Bumble bee mini cakes


For the cake

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the sugar, the butter, the vanilla, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 5-6 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the cocoa powder, the baking powder, the salt, and mix. Add to the mixer’s bowl and beat at low speed.
  • Add the juice in three batches and keep beating for 1 minute.
  • Transfer the mixture to a buttered 28x36 cm baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove and let it cool.

For the topping

  • Prepare the crème patisserie and, while it is still hot, spread it over the cold cake.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and make sure it touches the surface of the cream to prevent a skin from forming.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours so it chills well and thickens.
  • Add the gelatin into a bowl with cold water and allow 4-5 minutes for it to soften.
  • Place a saucepan over medium heat and add the jam, the water, and heat it. Attention, it shouldn’t boil!
  • Turn off the heat and add the gelatin, after draining it well. Stir until it melts.
  • Spread over the cold crème patisserie and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until it thickens.
  • Cut into 12 pieces.

To assemble

  • Arrange the peach compote pieces on your working surface.
  • Spread the chocolate in strips over the peaches.
  • Place the candy eyeballs and the almond slivers on each peach, transfer on top of the cake and serve.
