Sweet Bunny

I bought a very seasonal 2-piece cake form in the shape of a rabbit. The recipe for the cake was on the box and sounded easy enough. Separate 1 egg and beat the egg white stiff adding 35g sugar while doing so.

To the egg yolk add 70g soft butter, 35g sugar, half a pack of vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk all of these together until you get a soft dough.
Add 90g flour with half a teaspoon of baking powder mixed in and then fold in the egg white.

Before filling the form I had two butter the two parts seperately, assemble it and dust the inside with breadcrumbs. A very fiddly job, indeed!

The dough looked fairly dry to me and also I thought there was not enough of it to fill the form.

As I have never done this before, I did not know whether it was supposed to look like this. I was a bit worried that it would end up in a disaster. I put the whole thing in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes. When I took it out, what I could see looked fine, but that was just the bottom bit.

The instructions said I had to wrap it in a damp towel for 10 minutes. This is probably just to keep up the suspension. Nervewracking stuff.

Moment of truth…

Looked just fine to me, actually.

I decorated it with chocolate and other bits and pieces. It now needs to dry and I will finish the masterpiece tomorrow.
