Ingredients:
  • Sugar 175g
  • Eggs chicken 3 pcs.
  • Flour, wheat 225 g
  • Baking powder 3 tsp.
  • Lemon 1 pc.
  • Butter 175 g
  • Lemon 2 pcs.
  • Butter 20 g
  • Eggs chicken 2 pcs.
  • Sugar 100 g
  • Cream 100 ml
  • Chocolate white 200 g
  • 5 g of syrup
  • Food coloring 2 g
  • Confectionery mastic 50 g
Instructions
  • Step 1 Let's start with the ganache cream. For this we need white chocolate and cream in a ratio of 2: 1.
  • Step 2 Crush the chocolate.
  • Step 3 Bring the cream to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate to the cream.
  • Step 4 Stir until the chocolate dissolves. It is better to use a submerged blender to obtain a consistency of condensed milk.
  • Step 5 Pour the cream into the bowl and close it tightly with a food film so that a crust does not form. Remove the cream in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (you can leave it for the night or even for a few days).
  • Step 6 For the cakes we need softened butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder, flour and lemon.
  • Step 7 Remove the zest and squeeze the juice of one lemon.
  • Step 8 In a large bowl, add all the ingredients needed for the dough: softened butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder, flour, zest and lemon juice.
  • Step 9 Slightly mix all the ingredients (so that the flour does not scatter), then whip the dough with a mixer.
  • Step 10 Put the dough in the mold.
  • Step 11 Bake in a preheated oven to 180 ° C for about 50 minutes (for a shape 17 cm in diameter).
  • Step 12 Finished biscuit cool and cut into 3 cakes.
  • Step 13 Prepare a classic lemon cream.
  • Step 14 Lubricate the bottom cake with cream.
  • Step 15 Do the same with the rest of the cakes. We do not lubricate the top with cream.
  • Step 16 Take out the chilled ganache. If it is too thick, stir it for a few seconds.
  • Step 17 Lubricate the top and sides of the cake with chocolate ganache.
  • Step 18 To smooth the unevenness, use a hot metal knife in boiling water.
  • Step 19 For sugar colors we take mastic, dye and molasses. You can immediately purchase the mastic of the desired color.
  • Step 20 On the surface sprinkled with powdered sugar roll a small plate of painted mastic.
  • Step 21 Make cuts on one side.
  • Step 22 Next, roll the plate with a tube. For reliable "gluing" the petals we use molasses on the tip of the toothpick.
  • Step 23 Cut off the excess mastic at the base of the flower.
  • Step 24 In this way, we make the necessary number of colors and leave them to dry for several hours in a closed container at room temperature.
  • Step 25 Next - your flight of fantasy. Flowers can be planted directly on ganache, or pre-wrap the cake with mastic. Good luck in your work!
