No I do not know how it happens, that always makes me podkusi, and agree to do something, you've never done before and did not really know, how to go about it. This time the challenge was a big, because the cake was supposed to be for little Lightning McQueen fan!!
I do not really know, what I was thinking agreeing to this… 🙂 Well, but where is the internet? Looked at some interesting sites and more or less had a picture of, I want, cake to look like. But to this, to look like, how they came up with, the road was loooong. I'll just say, it was worth it, because even though I am aware of the many shortcomings, I am also very proud of this cake! Is it difficult? I do not know, but definitely requires patience and accuracy. Tried also with a manual image for you, if anyone would like to face the challenge.
And how it came out and see for themselves judge it 🙂
P.S. Very helpful was my home private engineer, who watched over the correct proportions and helped cut the cake and bravely wałkował mass, because I did not have the strength 🙂 Thank you darling!! 🙂
Ingredients for the sponge:
- 10 eggs (separate the yolk and the egg white)
- 1,5 glass* of flour + 2-3 tablespoons of flour
- 1 cup of potato flour
- 1,5 glass caster sugar
Beat egg whites until stiff, at the end of churning add the sugar in batches, mixing all the time. Then add one egg mix, each. Finally, gently stir in sifted flour (I did it on the slowest speed mixer).
The bottom of the plaque of dimensions 37×25 cm in diameter (preferably with removable side, as in springform pan) parchment paper for baking, Do not grease the sides of the grease or lined paper. Transfer the dough and smooth surface.
Bake at 175 – 180° C for about 35 – 40 minutes, or what is called a dry stick. If you have a problem with falling ladyfingers, should you remove it from the oven and drop on a soft surface (np. on a folded blanket on the floor) from a height of about 60 cm in diameter. Do not be afraid of, this is a brilliant way to nieopadanie sponge cake, and I assure you, it works. Set aside to cool. Quenched sponge cake cut into three or four tops (it is best to bake a sponge cake the day before, then it is much easier to cut). Each of the tops soak.
- glass tea light
- teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 mascarpone cheese 250g each
- 750ml cream cream
- 300g dark chocolate
- 100g milk chocolate
Chocolate broken into small pieces, add 300ml cream and heat, complete dissolution of the chocolate (from time to time to confuse the mass). Rozpuszczoną masę czekoladową schłodzić w lodówce przez kilka godzin a najlepiej prze całą noc.
Mascarpone, fondant and chocolate mass beat together until fluffy.
The first top of the cake arranged on a large pad, lubricate part of the mass (best to divide the mass into equal parts, then the layer will be equal), Cover the second top, It again put weight, Cover the top third, put the weight back and cover the last top. The last top and sides of the cake does not smear cream.
And now the fun begins with cutting 🙂 .
We need to identify, how much is to be our Zigzag. I narrowed his rectangular sponge cake by about 7cm, and shortened by about 5 cm in diameter. The pieces that were I formed the cabin and the still rough shape autku. Everything is shown in the manual picture, I think, it is better not impossible to describe, as just through photos of the next steps.
After the mass ratio and the initial shaping of the cab and sides of the cake should be very cool. Then pościnać sides respectively, zaoblić cabin, Lightning cut a smile and wytaliować toy car according to your pattern and cut out holes for the wheels.
Once we have given the desired shape, we have yet to autko „wytynkować”. This step is so important, as this is the final look of the cake.
For occupancy („wytynkowania”) cake:
- 400g butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons dark cocoa
All components mix and fluffy. The finished ground thoroughly and carefully smear cake. Before laying the fondant cake cool in the refrigerator.
Before rolling the fondant should knead like plasticine, to make it more soft and flexible (I did not do it and the first attempt to position it on the cake was a fiasco and panic downloading mass of cake). Roll out on a large piece of (much larger than our cake). Do not rehash too thinly, because the frosting is torn when applying. Rolled out put icing on a cake and a fairly rapid movements powciskać it in all the cavities and crevices of our toy cars, at the same time trying to smooth it. Unnecessary frosting cut (the whole autko rozwałkowałam 1kg of weight and a little sorry for her was). Smooth out all the bumps and decorate toy car according to your design or by. own invention.
Wheels are made of biscuits „hit” lined in icing. The individual decorative elements from adhering to the toy cars on the protein, You can also do light frosting and stick to it, or obtain a special glue to icing.
my glass = 250ml
The most important, This project have 🙂
Preliminary design of Lightning.
I've podocinany, zaoblony and ready to „plastering”.
Plastered and smoothed.
Application of the hardest part of the whole cake – at least for me.
And the end result is 🙂 .
