Tuesday March 1st 12 noon - 5.30pm

Kiwicakes is having an open house for Purple Cake Day. I am proud to be the cake decorating supplies sponsor for Purple Cake Day. I'll be selling Purple Rain (after the cocktail) cupcakes for $2.50 each, with all money going to http://www.purplecakeday.org/

Come and grab yourself a cupcake browse Kiwicakes while you're at it. In celebration I'll have some great purple specials. I don't open the doors very often in this fashion. I'd love to see you. There is no parking on Nixon st, so please park in Elizabeth street directly opposite.

For those who come dressed in purple, we'll have something extra special just for you.



Rum ball pops or any kind of truffle pop

The following recipe comes from our friends at Robert's in Australia. Here at Kiwicakes I have all the Robert's products in stock, to make these little treasures. You could also fill them with cakes balls, or from customer suggestion, blending toffee pops or oreos with cream cheese, to make a quick ball filling for the cup.
 

1 Packet of Maria Biscuits (malt biscuits, or super wine)

1 Can of Condensed Milk

2 Tbs of Cocoa Powder

1 Cup of Coconut

Truffle cup mould - click here to get one

300g Packet of White Chocolate for Base

Jar of Strawberry Fondant for Top or 300g Bag of White Chocolate

Packet of Red Cupcake Candy Hearts



Place the Maria Biscuits in a plastic bag. Grab a rolling pin, tin, wooden spoon and whack the biscuits repeatedly until they are crushed into fine biscuit crumbs (or use a food processor). I had 2 four year olds who helped me for this part and they did a wonderful job.

In a large bowl, put the crushed biscuits, condensed milk, cocoa powder and coconut. Mix until combined. If you find it too dry, add a bit of water, or a bit of rum! Otherwise hold off on adding some of the crushed biscuits until you get the consistency you lik.

Roll into small balls and put in the fridge.


Take Mould 21 and fill just over half way with white chocolate


Gently place a rolled rum ball into the melted chocolate and push down until the chocolate comes up the sides of the mould and fills to the top. Don't push too hard, otherwise chocolate will spill over the edges. Gently does it and you will get better results with practice. Let it set. Always look on the underside of the mould and if the chocolate is wet and shiny it hasn't fully set. Wait until it looks dull. Once set, ease the piece out of the mould.

To create a melted chocolate Top:
Melt chocolate (approx 300g) into a deep bowl. You can colour it if you like using our chocolate powder colour




Dip the Rum Ball with the chocolate base into the melted chocolate. Move it around until melted chocolate touches the top of the chocolate base created from the earlier step. Slowly does it for the best results. Lift the Rum Ball back out of the melted chocolate and swirl it around (holding it the right way up) so that the chocolate gets a smooth finish on top.


Finish with a Red Heart Cupcake Candy.

To create a shiny Fondant Top:
Scoop out some Fondant Creme Filling (I used Strawberry) and place into a small deep bowl. Microwave for around 5-7 seconds until it becomes a litle runny. Then dip the Rum Ball into the fondant like in step 2 - 3 above. Its thicker than chocolate so you need to be a little more patient in getting a smooth finish. Fondant Creme filling comes in lots of flavours, Peppermint, Raspberry, Strawberry or Plain (colour and flavour to suite. Easy and quick to use and looking for something sweet.


Cake Pops with different toppings. Bright Pink is the Strawberry Fondant Creme, the White is Chocolate and the middle light pink colour is white chocolate coloured with red chocolate powder colouring


They can be finished in many different ways.

2. Flo from Flo's a Scrapin  Flo and I got to know each other, when Cricut Cake was released. Flo's knowledge of all things paper related in Cricut, opened my mind to what was possible in icing and then some. I 've learnt so much from Flo.

Ingredients substitutions

An awesomely handy chart to have - from the people at the Chelsea Sugar Company

  • Self-raising flour 1 cup self-raising flour = 1 cup plain flour + 1½ teaspoons baking powder.

  • Butter 250g butter = the same quantity of margarine or 7/8 cup of oil (if recipe required melted butter).

  • Egg 1 whole egg = 2 egg yolks + 1 tablespoon water.

  • Caster sugar place white sugar in a food processor and pulse for approximately 1 minute until the grains are finer.

  • Dark Brown Sugar 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar = 1 cup Caster Sugar + ¼ cup Treacle or Golden Syrup.

  • Soft Brown Sugar 1 cup Soft Brown Sugar = 1 cup Caster Sugar + 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup.

  • Milk 1 cup blue or light blue milk = ½ cup water + ½ cup evaporated milk or cream. Alternatively use soy milk.

  • Buttermilk 1 cup buttermilk = ½ cup plain non-fat yoghurt + ½ cup milk.

  • Sour cream 1 cup sour cream = 1 cup milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar stirred through and allowed to stand for 5 minutes to sour.

    Purple Cake Day

    
    Kiwicakes is proud to be the cake supplies sponsor for Purple Cake Day. I've spent some time corresponding with Emily, the incredible woman behind the initiative and after hearing her story I wanted to be involved immediately. Kiwicakes has fitted out Purple Cake Day, with EVERYTHING purple I could possibly think of and then some. I can't wait to see some of the purple creations made throughout February and on Purple Cake Day - March 1st 2011.

    Emily & her daughter Alyahna

    Purple Cake Day is an idea conceived by Nelsonian, Emily Sanson-Rejouis to celebrate the spirit of her daughters, Kofie-Jade (5) and Zenzie (3), who were lost with their father, Emily’s husband Emmanuel, in the Haiti earthquake in January 2010.

    It is inspired by Kofie’s compassion for children less fortunate and by Zenzie who wanted not one, but two purple cakes for her 4th birthday.



    Immediately following the earthquake, Emily established the Kenbe La Foundation (‘Kenbe La’ means “Never Give Up” in Haitian Creole), a registered charitable trust, to provide educational opportunities for children in need. The Foundation has since established Purple Cake Day as a specific day to celebrate and connect children from around the world.

    Funds raised by the Foundation in 2010 and 2011, including those raised by Purple Cake Day, are going towards the Foundation’s current project of building a school in Leogane Province, Haiti, one of the regions most severely affected by the earthquake. The Kenbe La Foundation has already provided and coordinated direct support to the Source of Hope School in Tom Gato Community, Leogane. The school supporting 120 primary level students with 5 teachers was completely destroyed in the quake. The Kenbe La Foundation has arranged educational resources, clothes, ShelterBox tents for temporary classrooms and teachers salaries. To read more about Emily’s story and the Foundation go to http://www.kenbelafoundation.org/

    Purple Cake Day Blog can be found by clicking  here and  from here you can download an educational pack for incorporating Purple Cake Day in to schools.


    Emily's story features in the February issue of next magazine. Julie Le Clerc has created a purple cupcake recipe, which features in next magazine you can get it here



    Ideas for how you can get involved are here
