My lil’ sis turned 25 yesterday, and that was reason enough to try out this famous British delight. After giving it a go, I understand what the hoopla is all about. This cake will even make the “I’m not much a cake person” person go for seconds. It’s really easy to make and it has a vintage look to it. Here is the instructional video (if you want to be inspired, too!): How to make Battenberg Cake.
1. Add a little food coloring to make it look like a rose. Don’t add too much coloring or the dough will become overly sticky.
2. Roll up a little ball and then make it pointy like an upside-down cone.
3. Make another seven to eight balls.
4. Using your roller, make thin, flat circles, roughly 2 inches in diameter on wax paper.
3.The first flat circle you’ll shape around your cone. Create layers with the remaining leaves making sure they fold outward.
Always with love,
