- Surround the central cylinder you just made with a torus made with the white dough
- The second layer will be done in the opposite with respect to the first one: the cylinder must be white and its diameter have to be         the same of the previous one
- The last layer should be done like the first one
- The different layers must be separated with a little albumen
- Repeat this step for every cupcake

Step 5: Bake It
