Harry Potter Birthday Cake
Just a few years in the past, Ryan and I took the youngsters again house to Southern California for a much-needed household trip. We spent per week on the seashore, watched our beloved Dodgers play at Chavez Ravine, visited buddies, and loved a full day at Universal Studios.
Universal Studios was positively a spotlight of the journey as a result of it was our first time going to Harry Potter Land and experiencing Butterbeer.
To be trustworthy, I used to be a little bit skeptical that I’d like Butterbeer. I’m not an enormous fan of butterscotch. But, WOW! It didn’t disappoint! We have been suggested by many to get the frozen model of the drink and it was completely scrumptious. So good, in truth, that we went again to Harry Potter Land a second time to get one other spherical of drinks on the finish of the day.
As I drank my Butterbeer, all I might take into consideration was how I might flip this superb drink right into a cake. Of course, there’s butterscotch, however I additionally beloved the creamy foam on prime. It tasted like marshmallow fluff!
Here’s a hyperlink to make your personal Butterbeer.
Once house, I bought proper to work on my Butterbeer Cake. It took me a pair tries on the cake layers, however I’m so proud of the outcomes. The cake itself is tender and moist, and stuffed with butterscotch taste.
The key to creating the cake so gentle and fluffy is the blending time firstly. After you’ve added the eggs to the butter and sugar, be certain that to combine on medium-high pace for a couple of minutes, ensuring to scrape down the perimeters of the bowl every so often.
But when it’s time so as to add the dry components, flip the mixer to low and hold your mixing time brief. Over mixing your cake batter will trigger it to sink when it’s baking.
The drip on this cake is a little bit totally different than different drips I’ve achieved. I first tried including heavy cream to my butterscotch chips however felt like that took away from the butterscotch taste.
I then tried butterscotch sauce, like the type you pour on ice cream, with my butterscotch chips to make the drip and was a lot happier with the end result.
The drip is a little bit thicker and extra like caramel, so I really used a spoon to pour it over the perimeters of the cake. I additionally added the butterscotch caramel sauce in between every layer too.
And to resemble Butterbeer much more, I added do-it-yourself marshmallow cream to the highest of my Butterbeer Cake! You’ll keep in mind this marshmallow fluff from my Ultimate S’mores Cake. It’s tremendous simple to make however that is the final ingredient you’ll wish to do. It doesn’t maintain properly at room temp for too lengthy. I’d counsel making the fluff and placing it on the cake as near serving time as doable.
I hope you like this Butterbeer Cake as a lot as I do!
