Fruity Birthday Cake#SundayFunday

This is my hubby birthday cake. A Sponge Cake with tinned fruit cocktail and mango chocolate ganache. A soft and delicious birthday cake. This is a fatless sponge cake, contains no butter or oil.

2 Large Eggs 
50 Grams All Purpose Flour 
50 Grams Caster Sugar 
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence 
½ Teaspoon Baking Powder 
For Assembling The Cake  
1 Tin Fruit Cocktail 
1 Cup Whipping Cream  
For The Mango Ganache 
100 Grams Mango Chocolate 
100 Grams Heavy Cream

Beat eggs and sugar till light, fluffy, it should triple in volume and become pale in color. Now add essence and lightly mix it.
Add in the sieved flour and baking powder, gently fold in the egg mixture with a spatula lightly.
Spread mixture in 6" loose bottom pan that is well greased and lined the base with parchment paper.
Bake in a pre heated oven for 20 - 25 minutes on 180°C or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool the cake overnight.

For Assembling The Cake
Open the fruit cocktail tin and strain the fruit in a strainer till all the syrup is drained. Keep the water and fruits aside in seperate bowls.

Whip the cream till stiff peaks are formed. Keep this in the refrigerator till ready to use.

Melt the mango chocolate and cream, whisk it well, pour this in the piping bag. Keep this aside.
Slice the cake into two parts.
Take one part and brush the top with fruit cocktail syrup. Pipe the whipped cream and evenly spread it with a offset knife. Drizzle little of the mango ganache and top it with fruit cocktail. Now place the other part of the cake on top. 
Lightly press it and again moisten the top with fruit cocktail syrup. Pipe the cake top and sides with the whipped cream. Drizzle the mango ganache on top and the sides of the cake. Pipe flowers and press in edible colored beads. Refrigerate it for at least 2 hours.
Slice and Enjoy!!
