A rich, fudge-like filled yogurt cake decorated with whimsical Pocky sticks can be easily devoured. Perhaps too easily, take caution.
By Amanda Koh
This decadent cake is made up of three delicious parts.
Decoration: Pocky sticks of strawberry and chocolate in their respective shades of bright pink and dark brown to be arranged side by side around the borders of a freshly frosted cake. Focus of the cake.
Cake: A mixed berries yoghurt cake. Fluffy, fruity, pocky-cake-worthy. This echoes the strawberry pocky.
Filling: Chocolate cake that has been reduced to crumbs, mixed with a generous amount condensed milk and a spoonful or two of milk. Tastes like fudge but with texture; a great way to use up leftover cake apart from making cake balls. I confess that I made cut-out chocolate cake hearts to be baked with the yoghurt cake batter but I totally forgot about their existence. Baking when I’m barely awake always results in a mishap or two – yet I never learn.

She likes to make a variety of desserts and documents them on her blog, Crumbs and Cookies. While eating the final product is usually the best part about baking, she secretly finds the process even more fun. You may also find her on Instagram @carramellatte and Pinterest @crumbsxcookies.
