Romeo and Juliette cake


Posted by - Vivian 

I made this cake for my mother in-law's birthday.... actually, I made little individual cakes using the heart shape cupcake pan I have.  I had to reduce the cooking time to 16 minutes (rotating the pans after 8 minutes) and the directions were a bit confusing so I ended up winging a few things.  There's milk in the recipe, but the directions here or on the site this was taken from said when to add it.  I decided that I would combine the milk and oil and where the directions stated to add the oil that's when I put it in.  Also, I didn't know what to do with the guava jelly... that probably sounds stupid since the obvious answer is to put it on the cake.  However, the jelly is.. well, its jelled.  So to make it spreadable I added some water into a small pan and then added the jelly to warm it together and liquefy it.  While it was still quite hot, I dipped the little cake tops into it.  Having the paste would have been better, I'm sure of it.  But I was lucky to find the jelly in our area so jelly it was.  Like the previous poster stated, I added fresh Parmesan cheese but none of us tasted it.  This was an interesting challenge and was happy to take part in it so a big thanks for the suggestion of this cake!
