Princess Cake or prinsesstårta (original name in Swedish).
- Cake layers
- A green marzipan layer for the top
- Whipped cream
- Vanilia cream
- 2 dl whipped cream
- 2 egg yellows
- 2 table spoons maize flour
- 1 table spoon sugar
- ½ tea spoon vanilla powder
- Powder sugar
- Strawberry jam (optional)
Sweet cake layers can be bought ready. If you use them, the cake will take much less time to make (if you want to bake cake layers, the time to make the cake will probably double). The same goes for marzipan, you should be able to buy a already flattened piece of marzipan.
For the vanilla cream, mix all ingredients except for the vanilla powder and heat it to just below cooking point. Whip it for a while as it is bubbling (but not boiling!). Let it cool off for some minutes and then add the vanilla powder.
Put the vanilla cream between the layers and the whipped cream on top of the cake layers. If you want to have jam in the cake, replace one of the layers of vanilla cream with jam. the top layer of whipped cream should be thick and domed.
Cover the whole cake with the marzipan like on the picture and spray some powder sugar on it. Store in the fridge until it shall be eaten.
