And what could be cooler then a good tasting marzipan cake with an included rainbow?
This is a reciep i came up with about 17 months ago, to my own birthday.
I since then enhanced it, until even i ate it. (i'm usually not into cakes...)
It not only looks really cool and tastes good, it also wont dry out as fast as a normal cake would.
I published the reciepe a year ago on my blog and on my board (in german), and i thought that this has to be on instructables.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
I am only used to the metrical system, but for your convenience i used a converting table, to also give you imperial measurements. But maybee you still wanna check that yourself.
I hope Cups are allright? If not, tell me.
If your confused with something, look at the pictures.
375g flour (3 & 3/4 Cups)
250g sugar (1 & 1/2 Cups)
250ml Oil (1/4 quart) dont use oliveoil or any other oil with taste
200g powdered sugar (2 Cups)
200g marzipan (1 Cup )
125ml water (1/10 Quart)
2 packages of vanilla sugar
1/2 package backing powder
Food Dye, 4 would be nice.
Artificial rum flavor (so its kids compatible)
Butter (less then a hand full)
4 Bowls (yeah really)
26cm (10 & 1/4 inches) springform pan
Step 2: Preparing the Pan and the Oven
Prehead the oven to 160c (320 Fahrenheit) top & bottomheat.
Trust me, don't use hot air or some other stuff, a cake tastes best with top & bottomheat.
Put a chunk of butter in the pan, and smear it all over the inside of it.
If its worth doing, its worth overdoing.
Use your hand or some kitchenpaper to do it.
