  • Wash branches, wash apples, remove apple stem and push the cleaned branch in it’s place about 0.78 -1.13 inch deep
  • For the chocolate covered apples melt chocolate in a chocolate melter
  • Transfer to a small and higher bucket to dip the apples more easily
  • Decorate as desired and let them dry on a baking paper
  • For the candied apples boil sugar, water, raspberry syrup, butter and vinegar until 285 F are reached. Do not stir.
  • This should take about 10-15 minutes, so you don’t need to keep the thermometer from the beginning on in the pot
  • Once the mass has reached the right temperature,take off the heat and stir in the red food coloring
  • Dip apples and allow to dry on a baking paper

Apple Marzipan Tarte with Almond Cream by bakerangel.com

Preheat oven to 335 F

  • To make the dough mix all ingredients into a crumbly dough, knead it, shape into a dough ball and let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface (which is not as easy with that kind of dough), put it in a 9nch Tarte pan and let it chill, during that time you prepare the almond cream
  • For the almond cream mix butter and sugar until fluffy and stir in the egg and egg white
  • Add vanilla, flour and ground almonds
  • Mix well and put in the fridge
  • Peel apples, quarter them, remove seeds and cut into thin slices, sprinkle some lemon juice on the apple slices to protect them to get brown spots
  • Take out the tart and almond cream from the fridge and spread the almond cream on top and smooth it out
  • Rasp some marzipan on top or cut into small pieces and spread on the almond cream
  • Place the apples on top and try to shape like a rose and bake for about 30 minutes
  • Heat apricot jam a bit, that way it will be a little bit more liquid and easier to process and apply the jam to the still warm tarte
  • Let it cool completely and sprinkle some cinnamon on top

Chocolate Nutella Birthday Cake by bakerangel.comChocolate Nutella Birthday Cake by bakerangel.com

Preheat oven to 350 F

  • Cream butter with sugar and brown sugar until smooth, add vanilla
  • Stir in one egg at a time
  • Combine flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir in alternately with the buttermilk into the mixture
  • I divided the mass into three portions, one part is felt without any cocoa, the other two were added with cocoa, I tried to make one part darker than the other by using slightly more cocoa. But you can also make three identical cakes – tastes equally good:-)
  • Stir in chocolate chips into the two chocolate dough
  • Grease three pans ∅ 8 inch and fill each with one of the three dough portions, bake for 20-25 minutes, toothpick test
  • Let the cakes cool down completely on a wire rack!
  • To make the Nutella frosting melt the dark chocolate
  • Heat the Nutella a bit, that way it will be a little bit more liquid and easier to process
  • With an electric mixer cream the butter well with the powdered sugar, stir in sour cream, melted chocolate and Nutella, set for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator
  • To make the buttercream beat the butter with the powdered sugar until smooth and let it chill for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator
  • Place the first cake layer on a round cardboard cake board (the cake board should be sized to the same dimensions as the cake)
  • Spread Nutella Frosting on top and smooth it out, don’t spread the filing to the edge so that the second cake layer does not push out the Frosting
  • Place the second layer gently on top and spread again Nutella Frosting on top and then add the third cake layer on top
  • On a silicone mat spread the sprinkles, create a lane as long as the cake needs to roll over once (see pictures below)
  • Spread the buttercream around the cake, leave out the top of the cake
  • Place one hand under the cake board and on hand on top of the cake, turn the cake horizontal an roll over the sprinkle lane. The majority of the cake side should now be covered with sprinkles, small repair work can be done later by hand
  • Carefully coat the cover with butter cream and scatter the sprinkles by hand, press them down gently with a palette
