Preparing the pan

  • Brush two 6” cake pans or one 8” cake pan with oil on the bottom and the circumference too. Now dust it with some flour to coat the pan.
  • Cut and line the pans with parchment round at the bottom.

Preparing dry and liquid ingredients

  • In a large bowl sift all dry ingredients.

  • Whip until the sugar granules are almost melted .
  • Now pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whip until lump free.
  • Do not overmix.

  • Once done take it out of the oven carefully.
  • Let the cake cool in the pans for 10 minutes.
  • Now run a butter knife around the circumference of the cake to rlease it.
  • Now invert the cakes on the cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Loosely cover the cakes with a muslin cloth or kitchen towel to prevent drying out.

For the mango pudding

  • While the cake is baking quickly blend or whisk the ingredients called for pudding together into a smooth paste. Add more sugar if the mixture isn't sweet.
  • In a non stick pan cook the mixture on low heat stirring occasionally.
  • Once the pudding mixture warms up stir continuously scrapping the sides and bottom to avoid sticking.
  • The pudding is done when the mixture starts to thicken up and coats the back of the spoon well.
  • Mango pudding should be done under 10 minutes start to finish.
  • It will thicken more after cooling down.

  • Slice the top of the cakes to level if there is a dome .
  • Cut the cakes into half.

  • Repeat for all the layers while stacking them.
  • You may tint the frosting with your choice of colors.
  • Now frost on the top and the sides as desired.
  • Peel and cut a mango into half . Cut thin slices . Arrange the slices in a circle starting at the center to form a rose.
  • Fill the icing bag with dual color frosting and pipe swirls if desired.
  • Refrigerate the cake at least 2 hours before eating.
