Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe according to the instructions on the package. Grease the baking pan with Bake Release Spray and raise the baking pan with a strip of parchment paper on the inside of the pan. Spoon the batter into the pan and bake the sponge cake for about 30-35 minutes. Let the cake cool down by using a cooling grid.
Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Swiss Meringue Buttercream according to the instructions on the package.
Prepare 100 g FunCakes Mix for Royal icing according to the instructions on the package. Color the royal icing red and put it in a decorating bag with adapter and tip #102. Pipe small flower buds on a sheet of parchment paper. Make sure that the thick part of the nozzle is on the baking paper and make a kind of loop. This is your first petal.
Now place the nozzle perpendicular to the bottom of your first sprayed leaf and curl the second leaf over it. Let it air dry, preferably overnight.
Cut the sponge cake with the cake leveler 2 or 3 times and fill with jam of your choice and the swiss meringue buttercream. Cover the entire outside with a layer of cream and let it set in the refrigerator. Then apply a second layer of cream and let it set again in the refrigerator.
Draw twigs with leaves and flowers on the cake with the edible markers and stick a red flower bud here and there with some royal icing.
