Diwali is right around the corner.
It is one of the most grandest celebration time back in India. You can smell the festivity in the air.
Diwali is my favourite festival too and this is the time when I miss India the most.

Eggless Red Velvet Cake is a velvety smooth, soft and moist cake that has a balanced sweetness coming from the cream cheese frosting
- 1.5 cups Maida
- 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
- 1 tsp Baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 6 tbsp Oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Red food Colour
- 160 gms Cream Cheese softened
- 20 gms Butter softened
- 440 gms Icing sugar sifted
- Zest and Juice of 1 lemon
- 100 gms White Chocolate melted
- 50 gms Dark Chocolate melted
- 1/3 cup Hot Water
- 3 tbsp Sugar
Start by making the buttermilk. That is take the warm milk, add the lemon juice, stir and let it sit for 5 mins.
Meanwhile sift all the dry ingredients (maida, cocoa powder, soda and salt) into a bowl. Add the sugar to it and stir well
Combine all the wet ingredients that is oil, vanilla extract, red food colouring and the prepared buttermilk in a separate bowl. Mix until homogenised.
Make a well in the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to it and fold to get a smooth cake batter consistency.
Bake in a 13x9 inch baking tray in a preheated oven for 8-12 mins. It took me 10 mins to bake this. Do the toothpick test.
Once out of the oven, immediately remove the cake from the tray and set it to cool completely.
Beat the softened butter and cream cheese until smooth and light.
Add half of the lemon juice and zest. Beat well.
Add the sugar little at a time. Beat to form a smooth paste.
At the end you may want to adjust the consistency. That is if it is too runny to pipe add little more sugar and if it is too thick then adjust with the lemon juice.
Take a spoonful of white chocolate and spread it onto the parchment paper. Bang it 3 4 times to get a smooth surface. You can check it out in the video that I have shared. Allow it to set completely.
Take a piping bag filled with some melted dark chocolate and write Happy Diwali on the set white chocolate disc.
Take the hot water and add the sugar to it. Stir to dissolve the sugar completely.
Make small roundels from the baked cake using a cookie cutter in a size that matches your mason jar.
Onto the mason jar add a layer of the cake roundel. Moisten it with simple syrup
Pipe the cream cheese frosting on top.
Add another layer of the cake. Soak it with simple syrup and repeat the layers until you reach the top. The top should always be a cake layer.
Place the chocolate disc. Close the mason jar. Gift it to near and dear ones with personalised notes.
You can use any cake layer and frosting as per your choice.
Also instead of writing happy diwali using melted chocolate you can customise it for any occasion like “Merry Christmas”, “Happy New Year”, “Happy Valentine’s” etc.
Happy Diwali in advance to all of you guys. Please keep an eye on this space for more Diwali special recipes
I will see you in my next one.
