Wedding Baking – White Chocolate and Raspberry Cakes

White Chocolate and Raspberry Cakes

Little White Chocolate and Raspberry Cakes – another perfect little wedding treat – bag them up and tie with ribbon or place them in teeny tiny presentation boxes as cute little favours a little bit different!
These are baked in a silicone flower mould by Pampered Chef Silicone Flower Mould -

Pampered Chef.

Lots of Pink Whiskers are Pampered Chef consultants so in the interest of fairness please visit www.pamperedchef.co.uk to find your own local consultant.
The silicone pan has beautiful flower shapes in three designs rose, daisy and sunflower.  It has a metal rim to keep the mould sturdy and manageable when working with it.  But what I love most about it is the fact that Pampered Chef advise you to grease the pan each time you use it which is key to getting the moulded cakes out cleanly without ruining the design.
So here we go, rose, daisy and sunflower shaped cakes…
Any shaped mould will do the trick and there’s loads available if you search online. The mixture will also bake as an 8″ cake if you’re not wedding/occasion baking.

Ingredients:
150g butter, melted115g caster sugar3 eggs, large1tsp vanilla extract170g self-raising flour, sifted75g white chocolate, grated150g frozen raspberries

Preheat oven to 180c/160c Fan/Gas Mark 4.
Grease the silicone cake mould with a spray oil such as fry light or some melted butter and a pastry brush.

Melt the butter and leave to stand until just lukewarm.
Whisk together the melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract and eggs.


Add the sifted flour and fold in.


Grate the white chocolate.  Using a box grater will stop the pieces of chocolate flying all over the kitchen.  Obviously it gets tricky not to grate your fingers as you get down to the last little bits – save yourself injury and eat those!


Add the chocolate to the cake mixture and mix in thoroughly.

Now take your raspberries from the freezer.  Keeping them frozen hard until it’s time to use them means that they mix in easily without smashing into nothing and bleeding through the mixture.

Lay the raspberries on a chopping board and using a knife press the blade across the raspberries one by one.  They will shatter into pieces – this is exactly what we want.

When they are all broken up add them to the cake mixture and fold in well.

The mixture may feel slightly frozen which is caused by the frozen raspberries.  Don’t worry go ahead and fill each recess of your cake pan 2/3rds full and place in the oven to bake for approx. 25 minutes.

When baked to perfection remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes.

Loosen the edges of the cake away from the mould using your fingers.  Place a cooling rack over the top of the pan and flip it over to release the cakes.

Leave to cool to room temperature then cut off the domed bases with a serrated knife so that they will sit straight on the plate.  You get to eat these bits too.

Serve with a dusting of icing sugar – that’s all these little lovelies need!

Tip: Because of the moisture from the raspberries these cakes will only keep for a day or two if you’re making them in advance let them cool and then freeze, you can then defrost them just when you need them.  Store in an airtight container.

    These look fantastic! They look ideal for some treats that I'm baking for a friends hen party soon. I wondered if it would be possible to use dried raspberries instead of fresh ones and if this would make the cakes last longer?

  2. Kelly-Jane says:

    I've got one of those moulds, not used it yet, I'll give this recipe a go, thanks!

  3. philosophyandcupcakes says:

    These look delicious! I have some Christmas moulds for cakes but never seen anything so decorative-make the cakes look even more gorgeous!x

  10. domestikated says:

    I have this mould and these seem like the perfect cakes to make in it! The only thing I don't like about it is that you have to trim so much off the bottom of the cakes to get them to sit nicely; I tend to overfill so I'm still left with a decent sized cupcake!

  11. Naomi-Jayne says:

    Ive Just made up my first batch and they are so yummy!!!

  12. Stacey says:

  14. Kim says:

    I have that very mould! I'll make some on friday, even though I'm supposed to be on a diet – they look wonderful.

  15. Kat says:

    I'd love to try this recipe in a cake tin how long would I have to bake it for?

  16. Islay Gould says:

    These look DELICIOUS!!! I can’t wait to try them! My Dad is Gluten Free and I’m baking for family for Christmas and I can’t find an easy recipe for gluten-free muffins/cupcakes, so I was wondering if you could do one on the website? It would be a great help :) Thanks
