Drip cakes are becoming more and more popular with you guys, but what are they, exactly?
Not to be confused with Dripping Cake (a traditional British bread which has dried fruit spices, and beef dripping in the ingredients - check out this blog from Glamourous Glutton), a drip cake is simply a cake with a drip effect on the top. The drip is normally a chocolate ganache with a cream base, but I have made it with white chocolate and strawberry rose before. I've made vegan drip cakes before, and they're oil-based instead of using cream.
The creme egg drip cake pictures to the left was a treat I made for friends at Easter. Check out my 'How to cut a creme egg in half' blog, inspired by that cake!
The cake above left is a birthday cake for one of my regulars - she's vegan but her husband loves white chocolate, so his lovely wife asked me for a white chocolate drip cake and sacrificed her own need for a slice of cake! I kind of liked how unpredictable the white chocolate ganache was in terms of the shape it help when dripping.
The strawberry cake is a tequila rose cake, made with stacks of tequila and lots of chantilly cream. This was the runniest drip I've ever done, but it worked really well on the cold cake. YUM!
Chocolate or fruity, drip cakes are always totally delicious and a great centrepiece for a party. Order yours today!
