Products in the CAKE decoration.
Make biscuit-walnut dough:
proteins separated from the yolks.
8 proteins vzbit with a pinch of salt until stiff foam
add the sugar, continuing to beat until the sugar is dissolved (I did everything with a whisk, and mixer).
Turn on the oven at 175*C.
Protein sugar mass add ground almonds and flour, mix well.
Vystelim the form with baking paper.
For the normal cake it is better to take a round shape with a diameter of 20 cm, But I wanted a "square" a little more, so he took a rectangular shape.
The dough pour in the form,
bake for 15-20 minutes at 175*C. let Cool in the form!
From the cooled cake cut out a oval for "maps".
Pruning does not eat!, even though they are delicious. They are still useful to us.
Cut lengthwise into 2 layer with a serrated knife (a regular round cake cut into 3 layers).
Now cook the caramel. Here everything should be done quickly so that the caramel 1. not burnt, 2. not frozen ahead of time.
In a clean Cup/saucepan, heated the sugar over medium heat. The photo shows: first, the sugar collected in clumps and then starts to melt. At this point, switch the fire to small, all the time interfere (and I still need to photograph ;))
When almost all the sugar melted and turned brown, add the butter (stir-stir-stir) and turn off the heat.
Turned a light brown caramel, which is necessary quickly-quickly spread on the cakes.
For the chocolate layer, simply melt the butter with the chocolate (I was nuts, and melted).
Apply melted chocolate on the caramel layer.
Grease cream cakes, put them on top of each other, daubed the sides. put into the fridge to harden the cream.
All, the cake is ready! It is possible to decorate as desired.
Before me stood a task - to draw a map of the world:)
Trim the crusts are crushed and these babies put future "continents".
The night before I made some blue Jell-o (400 ml mineral water 50 g sugar - a little warmed up, added food coloring blue and 6 plates of gelatin. Stir until dissolved gelatin and put in the fridge).
For "seas and oceans" frozen jelly "broke" the plug-spoon into pieces and put on cooled cake.
Well, and then put where you have "mountains", white and colored coconut portrayed as "eternal ice", "the plains" and "desert".
Yes, the sides of the cake decorated with chocolate sticks with liquid lemon and orange filling.
