-Add sifted wet ingredients alongwith milk-vinegar mix in batches of 3 & mix using cut and fold method lightly
-Bake in a greased and lined container in preheated oven at 160°C for 30 minutes or till the toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
-Let the baked sponge stay in oven for 20 minutes, then demould it and let it cool down to room temperature on a wired rack.
-Cover it well with a cling wrap and refrigerate it overnight before frosting the cake.
-Cut the sponge in 3 layers horizontally using a serrated knife, removing a thin top layer.
-Apply chilled light sugar syrup first to help it moisten the sponge and over it apply a generous amount of ganache on all the 3 layers as shown in the video.
-Smoothen the top using icing smoother. This makes the crumb coated cake which arrests the crumbs of the cake for a final smooth coating. Refrigerate the cake for atleast 30 minutes before final coating.
-Finally, arrange the gems and kitkat as shown in the video.
-Use toothpick, plastic straw and an empty gems pack(filled with tissues) to create an anti gravity look as shown in the video.
-Use molten ganache to stick gems etc wherever required. Just melt the ganache in microwave for 15 seconds or over a double boiler.
