Cooking method
Boil water with margarine and salt, pour flour into boiling water and stir terribly at a trot with a spatula in advance to form a homogeneous mass, for there were no lumps. Continue to stir for fire until the dough does not brew and will not otlipat from the walls of the bowl. Remove from heat, stirring to cool in advance warm. Eggs beat in portions of 2-3 pieces. and knead in advance the formation of a homogeneous glisian mass.
Put the mass in the pastry bag and squeeze out the baking paper for which the cake contour is drawn in advance. Draw the outline of the dough, squeezing the tube out of the bag, as thick as a finger. Then we “connect” the contour with membranes. The stove is already in a preheated oven for medium heat near 45-50 minutes, 20-25 do not open the oven. Cakes smeared with cream, laying them for no reason, lay for the membrane crosswise, let it stand in the cold for 3-4 hours (better for the night).
From above you put fruit (kiwi, orange, banana, tangerine, for the beauty of pomegranate seeds if grapes). Pour transparent "Jelly for cake".

450 grams of powdered sugar

Butter glaze

The portion is calculated for a product weighing 450 g:
125 g (1/2 cup) of softened unsalted butter
225 g (2 cups) sifted icing sugar
10 ml (2 tsp) milk
5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla essence

This very popular glaze can be quickly made from butter, powdered sugar, flavoring agent and food coloring. Oil glaze looks great on the cake.

Put the butter in a bowl and whisk it with a wooden spoon or electric mixer in a fluffy mass.
Add milk powder and vanilla essence to the butter, as well as (optionally) a flavoring agent. Beat the mass until it becomes homogeneous.

In an even layer, apply the icing on the cake with a metal spatula knife (spatula). You can make patterns from it.

Oil cream


the portion is calculated for a product weighing 350 g
60 ml (4 tbsp.) Of water
75 g (1/3 cup) of refined white granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
150 g (2/3 cup) of softened unsalted butter

Butter cream is an exquisite filling and the basis for cake decorating.
Cooking butter cream takes more time, but it's worth it. This thick and plastic cream is good sandwich cakes, cover the cakes and put on them patterns. The cream remains for several hours at room temperature, but it is better to use it immediately after preparation. Do not whip the cream again, otherwise it will roll.

Pour water into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, remove from the heat and pour the granulated sugar. Heat gently until sugar dissolves.
Boil quickly until the liquid has the consistency of syrup. To test, remove the saucepan from the heat and put a drop of syrup on the convex side of a dry teaspoon. Take another spoon, press to the one with the syrup, and spread to the sides. The syrup should be pulled with a thin thread. If this does not work out, put the saucepan on the fire again, boil quickly and check again in a minute.

Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl. Continuing to beat, slowly pour a sugar syrup in a continuous stream. Beat until mixture is thick, light and cool. Raised mixer tips should leave a mark on the surface.

Beat the butter in a separate bowl until it becomes fluffy. Add the egg mixture to it gradually, beating well after each serving.
Put or pour in your chosen flavor and gently mix all with a spatula.

Protein cream

Protein cream is made correctly in syrup, not sugar. The syrup is brewed to the state - dipping a spoon into the syrup, and then into the cold water should turn out a sticky caramel. Squirrels need to be whipped separately for a very long time, so that there would be not just foam, but thick condensation after that with a thin stream of syrup. And in the end, be sure to add a little citric acid — it also gives the cream a hold. You can still add a little odor for the smell. And now the proportions: 4 protein, 1.5 tbsp. sugar (syrup) And make sure that the yolks do not get, and there is nothing fatty because of this, proteins can not be whipped. This recipe is tested, I studied at the pastry chef, true 7 years ago.

White Chocolate Butter Cream

We will need:
180 gr. chopped white chocolate
2.5 tbsp. flour
250 ml of milk
200 gr. Sahara

200 gr. butter

Pour the milk into the saucepan, add the flour and mix well so that there are no lumps.
Add sugar to milk and put on fire.
Bring the mixture to a boil and cook over low heat until thick, stirring constantly (so as not to burn).
Remove the saucepan from the heat and immediately add the chocolate.
Stir until the chocolate is completely dissolved and cool completely.

Beat the butter with a mixer until white, adding vanillin.
Gradually add chocolate mass to the butter and beat well until smooth.

My notes:
I did not boil the cream on the fire, but in the microwave.
If you have such an opportunity - be sure to try.

Cooking cream in the microwave has significant advantages.
- The cream will cook much faster than on the stove.
(only it is necessary to stir it every 20-30 seconds, especially at the very end)
- There is no risk that the cream will suddenly burn on the bottom.

just before decorating, let the cream stand in the fridge until thick!

DREAMCREAM "Charlotte"

Sugar-384g .; butter-422g .; whole milk, 250g .; 67g eggs; vanilla powder-4g; Cognac-1.6g. Exit 1000g. This cream has excellent taste, has a gentle melting cream. However, its stability during storage due to the presence of such products as milk, eggs, is much lower than creams on powdered sugar and condensed milk.
For this cream is prepared egg-milk syrup. Sugar c milk bring to a boil. Beat eggs for 5-7 minutes so that they do not curl up during the subsequent operation, up to 10% of sugar can be added to the egg mass. Gradually, hot milk with sugar is poured into the cauldron with beaten eggs, with a thin stream, if the milk is poured in immediately, the eggs will be rolled up. The resulting mass is sent to a water bath and boiled at a temperature of 104-105 ° C until thick (about 10 minutes). The egg-milk syrup is filtered and cooled to 20 ° C. Cooling the syrup should be quick, slow cooling can lead to folding eggs, in addition, on the surface of the syrup can form a thick dry crust. To quickly cool the syrup, put the dishes with the syrup in cold water. To avoid a crust, the syrup should be stirred periodically.
Butter is cut into pieces and beat 7 -10 min. on a quiet run, then switch to high speed, gradually add the egg-milk syrup in small portions, brandy, vanilla powder and beat another 10-15 minutes.
Signs of readiness of the cream include a 2.5-fold increase in volume, a smooth-glossy surface with bubbles appearing. The cream, raised on a wooden spatula, should slowly slide off of it, the rapid slipping of the cream indicates that it contains more moisture. Such a cream will not keep its shape well and during storage the syrup may separate from the oil.
Full use of syrup, established by the formulation, testifies to the good quality of the oil and the readiness of the cream. With low quality butter cream looks like a curd mass and when jigging does not retain a clear pattern and shape.
Sometimes Charlotte cream is prepared on condensed milk. It is prepared in the same way, only water is added to the condensed milk, beaten eggs and boiled in a water bath for 2-3 minutes, the mass is well mixed, and then rubbed through a sieve. Quality Requirement:
homogeneous mass of yellowish, well-preserved shape. Chocolate Cream "Charlotte"
Sugar-371g .; butter-382g .; whole milk-247g .; eggs- 66g .; cocoa powder-48g .; 1.4 g vanilla powder; Cognac-1,5g. Exit 1000g.
The cream is made the same way as Charlotte cream, only after adding the egg-milk syrup, sifted cocoa powder is gradually poured in. Here is such a chocolate cream (Ganache)
500 gr cream
500 grams of dark chocolate
50 grams of butter

Heat the cream to be hot, but do not boil !!!
Pour the chopped chocolate and butter and stir until the chocolate and butter are separated. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, but better at night.
Remove from the refrigerator, let stand 10 minutes and beat. All-cream is ready and they can be decorated. Chocolate (black) - 250 g Water - 200 ml
Cream - 300 ml
Butter - 80 g
Sugar (sand) - 80 g

First, using the molds cut out 6 petals. If the molds are not, you can make a piece of cardboard and cut with a knife.
Then we treat the edges in the petals so that they are wavy with the help of the back end of a brush or a toothpick, and put them to dry on the bottle so that they acquire a convex shape.
Then we make a pestle, thread it onto a toothpick (to make it easier to attach to the cake) and our dried petals are already attached to it. (First 3 upper petals are in the shape of a Mercedes badge, then 3 lower ones) dip in melted chocolate. But they must dry well, so they must be done in advance!
I left the collected lily to dry in a glass. I first lined it with foil and cellophane so that the lily took the desired shape!
