Halloween recipe: Creepy Delicious Graveyard Cake
The same thing every time you visit the bakery: Bread, rolls, crumble buns. But if you order a zombie cake, a Dracula muffin or a plain graveyard cake, you'll be stared at with uncomprehending eyes.
Halloween Jack with its master chef Le Maître de Massacre, has long campaigned to end discrimination against creepy baked goods lovers.
Today he shows that the preference for a beautiful undead graveyard ambience and cake enjoyment are not mutually exclusive. The result is the perfect Halloween cake!
Chop or grate half of the chocolate into not too small pieces and set aside.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat until stiff peaks form.
In a bowl, mix the butter with the sugar and vanilla sugar.
Add a little salt
Then stir in the egg yolks.
Add the cornstarch, cocoa powder and 3 teaspoons of baking powder.
Stir everything well and refine with rum flavoring.
Then carefully fold in the chopped chocolate and egg whites.
Use a baking tray with a high edge.
Line it with baking paper or grease the pan.
Pour the batter into the baking pan and spread it evenly. Let it bake for about 60 minutes at medium heat bake.
Now let's get to the most fun part of it.
Shaping the figures. The best way to do this is to use marzipan paste.
Since this is very sticky, you should sprinkle the work surface with a little flour.
Cut and roll the marzipan into finger sized sausages and cut them into finger length pieces.
Use your hands to model the characteristic shape of a finger.
Use the back of a knife to create small folds and the structure of the knuckles.
Press the nail board into the finger with the tip of the knife and carefully insert an almond leaf as a fingernail.
Insert a toothpick into the bottom of the marzipan finger to hold it in the cake.
Create the five fingers in different sizes, since the fingers of a hand are all different sizes.
Look at your hand beforehand and model the fingers, as far as possible, after this model.
Let's turn back to the now cooled cake.
Heat some apricot jam with a little water in a water bath in a ratio of 4:1.
Let the mixture boil briefly and then coat the cake with it.
You can sprinkle it with cocoa powder.
This gives the graveyard surface an earthy touch :--)
Coat the sides with liquid chocolate.
Heat this, like the apricot jam in a water bath.
Add a dash of oil to the chocolate.
Last of all, place the marzipan elements on top.
Use the remains of the boiled apricot jam as "glue".
Of course, there are many other ways to create a cemetery cake besides the hand from the grave.
How about an empty grave or a zombie?!
I'm sure you can think of many more ideas.
But for now, bon appétit!
