"Daisies Cake" Recipe

This cake I made for my 1 year blogoversary! I mixed my favorite ingredients together so this cake recipe is my own creation. It's been a really exciting year for me.  Inspiration came to start my blog from Natasha's Kitchen.  I started it as a hobby, because I had a lot of recipes to share. I had a lot of fun with my blog readers. My sister when she got married she always called me for recipes, so this is a great way to share.  I am a stay at home mom that loves to cook and bake and I love taking pictures. So with this mix it's perfect for food blogging. My very first recipe posted was Vanilla Bean Orange Cookies. Last month I started a Facebook page for Lea's Cooking. I would love your likes on the FB page. 

  Ingredients for cake batter:      
10 eggs
1.5 cups sugar
1.5 cups flour (I use Canadian flour) 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla

Cream frosting ingredients:
1 can cooked sweet condensed milk
2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened at room temp
8oz Cool whip topping
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese

 Fondant Recipe Gum Paste Recipe

For decoration:  use melted chocolate or Fondant Recipe

Fist boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for 3 hrs. Add more water when it evaporates. Cool down completely before opening it. This step can be done a few days in advance.   
Take out butter and cream cheese fron the fridge. Preheat oven to 325F. Whisk eggs, add sugar gradually. Mix for 15-20 min.
Add vanilla.
Mix flour with baking soda and baking powder in the sifter.
Sift flour into eggs, mix with spoon by HAND.
I used 2 circle 9 inch and 1 six inch baking pans. Spray with oil. I used foil for the bottom part.
Fill half way with batter baking pans.
Bake for 35 to 45 min depending on your oven. I always check it with my finger, if it's spongy it's ready.
While cake is baking, make zefir. Recipe is HERE. You can use store bought Zefir

Ingredients for cream.

Whip butter until fluffy. Add cream cheese, mix until smooth. Add cooked condensed milk, mix it well then add cool whip.

Open cans of fruits, drain it into a cup. Slice peaches into small pieces.
First layer I left thick. Then next I divided into 2 layers. Level the first layer of cake. Pour lightly fruit syrup from drained fruits.
Spread the cream thinly. Then add zefir layer, spread the cream on top. Add cake layer pour syrup spred cream thinly. Add fruits.

Spread cream on the last cake layer and cover the fruits like in the picture.  

Soak with syrup. Cover the cake with cream. At this point you can cover it with chocolate if you are not using fondant. If you run out of syrup just mix 1 cup of milk with 2 tbs sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Make the cake topper. For the top 6 inch cake I used cardboard under the cake.  I made it with 2 layers of cake and zefir in the middle.
I used straws for holding the cake topper. It worked perfectly for holding the cake.
Cover the cake with Fondant. I used fondant mold for the cake edge border.
I premade lots of flowers a week before. Decorate the cake any way you wish. For detailed info for cake decorations with daisies Click here.

This is how the cake looked inside.

Topper decoration is done. Keep cake refrigerated.
