For the New Year I prepared the Cake "Royal" from the famous Frederick Cases, the recipe is in my cooking blog shared Victoria (kinda_cook), for which I am very grateful. The cake is very tasty and is prepared with ordinary ingredients. The amount of ingredients I bring to the form, size 18X18 cm, although she cooked a tremendous cake for big company (anyone can count the number on your form - simple maths will be useful). As something special to decorate I failed simply because of lack of time (any owner understands that in addition to the cake needed to cook whatnot). However, my design to the taste of the cake certainly didn't hurt. Cake lovers chocolate mousse cakes and, most importantly, no gelatin in this mousse not. PS: do not worry about this long description, read I think longer than to cook the cake itself. The result is worth a little hard work.
