Recipe of llama cake


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


Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as indicated on the package and divide between the two baking pans. Bake the cake for about 30-35 minutes until done. Let the cake cool down by using a cooling grid.


Prepare 300 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package and flavour with the FunCakes Flavour Paste.


Using the cake leveler, cut the cakes both 2x. Start and end with a bottom of a cake, this way you get a nice straight cake. Fill the layers with elderflower buttercream and spread with buttercream all around. Let the cake cool and harden well in the refrigerator.


Sprinkle on a baking sheet in long strips against each other the pink, purple and green FunCakes Sanding Sugars. Cut two pieces of baking paper the same diameter as the cake and place it against the bottom and top. Now gently roll the cake through the sugar with your hands on the baking paper until well coated. On the top, sprinkle the silver sugar.


Stick the llama topper into the cake and sprinkle some of the medley in between.
