Recipe of Lemon Meringue Poppy Seed cake


Preheat the oven to 175°C (convection oven 160°C).


Prepare 250 g of FunCakes Mix for Biscuit Deluxe as indicated on the package and spoon the poppy seeds through the batter as you see fit. Put the batter in the greased baking pan and bake it for about 30-35 minutes. Let the cake cool using a cooling rack.


Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package and season it with the lemon meringue flavor paste.


Cut the cake twice with the cake saw and fill the cake with the lemon buttercream. Then also decorate the cake on the outside with a thin layer of buttercream. Use the side scraper to get it nice and tight.


Put the cake in the fridge for half an hour so that the buttercream can stiffen and then cover it again with a thick layer of lemon buttercream. Then smooth it again with the side scraper.


Cut some thin slices of lemon, cut them in half and place in a fan on the cake. Decorate with some edible violets and poppy seeds.
