Where’s Wally? I never knew this comic or “game” existed until someone suggested. You see, a few girlfriends whatsapped me 2 weeks back asking me to enter into a competition. Its a baking competition if you are wondering.

Basically, I am allowed a free play of my own creativity in the first elimination round. I have decided to name the challenge ” where’s Wally?”

The 1st round will require participant to come up with a bake piece and a photograph has to be taken. However, u need to take the picture with the butter block inside. It is SCS butter who is conducting this competition. So whatever bake I have decided to do, I will need to photograph my bake with the SCS butter. After pondering for days, I have decided to make a bake that looks like the butter block.

So… I made macarons into rectangular shapes to make it look like the cover and piped royal icing wordings onto it. I also baked a pound cake to emulate the yellow butter block. So here is how it turned out.

Pound cake

150g Cake Flour
120g Granulated Sugar
3 Eggs
200g Heavy Cream
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

Directions :

Sift the the baking powder and cake flour together.

Whipped the cream and sugar until stiff peaks. Then add an egg at a time and whisk it till well combined after each addition. After which add in the vanilla extract and whisked it.

Then mix in the sifted dry mixture. Prepare a cake mold with parchment paper lining it. Pour the batter into it. Fill up the mold up to 80%. Baked for 40 minutes in s preheated oven of 180 degree. Always use a cake tester to ensure that the cake is well baked.

Assembly

Basically, the measurements of the original butter block is measured. The macarons are made to the measurements taken. I sliced up the pound cake with the same measurement as well. After the piped words have dried up, I stick the respective sides using royal icing onto the cake.
