Dough for cakes and other parts of the cake I prepare is not quite the usual way... Never used any leavening agents and food additives. Put the sourdough in a glass of warm milk, 2 cups flour, 4 tablespoons sugar, 50 grams of baking with natural yeast, let stand in a warm place for a couple of hours. For dark cakes, in advance to buy a loaf of black rye bread, cut into thin slices, dried biscuits, dry biscuits slightly browned in the oven and grind into a fine bread crumb.
In approaching the dough add the eggs, melted butter, 100 grams of honey... give everything a Good whisk until smooth and foamy mass. Divide roughly in half, for dark and white dough .
For white dough, add 200 gr. semolina . For a darker dough, add 2 tablespoons cocoa and rye crackers. Let stand a couple of hours and add in a batter of flour, mix to desired thickness and place in a warm place for another couple of hours. Biscuits and semolina gives the cakes a very interesting, unusual shade .
While preparing the dough, make watermelon... Cut separately the core and the flesh, with the crusts cut off the outer green hard rind, cut all into slices of 1 × 1 cm, add 200 gr. honey and a little sugar, put on to cook on low heat, stirring, until fully cooked honey candied fruits. Soak 100 grams. food gelatin in two cups of warm water and put on a steam bath until dissolved gelatin
Coming up the dough for dark cakes roll out into a thin layer on the bottom of the base size of a split form and send it in to bake with the chopped letters from thinly rolled dark and white dough. The letters I cut that such homemade forms, but can be applied to an alphabetical set of sandboxes, which can be purchased at the toy store.
Laid on the bottom of a split form of a baked round cake from a dark dough, spread on it the candied fruits, which are pre-added 6-8 tablespoons dissolved gelatin and chopped fresh or canned pineapple. Good promycelium the lower crust honey fat from candied fruit and spread, as seen in the photo, triangular cookies sides of cake.
On top of candied pineapple and spread a portion of baked letters and cookies, on top of the impregnated tuketim the honey and pour a thin layer of cottage cheese and cream ground which prepare the following: Finely crumble 2 packets of cheese, add three cups of cream, a Cup of honey and half of the remaining, cooled gelatin.

Spread chocolate frosted letters the word "ABVGDEYKA"
On the inner perimeter of the inscriptions turn of the oiled Whatman paper cylinder with a height slightly above the size of the letters fixed in the rim of a stapler that does not spin, set on the cheesecake base, inside the cylinder put the letters and fill in the void of the watermelon cubes with the pineapple and pour prepared watermelon and honey jelly, which prepare in the following way: Pressed and filtered watermelon juice to mix with 150 grams of honey and a second remaining half of the dissolved gelatin, the color was more saturated, you can add the blackcurrant syrup... Just make no mistake committed by me... Give a little to harden jelly , and already pozastaven fill the void . too runny jelly leaked out and filled the letters of the text, which is not desirable. Put the cake overnight in the fridge and in the morning pull out, remove the split mold, paper ring, cutting it with scissors in a few places... On the top base of the cake we put funny picture colour caramel from the syringe and carry quickly to the school to traditional tea party dedicated to the opening of the new season!
