11  COOKING / Dessert / Princess cake on: March 23, 2013 09:56:59 AM

I don't think it's a cake specifically for princesses, but that's what they're called anyway. Dad requested one for his birthday, but unfortunately he's lactose intolerant, mom is gluten intolerant and there are a couple more allergies that keep us from buying cake from bakeries. So this is made of gluten free sponge cake with layers of raspberry jam, lactose free vanilla sauce and low lactose cream topped with a lid of green marzipan. And a marzipan rose.

Unfortunately I had two different shades of green marzipan and didn't quite make the lid large enough the first time... So it's got a few Frankenstein seams I'm not too proud of. But hey, if it's tasty I'm happy (dinner is starting, so I'll report back in a few hours!)

Aaaaand a recipe for the gluten free sponge (I'm metric, sorry):

50 grams of butter
1 dl boiling water
2 eggs
2 dl sugar
3 dl gluten free flour mix
2 tsp baking powder

Set the oven to 175 degrees Celcius. Melt the butter with the boiling water. Grab a bowl and add eggs and sugar, whisk until fluffy. Then add the baking powder to the flour mix, stir and add to the eggs and sugar. Finally add the water and butter mixture and whisk it all up. Pour into a breaded cake tin and bake for 30 minutes or until spongy and golden.

I used two of these sponges for my cake, sliced in halves. If you're more skilled with the cake knife you might double the recipe and bake it all at once.

Ooh, those look yummy! I'm not lactose intolerant, but I think you've just inspired me to try something... *runs to kitchen*

Aww, it looks like she's wearing a pretty spring flower. Smiley Love the work, never been much good with doilies myself.

Ooh, that sounds lovely. I've got some salady-type things growing in pots, a bit of arugula and other fast-growing things that I won't get out before the snow goes. It's a little early to start tomatoes and cucumbers here, but I was thinking of getting some bush tomatoes to grow in the window!

Raised beds are awesome! Gotta love not bending down to weed every 5 minutes.

Yes, there's still snow outside. It's an unusually cold March, even here! But I can't just not start prepotting because the weather doesn't agree with me. Grin This is the first batch of stuff that's going into the garden. I've got kale, garden beans and swiss chard in little individual tubes. They're newspaper rolls, so I can stick them straight into the garden and not damage any roots. Plus the paper seems to keep in moisture really well, which is an unexpected bonus.

So what has everyone else been up to? Any itching to start planting?

I love the idea! I don't know what the restrictions on sending food items across borders is, though. So that worries me a little bit since I obviously don't want my delicious gluten free crackers or superfood granola mix to get caught in customs. Undecided
