Recipe of Twinkle Twinkle dripcake


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


Prepare 400 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake according to the instructions on the package. Divide the batter between two baking pans and bake the biscuits in a preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes. Let them cool down by using a cooling grid.


Prepare 300 g FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream® according to the instructions on the package.


Knead half a teaspoon of FunCakes Tylo Powder through the sugar paste. Roll out the sugar paste to a thickness of about 2 mm and cut out stars to put on wire and to stick to the cake.


Cut the silver and gold wire in half with scissors or pliers, dip the end in the edible glue and stick it into the stars. Let it air dry for 2 hours. Ideally, make this a day in advance. When the stars are dry, color them with the FunCakes gold and silver dusts.


Roll out some sugar paste to a thickness of about 3 mm and cut out a half moon with a sharp knife. Let it dry, preferably overnight otherwise it can bend over when it has to stand upright. When the sugar paste moon is dry, give it a golden color with the FunCakes golden dusts.


Roll the white sugar paste into balls of different sizes and place them against and on top of each other. Roll out a piece of fondant very thinly. Spread the balls with edible glue and cover them with the fondant. Cut away the sides of the fondant. Now you have the big cloud topper.


Stick a skewer with some FunCakes Royal Icing on the back of the moon and stick it in the clouds. Pierce the stars on wire, if necessary, cut the iron wires to the desired size.


Cut the sponge cakes both 2-3 times with the cake leveler. Flavor the Enchanted Cream® with the flavor paste and fill layers with the cream. Cover the entire outside of the cake with a thin layer of cream and let it set in the fridge for half an hour.


Color the rest of the Enchanted Cream® old pink by mixing it with the peach and beige coloring gel. Cover the entire outside of the cake with this one more time, now put on a thicker layer. Place the cake in the fridge for another half hour to let it set.


Heat the FunCakes Choco Drip Gold according to the instructions on the package in the microwave and let the drip slide down the edge of the cake. Put it back in the fridge for a while so that the drip can stiffen and start to shine nicely.


Make paint from rejuvenator and FunCakes golden ginger dust and paint the drip extra gold with a small brush.


Stick the little gold stars and the little silver stars against the cake. You don’t have to use glue, it sticks to the cream. Finish te cake with the cloud topper on top.
