Recipe steps

  1. Let’s begin by making the Orange sheet cake for the dessert cups. Before starting with the process let’s grease, dust n line a large cake tin/sheet cake pan with parchment paper. I have used a 12″ cake tin. Use the largest size tin that u have, as we need a thin cake layer.

  11. Pour the batter into the prepared tin n  bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 15mins./till the cake springs back to touch/till a skewer inserted comes out clean. Let cool completely.

  13. Meanwhile to make cream cheese take milk in a deep pot n bring to boil. Now add lemon juice n simmer till the milk curdles completely n the whey n cream r separated. You could add a little more lemon juice if needed.
  14. Place a clean cloth over a strainer n pour the curdled milk through this. Keep this for a while till it comes to room temperature.

Assembling

    1. Once the sheet cake has cooled down completely, let’s get on with the assembling part. Take the dessert cups n keep it ready. Using cookie cutters of the size of the base of the cups, cut out portions from the sheet cake n layer the base of the cups.

    3. Now pipe a layer of frosting over the cake. Repeat the process alternating the cake n the frosting layers. I have used small dessert cups n hence just one layer could be done this way. Depending on the size of Ur cups increase the no.of layers.
