SUIT CAKE Tutorial

Learn how to make a simple Suit Cake

Today we’re going to make a Suit Cake. Its quite a simple idea for a 21st birthday cake, but different people execute simple ideas differently. I believe that the way that I’m going to make this cake will give you a new method, which you can choose to follow partially or completely. No matter which way you choose to go, you may just say…”I did it my way.” So please sit back and relax as we launch into another free Yeners Cake Tips Video.

Dark Chocolate (Compound) Wikipedia

100g

Compound chocolate is a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat, and sweeteners. It is used as a lower-cost alternative to true chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter. It may also be known as 'compound coating' or 'chocolatey coating' when used as a coating for candy.
