The bomb is dropped

The kittens sort of soften the blow.

this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post

not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.

BOOM. So many people on this website need to read this twice, let it sink in and then read it again.

Kuroshitsuji Cookbook:

  • Title: Fancy Little Jam Cakes
  • Episode/Chapter: That Butler, The Busiest [Ep. n/a, Chp. 5]

Information:

  • Yield: 8 servings
  • There are multiple kuro entries for each recipe in the anime/manga. Check out my ‘kuroshitsuji cookbook’ tag for more.
  • Image and recipe source are the same.

Recipe:

Ingredients: 

Cakes:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup full fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream
  • Jam(s) of your choice (I made blueberry, blackberry and red raspberry)

Buttercream:

  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar - the finest you can find (usually 10x)
  • 1 tsp.  vanilla extract
  • * Milk or heavy cream, optional

Decoration:

  • 2 cups (about 1/2 lb.) ready-made white fondant
  • Blue, black, rose, and lavender gel food color
  • Plastic food service gloves
  • Gold luster dust
  • Small cup of water
  • Culinary stencil or other plastic non-toxic craft stencil
  • Small soft-hair artist’s brush

Directions:

Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour six 4-inch round spring-form cake pans, or use a flour-based baking spray such as Bake Easy.
  • Beat together sugar and butter until lightened. Add the eggs one at a time, then increase mixer speed to high for two minutes or until batter is light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, almond extract, salt, baking powder and soda; beat for another minute and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Stir together yogurt and sour cream in a small bowl. Beginning and ending with flour, alternately add the flour and yogurt mixture. Beat well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat again briefly.
  • Spoon batter into the pans. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cake springs back when pressed in the center. Let cakes cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Level each cake with a serrated knife, and then cut each cake in half. Fill a cake half with 1-2 tablespoons jam and replace with remaining cake piece. Let cakes stand uncovered while you make the buttercream.

Buttercream:

  • In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix together the butter and confectioners’ sugar.  Begin mixing on low speed until crumbly, and then increase to high and beat for 3 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Frost the top and sides of each cake with the buttercream.
  • *Note: If you find the buttercream is too stiff, you may add milk or heavy cream 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture is piping consistency.

Assembly and Decoration:

  • Lightly grease a work surface with white vegetable shortening.  Knead in 1/2 teaspoon blue gel food color and 1 small dot of black gel food color to a 2/3 cup piece of white fondant. Knead in additional food color if needed to achieve a deep blue saturation. Roll half of the piece out on the greased surface. Lift piece with a rolling pin (or your hands – it’s small enough) and drape over a cake. Smooth fondant down and around the cake and trim the excess with a sharp knife.  Repeat process a second cake .  Repeat the process tinting 2/3 portion of the fondant with lavender food color, and then the last 2/3 portion with rose.
  • Place a stencil on top of each cake. Tap out a little gold dust onto a clean plate.  Dip the paintbrush into water and then into the luster dust; work it into a paint-like paste on the plate with the brush.  Repeat dipping/working until your brush is loaded with luster dust “paint”.  Gently apply in even strokes over the stencil.  Carefully lift stencil to reveal the design.
