Billie Eilish Layer Cake

@under_baked

Minimalistic Shortcake. Demonstration of a 4 layers shortcake, filled with chocolate cream, coated with rich heavy cream and garnished with a natural drip chocolate ganache, which is by the way, very fun and stressful to do 😝 I just love the simplicity and beauty of shortcakes. . . #bakingaesthetics #baketok #cozybaking #baking #fypbaking #cottagecoreaesthetic #aestheticbaking #cakesoftiktok #cottagecorebaking #caketoks

♬ What Was I Made For? – Billie Eilish

Story time: when I initially uploaded this layer cake video online, it was at a stage of when I considered to resign from creating content. Billie Eilish “What was I made for” was a trending song at that time, so I simply decided to name this cake “The Billie Eilish Layer Cake”. I know, it is so stupid, but for some reason it became my most viral cake I have shared thus far, that received a lot of attention and love, and I must admit- I have absolutely no idea why!

This cake is a simple chocolate layer cake, with ganache drips and American ice cream-like piped cream.

Anyways, once this cake became a hit, it felt wrong for me to stop creating content, even just for the fact that I received some kind of confirmation that there are people out there, that are interested in what I am sharing, or even makes them feel happier just watching my videos. Billie’s reaction to this cake is still pending lol.
