Orange Confetti Layer Cake Baking Kit - English Recipe

Recipe: Orange Cream Cake

Ingredients (included):

  • Flour Mix
  • Sugar Mix
  • Sprinkle Mix
  • Topping Mix
  • 1 orange
  • Sprinkles for decorating

Ingredients (not included):

  • 125g / ½ c butter – softened to room temperature for the cake
  • 125g / ½ c butter – softened to room temperature for the frosting
  • 2 eggs
  • 160ml / 2/3c milk + more to soften the icing if needed (see step 10.3)

Baking Tools (not included):

  • Hand- or stand-mixer
  • 2x 22-28cm springform cake pans
  • Grater & citrus press
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Spatula
  • Sieve
  • Plate & knife

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C / 350°F & grease both of the springform pans
  2. Start by preparing the orange zest & juice. Wash the orange & grate the whole rind. Pro-tip: continuously rotate the orange & stop grating as soon as you see white. The white part of the rind is very bitter!
  3. After grating the orange, cut it in half & juice both halves. Set aside the orange zest & juice until you need it
  4. Using a hand- or stand-mixer, beat the Sugar Mix & 125g of butter together until it is fully combined & fluffy
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add half of the orange zest & 2 tsp of orange juice when you add the second egg
  6. Once the eggs, juice, & zest are fully mixed in, add the Flour Mix & milk alternately (Flour Mix, milk, repeat) & mix until the batter is homogenous & smooth
  7. Lastly, pour the Sprinkle Mix into the cake batter & using a spatula, gently stir in the sprinkles until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter
  8. Evenly distribute the cake batter between your 2 prepared springform cake pans & bake for 20-22 minutes! Pro-tip: Insert a toothpick or skewer into the center of the cake to check whether it is done. If there is wet batter stuck to the cake, bake it for a little longer!
  9. When the cakes are done, let them cool on a cooling rack. Pro-tip: run a thin knife along the edge of the cake to loosen it from the springform pan, making it easier to remove later!
  10. To make the frosting:
    1. Beat 125g of butter on high speed for ~5 minutes, until very fluffy. Pro tip: take the butter out of the fridge 2-3 hours before you plan to use it to ensure it is softened!
    2. Sift the Topping Mix into a bowl & add it to the butter in 3 batches. Add the leftover orange zest & 1-2 tsp of orange juice after mixing in the first 2 topping mix batches.  Beat butter on high for 2-3 minutes after each addition
    3. If the frosting is too stiff, add 1-2 EL milk to soften it (optional step)
  11. To assemble the layer cake:
    1. Once the cakes are fully cooled, gently remove them from the springform pans & place one cake on a plate. Using a knife, spread a thin layer of frosting on top of the cake on the plate & carefully layer the second cake on top of the bottom cake
    2. Finish by spreading the rest of the frosting over the top & sides of the cake & decorating with sprinkles!

Storage notes: the cakes can be made & frozen up to 1 month ahead of time. The frosting can be made up to 3 days ahead of time & stored in the fridge. Take it out 1-2 hours before using to allow it to soften. Once the cake is frosted, enjoy it immediately & store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days.

 

Happy Baking!
