Today is a great day!!! Ganpati festival, Teacher's day and above all my Father's B'day.

I wanted to make something really special and suddenly the idea of making Cake in the shape of a Modak beamed into my mind. So here's my Cake shaped like Modak.
How is this cute Modak Cake? Do share your views with me.
(I know its not perfect but I tried my level best to make it look good!)
 As such I have not experimented with any new recipe for this cake.
You can say more or less this is a collection from my old posts.
It's a multi-layered cake, so the baking part was quite laborious.
For the filling I've used Cherry compote with buttercream. I love the combination of Compote and Buttercream. Compote balances the sweetness of Buttercream and gives it a rich delicious flavor.

I've used this recipe to make the cake-fruit flavoured cake

These are the cake layers, too many na?
The filling- Compote with Buttercream.
Arrangement of layers. I know what's going on in your mind. It is looking like the Leaning Tower of Pisa ;)
Don't worry we'll fix it by trimming the sides.

Voila!!!!! Perfect it is.

The Crumb Coat.

After I kept the Crumb Coat in the fridge for two hours, I did one more layer of Buttercream.
Next the designing part.
Get your creative juices flowing and make whatever you like.

Going with the festive mood I designed it in a traditional way.
