Ingredients & Method

 

1/4 cup (1/2 dl) Lemon curd

1/2 cup (1dl) Whipped Cream

(1 tsp vanilla creme powder)

A bit or dark chocolate

 

If you do the lemon curd yourself prepare it a day before and let it cool down overnight. You can also buy ready-to-use version. Prepare the whip by mixing it with vanilla creme powder if you use that.

 

Start filling the cake by adding all the lemon curd as an even layer on top of the base 1. On top of that add all the whip. Then add a bit of dark chocolate. Finally, add the base 2 on top.

Ingredients & Method

 

1/2 cup (1 dl) white whipped cream

1 cup (2 dl) brown whipped cream

1/3 cup (0.5-1dl) yellow whipped cream

 

Cover the top and the edges with a thin layer of white whipped cream. Then pipe the brown one to the edges of the cake and decorate the top of the edges with yellow piping.

 

Note to self: You can use either brown food coloring or dark cocoa powder to color the brown whip. If you use cocoa powder make sure there is no clumps in it, because if there is the piping won’t be even. That’s what happened to me with this cake.
