Decorated Cakes

Cakes.... m obsessed to them~ well not just eating them but making them as well. If  I have to bake a decorated cake i start planning for it months before and trust me i NEVER make what i plan. The end result is absolutely altered.
The urge to reach perfection keeps on aggravating with every cake Ive made. Here is a sneak peak to my recent requisite. 

I have used a basic chocolate cake in all these 3 cakes. Here is the recipe for the sponge:

Eggless Chocolate Cake

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar (add 1/4 cup more if not using frosting)
1/2 cup plain yogurt / curd
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt if using unsalted butter
Milk (as required)

 Pre-heat oven to  max  for about 15 min. Grease a your cake pan,. Sift together flour, salt , cocoa powder and baking powder 
 Mix sugar and butter at room temperature whisk well until frothy. Once frothy, add yogurt and vanilla. Mix well.
 Fold in the flour mixture and whisk until combined. The batter should be free flowing paste.. if it look thick at this stage add milk gradually until u reach the desired consistency. 
 Transfer batter to the greased tray and bake for 45 mins or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. 
Cool completely and frost if required.

Here i have used whipped cream for the frosting, and just changed the essence in them for a different flavor.
The characters were made of Fondant.
