Magic forest cake
Here's my recipe for my self-made rustic-rural, pre-Christmas magic forest cake.
With this recipe, I participated in the Bakemycake Award 2017 for the first time this year.
Here is my recipe for my own rustic rural, full of joy I have this year the personal invitation of Melanie (iamfemme.at) followed. I was chosen as one of 50 bloggers to join the Bakemycake Award. We got all 2 packages sponsored, one from dr. Oetker and one of Mömax. Well, since I have no experience with such awards, I thought, I'll let me surprise.
My surprise was very great when I first received the packet from Dr. Ing. Oetker got. There were a lot of great baking utensils in there and, frankly, I was amazed at how much this company tasted this package. Great bakery decorations, fondant in all colors and many other useful things were included. Below I have again photographed the two packages, so I can show you. When Mömax Paketchen my joy was a bit more decent. This included a cake tin assortment, but nevertheless equally useful.
The task was to come up with a recipe for yourself and use as much of the stuff as possible. Still, it had to be easy to bake and of course, the photos and the text would be rated. For the winner in my category Cakes & Sweets there is a kitchen machine by Kitchenaid to win, and then the recipe would be printed in the Viennese woman.
Even though I do not really know what I have to say about such an Award Back-Contest, I got down to work and within a day I came up with a special recipe, which I now want to share with you. I've tried to use as much of the gift assortment as possible, keep it simple, and shape it to make it taste good too. Believe me, it was the first time I worked with fondant. I've always shied away from that because you kept hearing that this was not so easy. I have done it and I tell you, it is not so hard, at least I think that my cake has got a pretty passable look. Of course, I choose as a motive my passion for rural life and I think that the Hirsch-Shilloutte is doing very well. If you do not like it, you can always change the motif and decoration of the cake according to your preferences. There are all doors open for you.
