Why This one

a few words from me

I bought a raspberries on special offer :) And since raspberries spoil quite quickly, I had to use them as soon as possible. I was thinking about Birthday cake for my son and came up with idea ... I wasn't sure if I would get the desired effect, but if you don't try it, you won't find out, right? :) It turned out that there was nothing to fear - the cake turned out exactly as I imagined it. And it's delicious! It may look complicated, but if you make it, you will surely confirm that it is one of the simplest cakes you have ever made.



8 eggs

120 g of almonds (ground) or almond flour

120 g of potato starch

105 g of caster sugar, sugar or any preferred sweetener


2 mascarpone cheese

2 ricotta cheese

100 ml coconut cream

3 packets sugar-free jelly powder (raspberry flavour)

THE how to make

4. Beat the yolks with sugar or sweetener until light, fluffy. Add ground almonds, red food colouring and sift into potato starch.Mix gently.

5. Beat egg whites into the stiff foam - just like a cloud. Do not overbeat the whites, because hard, very stiff foam is also not the best.

6. Combine it gently with a wooden spoon with the yolk mass with movements up and down.

7. Divide the dough into 3 baking trays, put it in the oven and bake them for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting :

3.When jelly start to settle pour into cheeses mix and mix it together until all will combine into smooth pink mass.
