Recipe of Covering Paste cake


Preheat oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C) and grease baking pans with baking spray.


Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe according to package directions. Divide the cookie mix between the baking pans and bake for about 30-35 minutes until done. Immediately after baking, dump them onto a cake rack and allow to cool.


Prepare 300 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream according to instructions on the package.


Cut the cookies with the cake saw 2x and fill them with jam of your choice and a thin layer of buttercream and also spread the entire outside with a thin layer of buttercream. Place the cakes in the refrigerator and let set for at least half an hour.


Knead the Covering Paste smoothly and roll it out to a thickness of 2 mm and line the cakes with it. Press a pattern in the small cake with the diamond cutter and paste pearls in the intersections.

TIP! You can make this cake in white, pink, red, blue and black! Check out our Covering Paste & the colours here.


Make a roll from the Covering Paste and roll it out very thin. Press the impression mat into this and with the strip cutter make a strip about 3 to 4 cm wide that fits around the cake and stick it with edible glue.


Press four dowels into the large cake and cut to size. Place the small cake on top with a cardboard cut to size if necessary. If necessary, put a lick of buttercream between the two cakes against sliding.


Coat the Styrofoam balls with piping gel and cover them with a piece of thin fondant. Stick the balls with a little buttercream on top of the cake.
