Henna Art Cake

Mehndi Cake

Hello Sweeties!!! Ms. Ash celebrated her birthday and also her wedding anniversary last week. To mark both these occasions, we went for a Japanese Hibachi Dinner and then dessert at home.

 I had attempted an henna tatto cake last year. Indian weddings and Henna is a hand in glove combo. No wedding theme can be complete without henna playing an important role.


This is a Simple Vanilla Cake from the boxed mix with  homemade strawberry jelly filling, frosted with chocolate ganache and Henna art piped with mango infused whipped cream and white choc frosting.

Chocolate Ganache
**I did not use any alcohol in my Frosting.

Bake the cake as per the package directions and cool to be frosted. Slit the cake and  tort the levels, cover with the strawberry jam filing. and cover with the ganache. Cool and store in fridge for later use.

Mango Frosting
You will need; 1 cup heavy whipping cream 15 pieces of white chocolate wafers ( I use wilton chocolate wafers) 1 tbspn conf sugar 1/2 tbspn concentrated mango pulp  1/2 tspn cardamom/elaichi powder
In a bowl, mix in the concentrated pulp with 1/4 cup cream, add the elaichi powder and set aside.
In anr glass bowl, take the chocolate wafers, add in leftover cup cream and  melt in a microwave for 30 seconds, stirring once in between at 15 seconds. The melting time will depend on how powerful your microwave is. Use  your judgement and  melt the chocolate wafers.
In the same mixing bowl, cream the chocolate mixture and the mango pulp mixture, Pipe the henna art on the ganache frosted cake.

Do let me know your comments and views on my henna inspired art cake.
