Karlsson’s Concept on a Birthday Cake
Everyone deserves a cake on their Birthday! I like quoting one of my favorite book characters, Karlsson-on-the-Roof. If you read this book, you may remember he loved cakes (He also liked donuts, crepes, candy, cookies, jam, hot chocolate, and many other good things). He would say that you should always anticipate a good friend stopping by your house and thus have a cake for them.
As for birthday cakes, he was saying that instead of one cake with 8 (12-25-37…you choice) candles he preferred 8 cakes with one candle. I think he was absolutely right. Personally, I don’t like eating candles either so I’d rather have another slice of a cake.
So on my Birthday, I decided to make a cake. 8 cakes (without 30 and something candles)!
Just kidding, though. I just didn’t want to have a large layer cake which is why I made these Dulce de leche Bailey’s Mini Cakes.
Bailey’s. More Bailey’s, please!
I just simply baked the chocolate biscuit (like for a regular cake) and cut it with a cookie cutter. A piece of cake.
As for the frosting, I whipped dulce de leche (You know my love for it, don’t you?) with butter and a good amount of Bailey’s. That turned out awesome!
Besides, I generously drizzled Bailey’s over the layers.
Still not enough Bailey’s? I can handle it! I mixed the remaining parts and crumbs of the biscuit with some melted chocolate and Bailey’s and made the cake pops which topped my Dulce de leche Bailey’s Mini Cakes.
That was sooooooo good. Sweet (But not overly sweet), fluffy, moist, and with the distinctive flavor of Irish cream. That could not be better, I believe! At least Andrey told that was my first almost perfect (You know, he’s so picky) cake so far.
Well, it might be. There’s the thing. I made two kinds of mini layer cakes that day. The second one was pretty much similar, with a few twists. Perhaps, I can share the recipe one day too, if you don’t mind.
