Easy Soccer Ball cake

This soccer ball cake is easy to make.  To create the soccer ball shape I used a approximately 8" Stainless steel bowl, and an 8" round cake pan. You may use glass bowl but you have to reduce cooking time. 
This is how I assembled my soccer cake.



Do not worry about your icing job being not so smooth all of the choco icing will be covered by the white and black icing..

Frozen Themed Cake

The weather was a shock to the system that week.  One minute it was a perfect fall day plus 10 weather then the following day it was winter.  It sounded like a scene from the Frozen movie except summer became winter.










I love to hear from you guys.  Please leave a comment, subscribe to my blog, and I can also be found on youtube.  Danceycake.



Peppermint Challenge - Peppermint Essential Oil Vs. Peppermint Extract

Today I experimented with peppermint essential oil and peppermint extract.  I want to know which one of the two type flavourings results in a more flavourful, scrumptious peppermint brownie.   In the video my friend Stephanie and I split a regular brownie recipe in half.  We flavoured one half with peppermint essential oil and the other with peppermint extract.  In order to have an unbiased opinion we conducted a blind taste test in which our test subject (our kiddos) were given 2 types of brownies.  They have no idea the type of peppermint flavouring added to the brownies.  We asked them to have a sip of water in between brownies.  After the taste test we asked them which brownies they like better and why.



If you are curious about the recipe here it is.  The resulting recipe yields one 8" by 8" brownies.
