries. Turn the oven off, and let the cake cool to room temperature.
Now that you’ve covered the cake with your blueberries, it’s time to decorate it. Using a food coloring spray made especially for blueberries, paint all of the sections of the cake in a light blue. You can draw a star pattern or just move around the blueberries as you desire. You can also make the blueberries stand out by placing the star over a blue dish of water.
