How amazing is that?!
Well, here is my version:
I decided to make a Swedish cardamom cake that is really good with coffee.
Fika (Swedish cardamom cake)
Mix 1 1/4 cups of flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 2 tbsp ground cardamom. In another bowl beat 2 eggs with 3/4 cup sugar until they are fluffy. In a pan melt 4 tbsp butter and then add 1/2 cup milk, bring it to a simmer, remove from heat and stir that into the egg mixture. Then fold in the flour mix and put in the oven at 180 C for 30-40 mins until the top is golden or until the cake peeling away from the edge of the pan.
I separated out the batter into parts and dyed it different colours, then I layered it in the tin
Then I put it in the oven for 35 mins and it turned out like this
Once it was cool, I divided up the buttercream and dyed that different colours too, then it was time to get my paintbrush out
I was a little nervous about the icing getting warm and spreading on the train but there was only a bit of spread in the stripes. Next thing was the surprise inside
Ta daaaaa! After all that, it's time for coffee and cake, I think...
