It was only a matter of time before I made another Grinch Designed Cake. In this recipe I’m combining my love for baking and love for Christmas, and specifically, my love for the Grinch. I am using my regular Designed Swiss Roll recipe to make this Grinch Designed Cake. I filled the cake with layers of whipped cream and white chocolate peppermint pieces to add a delicious, festive touch.
Making Your Stencil
I am using edible markers to draw/ trace my stencil onto my parchment paper. It’s important to make sure that your parchment paper is cut to fit the inside of your pan perfectly. I am using an 8″ circle pan for this recipe. I placed my pan on top of my parchment paper then used an edible marker to trace my pan. Then I cut out my parchment paper from the circle I traced.
Now that my parchment paper fits my pan perfectly, I use my edible marker again to draw/ trace my image onto my prepared parchment paper. To trace the design onto your parchment paper, you can either print out the image you want to trace or trace it from a tablet screen. Whatever works best for you!
We are using our cake batter dyed different colors to then trace our design. I am using tipless piping bags to pipe my cake batter onto my parchment paper.
The two layers of cake underneath the grinch designed cake are undesigned layers of cake. This is because, well – no one will see them! So there is not point in making designs on your cake tht will be covered with whipped cream and more cake on top 🙂
While mixing the first half of the batter, the egg yolk mixture, you’ll notice that the batter becomes very thick after sifting in the dry ingredients. This is totally normal. Don’t panic. Simply use a whisk to mix this matter to get out any lumps.
