Earth Cake

Method

For the cake

  • Preheat oven over 180ο C (352* F) set to Fan.
  • Butter and line up with parchment paper the round surface of the 2 special round molds. Leave a 2 cm margin from the top of the mold.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat the butter and the sugar for 3-5 minutes on medium speed until the butter is fluffy and the ingredients incorporated.
  • Lower the speed of the mixer and add the vanilla extract. Add the eggs one by one waiting for each to be incorporated before adding the next one. The mixture will have the desired texture when the flour is added.
  • When the eggs are incorporated, add the flour and the salt. Beat for a few seconds until incorporated.
  • Release the mixer’s bowl and equally divide the mixture into the two molds.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes. To see if baked, pierce with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the cake is ready.
  • Remove the molds from the oven and place them on a rack to cool down.
  • Turn out off pan and gently press the center of each hemisphere so that a small depression is formed (otherwise you might have to remove a part from the center).
  • Add the multicolored chocolates and cover the first hemisphere with the second one.

For the ganache

  • Cut the chocolate into pieces and place it in a bowl.
  • Transfer the bowl to a bain marie and melt the chocolate. Carefully remove the bowl from the bain marie.
  • Meanwhile, heat up the whipped cream in a pot over medium heat
  • When the whipped cream comes to a boil, remove the pot from heat. Pour all of the whipped cream to the bowl with the chocolate.
  • Mix with a silicone spatula (whisk) the chocolate and the whipped cream until they become a thick mixture.
  • Let it cool and pour on the cake.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours until the ganache thickens.

For the glaze

  • Beat the whites in meringue. Before it thickens, add the sugar, lemon juice and blue food coloring paste. Beat until it thickens and has a bright blue color. Using a spatula, cover all of the surface of the round cake. Press with the spatula in various places, so that the glaze becomes textured.
  • On the kitchen counter, mix by hand the sugar paste along with the green food coloring paste until you have a green sugar paste.
  • Roll out the green sugar paste. It needs to be 0,5 cm thick.
  • Print the world pan and cut the continents with a scissor.
  • Place the pieces of the continents on the sugar paste. Cut the outline of the continents.
  • Stick the pieces on the glaze and press gently.
