Prepare 400 g FunCakes Mix for Choco Sponge Cake as indicated on the package. Grease the baking pans with baking spray. Divide the batter between the two baking pans, bake the sponge cakes in about 30-35 minutes and let the cakes cooldown by using a cooling grid.
Tip! Isn’t your oven big enough to bake two sponge cakes at once? No problem, you’re perfectly fine baking one cake after the other. Just mix the batters for the two cakes separately as well. If you leave the sponge cake batter for too long before baking it, it will loose the air. And we don’t want that! For the quantities of the single cakes, check our quantity table.
Prepare 200 g FunCakes Special Edition Mix for Chocolate Ganache as indicated on the package. Let it cool down a bit and beat it on the highest speed until it has turned into a thick firm cream. Add some violet flavour paste to the ganache.
Prepare 150 g FunCakes Special Edition Mix for Enchanted Cream® Choco and 225 g of FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream® as indicated on the packages.
Cut the sponge cakes both twice with the cake leveler and fill alternately with ganache, Enchanted Cream® Choco and Enchanted Cream®. Cover the edges entirely with white Enchanted Cream®. Use the turntable and the icing smoother to get it nice and tight and put it in the fridge to let it stiffen.
Divide the white Enchanted Cream® into 4 portions and colour them with the gels in your desired colours. Place the tips in decorating bags and fill them with all the creams and ganache according to your own chocie. Use an adaptor for the small tips enabling you to switch the tips easily
Pipe half the cake diagonally with all kinds of rosettes and drop flowers and finish with tufts on top of the cake, using the 3 large tips. Put the cake in the fridge for half an hour.
Heat the Choco Drip Rose Gold and fill the mini tablet mold with it. Let this set in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes. Slide the drip out of the bottle down the edge of the cake. Sprinkle some sugar strands on the tufts and place a mini tablet on top.
