Recipe of Marzipan dome cakes


Preheat the oven to 180 °C (convection oven 160 °C).


Prepare 500 g of FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes according to the instructions on the package and fill the half spheres to about 2/3 with batter. Use the remaining batter to bake a few more cakes later. Bake the cakes in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes. Let the cakes cool down slightly in the silicone mold and then carefully remove them and place them on a cooling grid to cool further.


Prepare 125 g of FunCakes Mix for buttercream as indicated on the package and season with the FunCakes Lemon Flavor Paste. If necessary, cut a small cap off the cakes so that they are firm and cover them with Lemon Buttercream.


Knead the marzipan very smoothly, roll it out to a thickness of about 2 mm and use it to cover the mini cakes.


Divide the leftover buttercream into 3 portions and color each portion with the FunCakes Color Gels. Put this separately in a decorating bag with # 032 and pipe some colored tufts on top of the cakes. Sprinkle some confetti and nonpareils over it.
