Cake Batter - 3 layers 11 x 13 sheet pan
Or Cream Cheese Whipped Frosting
Decorations of your choice
- Preheat the oven to 325°F /165°C/ Gas Mark - 3
- Grease and line two 11 x 13-inch sheet cake pans or three 7 x 10 sheet cake pans with parchment paper.
- Dry ingredients - Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar. Whip for 2 to 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
- Next add the eggs, one at a time. Followed by the vanilla extract. Pro tip- adding eggs one at a time will prevent the eggs from curdling. If the batter does curdle just add a tablespoon of flour to help stabilize it.
- Next, add the flour and buttermilk in three batches. Combine well but do not over mix. Pro tip - we do not want to activate the gluten in the flour so work gently once you add the flour.
- Divide batter equally between the 3 or 2 sheet pans. Use an offset spatula to spread it evenly. Tap the pan a few times to remove air pockets and let the batter settle down.
- Bake on the middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Pro tip - using baking/ cake strips for your pans will prevent a dome and excess caramelization around the edges which looks better for layer cakes.
- Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Pro tip - always cool cakes completely before decorating otherwise the frosting will melt on warm cakes.
Prepare sugar syrup
- To prepare the simple syrup, boil the sugar, water, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Once all the sugar is dissolved, boil a minute more - then cool completely.
Whipped Cream Frosting Or
- In the stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the cream with powdered sugar until you have stiff peaks. Transfer to a piping bag with the desired piping tip.
Cream cheese whipped cream
- In a stand mixer bowl with the paddle attachment, cream the cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Pour the chilled whipping cream and whip until stiff peaks. Add vanilla extract and whip to combine. Transfer to a piping bag with the desired piping tip.
- Print the desired template of the number or letter you plan to make. Ensure the size is the same as your cake.
- Starting with one sheet cake, use the template to cut around the desired shape. Set it aside and do the same with the remaining layer/s.Pro tip - Place the template on the cake - use a small paring knife and carefully cut the shape. A ruler helps with straight lines.
- lace the first layer on the cake board or cake stand. Brush with simple syrup. Pipe the frosting all over with the piping bag. Then, place the second layer on top. Pipe more frosting, followed by the 3rd layer on top and more frosting. Pro tip - chilling the cake will help hold the two layers together and prevent them from moving while frosting the outside.
- The cake can now be decorated with any toppings from fresh fruits and berries to macarons and candy.

Cooking Foodie - No. 5 Cake
Joconde is a light and airy sponge cake recipe that is easy to make and so versatile.
Joconde is a great cake to use for the latest trend, alphabet cakes. You can’t just use any type of cake because it will dry out. You can leave joconde out in the open air and it letter m cake dry out which is perfect for alphabet cakes.
Alphabet cakes are the cake version of the cream tart which is tart dough shaped into letters or shapes, filled with diplomat or pastry cream (sometimes buttercream) and decorated with fresh fruits, flowers or candies.
What is Joconde Biscuit?
Biscuit Joconde is a light almond sponge cake, which is known as La Joconde in French, it is named after the Mona Lisa. I made joconde a lot in pastry school. We used it to make opera cakes, sponge cakes and little desserts filled with mousse or buttercream.
Because joconde is so versatile, you can also make some elaborate stenciled designs using Joconde. To color joconde, take out 1/3 of the cake batter and add some cocoa powder to it or some food coloring. You can stencil this color onto the parchment paper or silpat. Then bake that for 5 minutes just to set it. Add the rest of your batter on top of the stencil and bake for 8 minutes until the edges just start to brown.
You can make some really cute desserts with stenciled joconde. Cut off the browned edges of your cake and then cut your joconde into thin strips. Line the inside of a large cookie cutter with the strip. Then cut another circle out of the striped sponge with a round cookie cutter to fill the bottom of the cutter. Then you’ll want to fill the center with some mousse and refrigerate until set. Topping the simple dessert with a chocolate butterfly makes this dessert seem a lot more complicated than it is!
Another fun design was making chocolate joconde and cutting out some circles with a cookie cutter. Use a slightly smaller cutter to remove the center and insert the same sized circle of the striped joconde. You can then put a little piped buttercream in the center and you have a nice little treat! Great for a baby shower. Almost looks like zebra print to me.
Using joconde to make a cake is not a new thing but the way cake decorators have been letter m cake it is forever changing. Other than little pastries and opera cake, I only knew of using joconde for cake from Robin M Cakes. Robin makes really cook cake designs using joconde. She stencils, tapes and uses a variety of other techniques to create her amazing cake designs. You can learn more about how to make these amazing cake designs from her online cake tutorials.

Alphabet Cake Made With Joconde?
A lot of people ask me what is the best cake to use to make an alphabet cake. You might be tempted to just use the regular cake that you would use for stacked cakes but wait! The problem with that is those cakes dry out super fast! Alphabet cakes have raw edges (not frosted) so it’s important that you use a cake that is up for the job.
The great thing about joconde is that it’s literally made to be exposed to the air. How in the world did the French discover this technique? I have no idea but it’s genius. If you follow this technique, you’ll have a great moist sponge for a ton of different desserts.
I decided to break out my old pastry school cookbook and make a joconde cake for a gender reveal alphabet cake. This cake probably feeds about letter m cake so if you want your cake to feed more, you might have to use bigger templates. Someone told me that she buys giant wooden letters from the craft store for her templates and I thought that was kind of genius.
You could also use the big cardboard letters from the craft section.
To make your alphabet cake using Joconde, you’ll want to bake your cakes ahead. I bake my cakes 24 hours in advance so that they have plenty of time to chill and for the sugar to dissolve into the cake. When you first handle the cake, it can be a little delicate so if you put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes it’s a bit easier to handle and less prone to cracking.
First print out your letters and cut them out. I try to use a font that is pretty thick like helvetica bold. If you need the letter to be really big, try using league gothic which is pretty thick but more narrow so you can print the letter out on two pieces of paper, tape them together to form one large letter. If you need a huge letter you’ll need to bake two cakes.
For the colored surprise center, I colored some easy buttercream blue using gel food coloring. I like electric blue food coloring from Americolor because it’s a really pretty pastel. Other blues look a little green or purple when it’s really light which is no bueno for a gender reveal cake. I piped a thick line down the center of the letter with a piping tip that is about an inch thick. I then piped white buttercream all around the blue in big dollops so that when you put the top layer of cake on you can’t see the colored buttercream.
The top of the cake is decorated with more dollops of buttercream, french letter m cake, fresh berries, meringues, candies and fresh berries. The best part is you can decorate with whatever you want as buy numbing cream for waxing as the colors meld with the them you’re going for. When you cut inside you can see the gender revealed! You can see this full mess of an alphabet cake demo on my facebook page LIVE
I totally love this cake because it’s so cute and easy! I vow to make this as my own gender reveal (or ask my friend to make me one) if I ever get pregnant again! Letter m cake it just looks SO yummy!

How to make joconde without almonds?
Some people have been asking me about what you can use in place of almonds in this recipe. I have heard that you can use ground sunflower seeds although I have not tested this substitution. You can read more about what to use to replace almond flour in recipes here.
- First you need to preheat your letter m cake to 425ºF/230ºC.
- Sift together your almond flour, first measurement of sugar and flour so you don't have any lumps.
- Then you should blend in the 5 whole eggs into the flour until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to soft peaks and slowly add in the second measurement of sugar. Continue whipping to firm moist peaks. If they start crumbling you have over-whipped your egg whites and there isn't any way to save them.
- Then fold your meringue into mixture until just combined. Make sure you don't over mix it or get too rough and break down all the air you built up in your batter or you'll have a very flat cake.
- Slowly whisk in the melted butter.
- Finally, spread the mixture onto your prepared silicone mat or parchment paper in a jelly roll or shallow sheet pan (13"x18)" and bake for 8 minutes. Make sure you don't over bake your cake.
- Once your cake is cooled, sprinkle a thin layer of granulated sugar over the surface of the cake and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit overnight in the fridge. The sugar will dissolve into the cake as a result, the cake will stay moist even if it's exposed to air. Cool huh!
- Tip for chocolate version: or a chocolate You will need to replace 35 grams of flour with 25 grams flour + 15 grams cocoa powder.
