Homemade 2 tiers Birthday Cake

This year son requested for a 2 tiers custard birthday. I really scratched my head real hard, this is a big and challenging project.

Finally, i came out with this My Cooking Experiment-Chocolate Bananas Cake
and Best recipes - Custard Cake. Simply i just put the 2 cakes together and decorate it a little. Thou there're hipcup here and there, the cake is done up and edible. hahhaha

1) Base - Custard Cake
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
250g butter at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup castor sugar
4 eggs
3/4 cup custard powder
1/2 cup milk

  1. Put all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix with electric mixer until just combined
  2. Pour into the 8" round tin. Cook for 1 hour @ 180c
2) Top - Chocolate Cake
65g butter, sogten at room temp
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup + 1/4 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp soda bicarbonate
1/2 cup milk

  1. Grease the 6" round tin
  2. Combine butter, sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa, soda bicarbonate & milk with an electric mixer on low until just combined
  3. then beat on medium speed till smooth
  4. pour into pan at 180c for 30-35 mins
Initially,I wanted to make white cream to go round the cake. Instead of whipping up the whipped cream and mix it with the white chocolate. I went to cook it. Look how silly am I, good thing the cake still look good with some decor.
