Hello everyone, I hope your weekend has been great so far.
Have you been baking this weekend? I’d love to see your baked goods, please post a pic on my facebook page, or share your baking pics using #passionforbaking on Instagram.
Now let’s get baking, I love a white cake. I decorated this cake with Vanilla bean frosting and some mini pink and white coconut marshmallows.
This Pretty in pink coconut cake is one of my absolute favorites…
White vanilla cake
- 5 large egg whites (at room temperature)
- 1/3 cup (75 ml) milk (room temperature)
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup (350 g) regular sugar
- 2 1/4 cups (290 g) all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
- 3/4 cup (170 g) unslated butter, cubed (at room temperature)
Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F (180 ˚C).
Grease and flour two 8-inch (20 cm) cake pans.
Put the egg whites, milk and vanilla into a bowl and stir to mix.
Sift the flour, corn starch, salt and baking powder at least 3 times.
Tip the flour mixture into a mixing bowl with the sugar and mix for about 1 minute.
Add the cubed butter and beat until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.
Pour in the egg white/milk mixture, beating on medium speed for 1 minutes.
Divide the batter between the two cake pans. I use my kitchen scales here to make sure the cakes are equally sized.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-35 minutes, checking with a cake tester after 20.
Leave to cool completely.
Divide the cakes in two horizontally and fill with vanilla bean frosting, you can find the recipe here.
Make the mini marshmallows before starting this cake, or buy ready made marshmallows.
You can find the recipe for these Christmas Mallows here.
I used a slightly smaller mold for these marshmallows, but you could just as well just grease a sheet of baking paper and pipe the mixture directly onto the paper. Sprinkle with finely ground desiccated coconut and leave to dry for 15 minutes before rolling into the coconut a second time.
Decorate the cake with the marshmallows.
Ready to serve.
Decorating with both white and pink marshmallows really makes such a difference…
I hope you are tempted, have a wonderful day everyone!
Hugs from me to you.
