Chocolate Cream Cake, Sponge Bob Square Pants with Patrick at Goo Lagoon

This time I would love to share my newest creation on a wonderful chocolate cream cake made for my son’s 9th B-day.

My kids are big fan of SpongeBob Square Pants cartoon so I decided to create Goo Lagoon cake with all the bells and whistles to make cake realistic as much as possible.

I handmade and hand painted: SpongeBob, Patrick, Goo Lagoon sign, ocean, life vest, crabby patties and squiggly decorations out of homemade fondant.

Sand effect was created with Nilla wafers, nicely ground.

 
Cake was Chocolate cream, six inch, wonderful, light and delicious.

Still, it took a while till we actually cut and eat the cake. Kids loved the whole look, and didn’t want to ruin the cake!! Cake was huge hit and big surprise. 
Lot’s of giggles and smiles, the whole work was so worth it.

Bake cookies until just puffed and set for about 11 minutes, before they have begun to brown around the edges. This will ensure a soft cookie!

Mini Rice Flour Donuts

Fresh, hot, homemade mini donuts. Just came out of the oven, dipped in semi sweet chocolate sauce. Most important thing- they are Gluten free, made with brown rice flour, so good.
Recently I decided to change some of my eating habits. Trying to switch and use more rice flour instead of regular flour, cut down the carbs.
Still love to bake and make all kinds of goodies but being more avare of ingredients. Less butter, use olive oil instead, less sugar, more enchanting ingredients like, almonds, vanilla or citrus zest and instead of cows milk, soy or rice milk. All this changes give amazing results and more energy. Nobody complains, everybody like it-:)

Yesterday I made bite size mini donuts using brown rice flour, olive oil, cinnamon and some semi sweet chocolate just to make them a little bit yummier.

Perfect when served with ice coffee or cold soy milk for the kids.

Ingredients:

Donuts:

1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder, gluten free
pinch of cinnamon
1 large egg
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp plain nonfat kefir

Glaze:

1/2 tsp butter
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2-3 tbsp chocolate rice milk, as needed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Whisk together all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg, sugar, oil and kefir well with mixer. Pour liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Grease the donut pan with non stick spray and fill each form half full.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan, and cool on a wire rack.
In a small saucepan or using double broiler, over low heat, heat butter and chocolate chips stirring constantly. Continue to stir, until chocolate is melted. Add few drops od milk if needed and stir till sauce is smooth.
Dip every donut in a sauce, lay on a serving plater and enjoy!
