Prepare 400 grams of FunCakes Mix for Chocolate Ganache as indicated on the package and let it cool down.
Preheat the oven to 150°C (convection oven 130°C).
Prepare 250 grams of FunCakes Mix for Chocolate Sponge Cake as indicated on the package. Cover two baking trays using parchment paper and divide the batter onto the baking trays. Bake the sponge cakes in approx. 10 – 12 minuten golden. Place one biscuit upside down on clean tea towel, remove the parchment paper and roll it up using the tea towel. Let the cake cool down and repeat this for the other biscuit.
Carefully unroll the sponge cakes and apply a layer of blueberry buttercream. Do not overdo this otherwise you will roll the buttercream out of the cake! Roll the sponge cakes back up using the tea towels, wrap them in cling film and let set in the fridge for an hour.
Beat the cooled down ganache and apply a thin layer on the cake rolls. Put it in the frigde for half an hour and apply another layer of ganache using a spatula. The cakes don’t have to be smooth and place it back in the fridge for an half hour.
Knead 100 grams of white fondant and roll it out on a surface covered with powder. Cut out the holly leaves and allow it to air dry. Create your own paint using the rejuvenator and the gold dust. Paint the holly leaves gold.
Get the cake rolls out of the frigde and decorate with the holly leaves, red chocolate balls and cocaopowder.
