Lili's Birthday cake

30/10/2014 07:12

A couple of days ago was no ordinary day, without the birthday of my best friend, Lili. My best friend for very many yearsbridesmaid at my wedding, godmother to my daughter .... This year, she snuck away on holiday on her birthday, but the day before she left, I surprised her with this suitcase cake who is a regular carrot cake dressed in brown marzipan and details of sugar paste. Hope you had a wonderful Birthday loved Lili! See you in a few days!

6 eggs,
4.5 cup sugar,
4.5 cups flour;
3 tsp bicarbonate of soda,
3 tsk cinnamon,
1.5 teaspoons of salt,
1.5 tsp vanilla sugar,
2.3 dl of soybean oil,
6 dl carrots.
100 grams of butter,
2pts Philadelphia cheese (natural),
250 grams of powdered sugar;
1 teaspoon vanilla.
Here's how: Whisk together the eggs and sugar fluffy. Mix in a separate bowl: flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla sugar. Pour over the egg mixture and whisk a little longer. Grate the carrots on the smallest of the grater, squeeze out all the juice and mix with the oil. Pour over the carrots in the batter and stir in with a spoon. Pour it in the form of about 20x30cm, dressed in parchment paper and bake in the lower part of the oven for about an hour at 190 degrees C.
Prepare the glaze by stirring together room temperature butter, cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla sugar. Spread the icing over the cake after it has cooled. Decorating as desired. I recomend to make as many details as possible days before you must bake the cake, to give the sugar paste  a chance to dry and it will not be so much to do at once, either.
