What is your decision going to be? You have to decide whether to infuse the marijuana cake batter and the frosting or either one. You don't want to do both, if it is going to spoil your birthday celebration. As it relates, you want to avoid using too much cannabis unless you and your friends are heavy marijuana users. Your frosting might take a long time, if you do it from scratch, but it might be worth the time and effort. Roll the fondant thin after you have chosen your colors. You should use a rolling pin or empty bottle and parchment. Sprinkle powdered sugar on the parchment. This will prevent it from sticking. You can get the fondant at any local craft ship or online.
The Main Ingredients
Now let's check out the ingredients. For an infused marijuana cake, there are some things that you shouldn't avoid using. To start, make sure you have three cups of dark or granulated sugar, three cups or more of flour, a cup and a half of cocoa, a tablespoon of baking soda, a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon and a half of baking soda, four large eggs, a half cup of sour cream, a cup of buttermilk, a half cup of marijuana infused oil with 118mg THC for each half cup and a tablespoon of vanilla extract.
The Frosting Ingredients
For the frosting, you will need about six tablespoons of pistachio pudding powder, three quarter cup of unsalted butter, a cup of half and half cream, and about five cups of powdered sugar. For the fondant, you will use some of the powdered sugar, if necessary, food coloring, which is optional and about six ounces of fondant. Now, let's consider the instructions that you should follow.
To make the marijuana cake, there are certain instructions that you should follow to get the best results. As with baking any other cake, the oven has to be heated at 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Assuming you have three cake pans, use the butter and flour to prepare the bottom from sticking. Use a large bowl now to combine all the ingredients, which are dry such as the sugar, cocoa, flour, salt and baking soda. In a different bowl, combine the ingredients, which are wet such as the eggs, buttermilk, and sour cream, vanilla and cannabis oil. Whip it until it becomes uniform and smooth. Add dry ingredients slowly, blending everything by gently mixing, but not for long. Pour the batter in the three marijuana cake pans and bake the mixed ingredients for about 35 minutes or less, checking periodically with a toothpick.
Adding the Frosting
To finish up your frosting, use an electric mixer to whip up the butter until it is fluffy and then you add the pudding powder until it is well blended. You would then add the vanilla, then the powdered sugar and then let it sit for about an hour; after which you would use it to frost you marijuana cake. With the baking sheet lined with the parchment paper, sprinkle the powdered sugar on the surface and with oil or butter on your hands, mold the fondant gently; after which you would roll it until it is about half an inch thick. Then you would add a little more of the powdered sugar. With a knife, create marijuana leaves by pressing into your fondant. After putting the leaves on the baking sheet, which you lined with the parchment paper, you would then use a knife to make little indentations on your leaves. Wait an hour for them to set.
Assemble your marijuana cake, layer by layer and with the frosting. Now, you are ready for a big party celebration. To learn more about making a marijuana cake and other cannabis-infused products, visit the Cannabis Training University today.
