Mother’s Day 2013 ~ Hidden Heart Cupcake 隐藏的心杯子蛋糕


虽然母亲节已经过了,我还是想在这里祝我的妈咪朋友和读者们“母亲节快乐!”。

今年我收到最好的礼物就是小儿在没有爹地的引导下主动跟我说“Happy Mother’s Day!”,是第一次哦!听到的那瞬间真的很感动,感觉好窝心哦。





同样的今年我也为妈妈准备了母亲节蛋糕。之前有好几个构思但最终做的却是动手前即兴的想法。不知道大家在生活中是不是也遇过类似的情况?可能是偏向随性的性格使然,我想的和最终的成果往往是天南地北。这是好事还是坏事呢?往好的一方面想这表示我懂得变通,随和,但往坏的一面想我没有努力朝目标前进,没有坚持。。。有时我很不喜欢这样的自己。

回到蛋糕主题。蛋糕是母亲节前一晚做的。里头的心形蛋糕是之前上蛋糕装饰课剩下的巧克力戚风(把它收入冷冻库里了),主蛋糕体是香橙牛油蛋糕。


本来是要做“隐藏的心”,不知道是我的“心”太大颗,还是模型太小,又或者是戚风蛋糕体太轻,纵使烤前我是把整颗心隐藏起来的,但蛋糕烤好后那颗心还是浮现上来了。

在误打误撞下我觉得这样半浮现的心切面图也蛮美的,你认为呢?

切半前平平无奇的外表

Hidden Heart Cupcake (Orange Butter Cake with Chocolate Chiffon Heart)

Can I still call this hidden heart cupcake since the heart is not totally hidden? haha

I made this for my mum and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. The “heart” is chocolate chiffon cake, leftover from my cake deco class and the cake base in orange butter cake. You can have any combination and any of your favourite recipes to make this hidden heart cupcake.

I adapted the recipe of this Lemon Butter Cupcake to make it into orange flavour by replacing lemon zest with about ½ tbsp of orange paste. You can also replace with orange zest. I think orange and chocolate is a good match, don’t you think so?

I made 10 cupcakes with hearts from this recipe (12 –hole standard muffin tray size) and one small cupcake without heart. I used one 6” round sheet cake (about 3/4" height) to cut out the hearts. You may make 1.25 or 1.5 times of the orange butter cake recipe and bake a small sheet cake for the “hearts” first (with added colouring) then using the same batter for the cake base.

To make hidden heart design, add little batter to the muffin cup/ tray, place the cut-out heart shape cake at the centre with standing position then cover the heart with batter. Bake as usual.


From my beloved little one. I strongly believe that it was 99% done by the teacher but when asked, my little one told me that it was done by him...confidently. Hehe

    1. Jess,

      我也曾经想过做这个给老公不过后来不了了之。我们心有灵犀哦。

      其实最终做这个的原因是我的冷冻库爆满,想要清掉那个巧克力戚风 :P

      我没有看到Potato的看了我走宝了。
