I do not know if it’s up to Maike’s wedding planning, but we’re always talking about tarts when we see each other. When we rummaged through their offer for our cooperation with , an online shop around living and household (Maike in Enschede, me in Münster, together in a hangout), we both got stuck on this baking tray : “Uuuuh, cake party! And aaah with it you can make mini ombre tartlets! “. So far, we were always a little too comfortable, because we did not want to bake floors for hours. The baking tray arrived at our place and I implemented the ombre tarts plan on the same day. Here comes a simple basic recipe for you. And you will find small tartlets here, then determined much more soon, I think the baking sheet idea namely awesome for all who want to have very quickly different sorts of cake on the table.

That’s what you need – mini ombre tartlets

On the sheet fit 12 mini tartlets. I made a dough and colored it differently. From the parts I put together 8 mini ombre tarts. The finished tarts were then about 10 cm high and had a diameter of 6 cm.

Simple dough basic recipe

  • 250 grams of margarine
  • 300 sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 500 grams of flour
  • 1 packet of baking soda
  • 1 half cup of milk

For dyeing

  • Food coloring in red, green and blue
  • 4-5 tablespoons baking cocoa plus 1-2 tablespoons sugar

Filling basic recipe

  • 100 grams of cream
  • ½ packet of vanilla sugar
  • 100 grams of creme fraiche
  • 125 grams of mascarpone
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar (or to taste)


  • To coat the floors: 1- 2 tablespoons of your choice: currant jelly, nut nougat cream or peanut butter
  • A few berries, chocolate or similar as decoration

Mini ombre tarts – that’s how it’s done

Prepare basic dough

Of course, you could also start a cupcake party with 12 different recipes to make it easier, but I used the same basic dough for all the tarts. For this you first grease the molds and preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Then margarine, eggs and sugar are beaten nicely foamy. Also stir in the flour and baking powder and add the milk in sips until a creamy dough is formed. Finished!

Dye the dough

I baked pink, mint and brown mini ombre tartlets and divided the dough into three (you can weigh it if you’re unsure). Then, always add a dab of food coloring to it, put one quarter of the dough into a mold and add more food coloring until I had four different full-size molds. The brown tarts I have colored with baking cocoa (this creates a nice chocolaty taste). So that this does not dry the dough, I have the cocoa first mixed with a little sugar and water to a creamy paste. Then you can use it as well as the food coloring. (Extra tip: you can also use the cocoa paste with espresso instead of water … yummy !!!)

Bake and cut

The tarts can then be put together in the oven thanks to the mold. Approximately 25 minutes at 175 degrees. Do a chopstick test to see if they are good. The cake rings can be pulled off easily if you’ve greased them well. Place the tarts on a grid and let them cool down completely. Then you can cut them in about 1 -2 cm thick slices. I then tapped the crust with a glass to better see the ombre effect … but this is not really necessary.

And now assemble

First stir the cream together by whipping the cream, blending well all other ingredients and then setting the cream under it. I then coated the tartlets thinly with marmalade or nut nougat cream and then simply built with tiers and cream beautiful turrets. On top of it a little cream and decoration … done! If you want, you can coat the cakes with the cream … the ombre effect is a surprise!

Enjoy the meal!
