Paw Patrol Orange Chiffon Cake

This is a Paw Patrol chiffon cake made especially for Chace who loves Paw Patrol! :) Because of him, my kids also started watching the cute series. My favorite scene is when the pups glide down the slide into their vehicles LOL! This cake is inspired by the Paw patrol crest on the tower, and to make it more special, I put his name on the bone ;).

This is a fun cake with paws and bones running all over the cake! I made a total for 4 vanilla chiffon layer cakes (red, grey, blue and white) to cut them out. And to make it even more fun, I even hid a few bones inside the chiffon cake (just some cake trivia) :p.

The base was orange chiffon cake adapted from sakura orange chiffon cake. This is an updated recipe in which I increased the orange juice and modified the baking temperature to further reduce to 140°C to reduce browning, which was important here as I needed a light orange cake as base for the blue paws.

Orange chiffon cake (17 cm chiffon tin)
3 egg yolks
20g sugar
39g vegetable oil
48ml orange juice (freshly squeezed)
60g cake flour
Orange emulco (few drops, will add to the flavour)
Orange zest (from 2 oranges)

4 egg whites
45g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1. Preheat oven to 160°C. I use steam baking with a thin layer of water in a pan under the lowest rack (optional but helps to control oven temperature).
2. Beat egg yolks with sugar with whisk till pale and light before stirring in oil and orange juice.
3. Next add in sieved flour, orange zest and a few drops of orange emulco and whisk till no trace of flour is found.
4. Meringue: Beat the egg whites with ¼ tsp cream of tartar till firm peaks or close to stiff peaks, mixing in caster sugar in 2 additions.
5. Fold in the meringue gently into the batter 1/3 at a time.
6. Gently tap the tin on table 3x to remove air bubbles
7. Bake the cake for 15 min at 160°C then 30 min at 140°C, or until skewer comes out clean.
8. Invert immediately once out of the oven to cool
9. Unmould by hand (video tutorial) after the cake is cool.
