Pokeball Chiffon Cake

Pokeball Chiffon Cake

This Pokeball Chiffon Cake fits nicely in the palm of your hand, like an actual Pokeball! Made from classic chiffon cake batter and baked in dome-shaped moulds to achieve the roundness. When baked, chiffon cakes are easy to handle for decoration.

These Pokeballs will be great for a Pokemon themed party too. I baked some pokemon macarons to accompany them. The recipe for the macarons will be up soon!

If you want, you can add some colourless food flavouring into the cake batter - e.g. vanilla, pandan or rose. The original flavour is nice on its own, hence I skipped the flavouring.

Silicon dome-shaped baking mould

The most important thing about this recipe is the dome-shaped baking mould. I purchased mine from Qoo10 at a pretty affordable price. This mould is a good investment as it is also useful for making mini dome cakes or chocolate dome balls.

Pokemon trainers, do try this recipe out!
