Almost everyone loves the chocolate-y goodness that is the Rocky Road Bar. I’m obviously a part of the majority, but I slightly tweaked the recipe which I got from Odlums website, to suit my taste. Maybe you might prefer it as well. I put my adjustments in brackets next to the original ingredients.
So here is the recipe I used for my brothers guitar cake below. The only adjustment I made was doubling the amount of Oreo’s it originally said to use and using chocolate filled Oreo. I had to make three or four batches to construct the guitar shape. It was extremely fun making it and very rewarding afterwards to see all of his friends in shock when we came in with the cake and sparks shooting up from the firework-like candles! I found this delicious recipe; take a look yourself!
226g of Stork
266g of caster sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
20 crushed chocolate crème Oreo cookies
4 medium eggs
270g of self-raising flour
1 pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of milk
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree’s (fan assisted)
Beat the stork in a baking bowl until light and fluffy
Add sugar and vanilla essence to butter and beat together until well mixed
Add eggs, one at a time and mix until mixture has doubled in size
Add flour and salt and mix thoroughly
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then add in the milk
Mix again until all ingredients are well incorporated
Add in your 8 crushed Oreo cookies
Pour mixture into your pre-greased baking tin
Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Sponge is ready when a skewer inserted in to the mixture comes out clean with no bits attached
Once removed from oven, leave it to cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Back in early June, I attempted my very first professional-looking cake for my little brothers 18th birthday. Not to bad for a first-timer aye’? I was delighted with it. I didn’t do it all on my own thought! I had help from two of my dearest friends who helped with the design of the icing. The cake itself was a Oreo chocolate sponge while the icing was a white sugar fondant that I got in Decobake bachelors walk. I would definitely modify the recipe of the sponge the next time, it definitely needed more Oreo! Practice makes perfect.
