Circus birthday cake with ombre effect

On Friday we celebrated childbirthday and of course I baked – two times! In the mornings for the birthday breakfast there was the traditional Chocolate Smarties cake with candles and for the party I conjured a circus birthday cake with an ombre effect. I’m really proud, because I’m not that much the baker, but this pie is just great!

The recipe is from an old tasty Bakery and worked really well. For this I have made a fabulous Caketopper – the idea and template is not mine, but I thought it was so ingenious, because I did not even have to come up with something. So, if you want to throw a circus party with this chic cake topper, then jump over to One Charming Party . A couple of paper straws, some bakery yarn give the high wire off and it hangs the sweet acrobat – upside down!

I have decorated with white fondant, which I have simply peeled with food color, silver pearls give the glamor factor. So and now I quickly write down the recipe for you:

A super beautiful birthday cake with gradient inside and tightrope dancer outside.

  2. 280g sugar
  3. 6 eggs (size M)
  4. 50ml buttermilk
  5. 2 gestr. TL baking powder
  6. 220g + some flour
  7. 100g cornstarch
  8. red food color
  9. about 150g strawberry jam

preparation

  1. Beat the butter and sugar until foamy for about 5 minutes. Then gradually add the eggs, then the buttermilk.
  2. Mix flour, cornflour and baking powder and stir quickly under the dough.
  3. Distribute the dough evenly on four bowls and stain three doughs with the food color. Becoming stronger, from apricot to light pink to pink. A dough remains natural.
  4. Preheat the oven to 150 ┬░ C.
  5. Grease two springforms (a 20cm) with butter and dust with flour and add one dough each. Smooth and bake for 25-30 minutes (gar taste with a wooden skewer).

  7. Repeat with the two remaining doughs.
  8. When all the floors have cooled down, they may need to be straightened a bit and then stacked from dark bottom to bright top. Strawberry jam is always spread between the bottoms.
  9. At least 4 hours, covered with cling film, leave in the refrigerator.
  10. Cover everything with fondant, put on small fondant pennants and paint the circus tent with liquid food colors.
  11. Caketopper tinker and put on top.
  12. FINISHED!

The cake was the eye-catcher. It tasted great, too, although it is actually nothing more than a colorful sponge cake with strawberry jam ­čśë But at 35 ┬░ C in the shade, every cream or butter cream filling would have made the bargain. And children like “dry” cakes anyway!

Even if it was not so self-creative today and I kept very close to the inventors’ ideas for the recipe and decoration, I still send the Gebursttagstorte over to Creadienstag and see what you’ve done !

A creative week wishes you
