August Scratch-off - MUD CAKE! - Page 7

post #91 of 183
I guess I'll stick with APF to keep true to the qualities of a mudcake. Syrup is what I call the melted chocolate, butter.

Sooooo, here we are 8 months down the track and i thought i would stop by and ask - :anyone still making Mud Cakes?

As some know due to me posting a thread about why i have been absent - i curious if any of you make mud cakes as a regular option for your customers.and if so - are you finding them to be popular?

Me....yes, still making them more than any other cake - as a matter of fact i have an order for Sunday - White Chocolate Mud Cupcakes.... i will use a white cvhovolate ganache as a filling for them - i just pipe it in using a small piping nozzle - then spread some across the top before putting my fondant lid on each cupcake.
Is anyone else doing that when making Mud Cupcakes?

It works extremely well no matter which type of mud cake you use - or whether you make a cake or cupcakes.

I made a White Chocolate Mudcake last month (the recipe that called for golden syrup, can't seem to find that recipe for some reason) and filled it with white chocolate SMBC, covered it with vanillla bean SMBC. It was a hit. I walked by a group of ladies once and one of them described me as "the one who made that white chocolate cake." LOL.

Yes, great to see that the *Mud Cake* is being made by more and more Cakers...

EDIT: Turns out my review wasn't for a true Pam's mudcake. Well, back to the oven I go...

vgcea - it's commonly thought that mudcakes are better after being frozen, so it should only get better icon_smile.gif I'm surprised you described it as crumbly though, did you torte it too soon? The chocolate needs time to re-harden, then it's usually nice and firm. Mudcake is a dream to carve, very little problem with crumbles at all.

Zespri, I too was surprised it crumbled. I totally was not expecting that. I baked it last night, left it in the pan (top covered with plastic wrap) at room temp, and torted this morning. I can not imagine why this happened. The cocoa I used was a baking bar with I believe 68% cocoa. Butter was Plugra.

Maybe someone can help figure out what went wrong. The banana cake held a nice carvable texture but not the dark chocolate.

EDIT: I figured out what I did wrong icon_redface.gif I started out wanting to make the Planet Cake recipe, made the syrup for that and while it was cooling, went about my business snooping around this thread... and then changed my mind and went for Pam's BUT forgot to tweak the melted chocolate mixture icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gif . Lawd, I'm so special. Okay so my review isn't for a true Pam's mudcake after all. Totally deleting that entry icon_lol.gif

Pleased to read that you enjoyed the Mud Cakes.
Another style of cake to offer to your customers/family.
Wonderful cakes to stack - and when your cakes are torted, filled and then crumbcoated with Ganache you will find that they stay moist for days.
By adding different flavours (peppermint/coffee/cherry for example) you now have a very versitile cake batter.
Thank you for coming back to this thread and *reporting your findings*
Appreciate it icon_smile.gif



AZCouture - The courses aren't cheap - so brag away thumbs_up.gificon_smile.gif - look forward to hearing what you thought of the course and your views of the Mud Cakes

Bluehue - she's not doing the Planet Cake course in Australia - actually don't even think it is Planet Cake that is doing them - it is Jessica Pedemont (PC staff) that is teaching at Baking Arts in ... ??? San Diego? (guess LOL)

It will be fantastic! Faye Cahills girls have taught there too - at long last a little bit of Australia is on offer for all that want to learn

Can't wait to see what Jamie comes up with after completing these cake courses!

Excited for HER!!

Ahem - Baking Arts is in San Francisco icon_biggrin.gif

I have had chocolate mud, but I didn't make it. It was very, very tasty. But I love my regular chocolate cake so I'm keeping mine. I keep meaning to make white chocolate mud but I have not gotten around to it yet . But I will!

Maybe next week - I've been seeing an increase in requests for white chocolate anything.
