I understand the British weather is not very exciting, but we can always make life better with a nice cake.
Ingredients: egg, sugar, milk, flour, rapeseeds oil, elderflower juice, gelatine, double cream, fruit jam, coconut flake，lotus biscuits, Savoiardi lady fingers, food colour (blue and green), sea-life shaped chocolate.
Separate 5 egg’s egg yolk and egg white, add 30 g of sugar in egg yolk,50 g of sugar in egg white when beating it. You can also add some vanilla seeds in the egg yolk.
Mix the egg yolk with 50 ml of rapeseeds oil, after mixing them will add 90 g of flour. Fold egg white into the mixture. Put the mixture into a cake tin, oven 170° with fan, 40 mins.
You can make a big one and cut in half, or make two cakes.
Spare jam on one (side of) cake, spare whipped cream on another one (side). I used passion fruit jam in this case.
Spare the cream all over the cake, put Savoiardi lady fingers around the cake, use a piece of ribbon to hold it tight.
How to make the blue and green ocean water: Simply put 2 pieces of gelatin leaves into 200 ml elderflower juice, heat up the juice, wait for the gelatin totally melted.
Took 2 containers, put 100 ml jelly juice in each container, one add a drop of blue food colour, another add a drop of the green. Put the gelatin mixture into the fridge overnight.
Left to right: blue jelly, green jelly, coconut flake, lotus biscuits (blended)
Put sea-life shaped chocolate on top. It’s done!
Hope this cake will bring you some summer feeling during the raining spring weather.
