I made these cakes as Christmas gifts to my church members using my Chocolate Moist Cake recipe.
The words were done with Royal Icing (I think they're called that, I got the recipe from snooping around a book fair when I was 15).
Baked them in round foil pans
And I didn't have enough pans, so I baked them in mini loaf pans, and wrapped the sides to hide the ugliness.
I asked my sister in law to pass to them on Sunday, as I can't make it to church that day.
And on Christmas day, which was 2 days later, I recieved lotsa good comments and people asking for the recipe. They said it was really moist and nice.
The Chocolate Moist Cake recipe is my first entry, do check it out, not by looking, but by trying it out yourself.
I got the recipe from http://www.bestmoistchocolatecakerecipe.com/, and did some minor modifications to it.
Royal icing recipe: (according to me..haha)
454 gm icing sugar
1 egg white
juice from 1 lemon
Mix them all together and ta-da.. start piping.
It will not harden much, due to the acidity of the lemon juice. If you want it to really harden up, replace the lemon juice with 3 tbsp water.
