My customised cream and cookies cake | lego friends cake |#foodiefriday 

Yesterday, we went to London to celebrate our niece 7th birthday. She loves chocolate cake and a fan of lego friends, so I came up an idea to customised my cream and cookies cake to a lego friends cake.

The recipe was adopted from Heart of Mary cream and cookies cake

Here is the recipe copied from her website. 

COOKIES AND CREAM CAKE (recipe suitable for an 8″ round, 3″ high pan)
Chocolate Chiffon cake
Ingredients:

A}

1 cup minus 2 tablespoons sifted cake flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 1/2 teaspoons coffee powder *optional

1/3 cup sugar
B}

4 egg yolks (from large eggs, room temperature)

1/4 cup canola or corn oil

1/3 cup water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
{C}

4 egg whites

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
{D}

1/2 cup sugar
Procedure:

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.

2. In a large bowl, combine {A} well. Add in {B}. Beat with electric mixer or by hand until smooth and well blended.

3. In a separate bowl, beat {C} on high speed until frothy. Gradually add in the sugar {D} and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Gradually and gently fold in egg whites into egg yolk mixture. Pour batter into an ungreased 8” round, 3” high pan.

4. Bake for about 50 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Invert pan into wire rack immediately and cool completely.

5. To release cake from pan, carefully run a thin knife around sides of pan and invert onto your cake board or plate.
**Just a note: This cake is very light and not as chocolatey as you might prefer so feel free to use your favourite chocolate cake recipe instead!
Cookies and Cream Frosting
Ingredients:

1 cup whipping cream, chilled

1/4 cup granulated white sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

125g cream cheese (1/2 bar)

about 15 Oreo cookies
1. Remove the cream center from 4-5 cookies then crush the cookies in a food processor. (It’s up to you if you want your crumbs to be coarse or fine. I prefer them to be quite fine so I can pipe out my frosting). Set aside. 

2. On a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Set aside.

3. Using chilled bowl and beaters, beat the whipping cream, sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks. Carefully fold in the cream cheese then beat mixture on high speed for a few seconds or just until everything is combined. Do not overbeat.

3. Lastly, fold in the crushed cookies. The frosting should look much like cookies and cream ice cream. The tiny crumbs should still be quite distinct from the whipped cream.
Another note: I actually made a full batch of this recipe (double the amounts given here) but had a lot of leftover after I was done frosting the cake. If you are a whipped cream frosting lover, you might consider making the full batch.
To assemble cake:

Slice cake horizontally into 2 equal layers. Invert cake top such that the cut side is facing up. Spread a generous amount of frosting then top with the remaining cake layer, cut side down. Use remaining frosting to cover the entire cake surface. Pipe out borders if desired and top with remaining Oreo cookies.
To make a larger 10″ cake, just double the recipe.

Here is my finish cake with the birthday celebrant. 


In customising, all you need to do is edit a picture of the celebrant with a character of their choices to be added and I use the app pic collage. Copy and save a picture from the internet. ( eg. Lego friends ) then add the birthday celebrants picture on it when editing on the app.

Then print it off 


Use the printed poster as a cake topper background then just add a toys as a topper to make it personalised. 

So that’s it, you can also order a personalised cake topper from eBay 🙂 

Hope you like this week’s #foodiefriday post.
