Sunny's Tropical Cake

Tropical Cake
by Sunny

Now i must admit this cake looks really good.
It's a true eye catcher among the cake world and its not that hard to make.

Please follow the recipe carefully to get this right at once.


  • 200 grams of sugar
  • 3 eggs in 2 seperate bowls, 1 bowl with only the egg yellows and 1 with only the egg whites
  • 200 grams of flower
  • 1 spoon of baking powder
  • 3 apples grated (grated means cut up to a mosh)
  • 1 spoon of vanilla powder
  • 1 spoon of rum
  • 300 grams of pastry cream (liquid)
  • 4 kiwi's cut in slices
  • 6-8 strawberries cut in slices
  • 100 grams of cocos (the one you see on the side of the cake)
  • red/pink food color decoration

First take a bowl and put there the flowe and the baking soda and mix it good by hand.
Take a second bowl where you put the egg yellows and mix them with the sugar.
Now mix the two mixtures together with a kitchen mixer.

Keep mixing while slowly adding the apple grates, the vanilla and the spoon of rum into the mixture. Mix this for atleast 2 minutes then add the egg whites and continue mixing for another minute at slow speed.

Take a cake form (pref round) and lay some baking paper on it. Poor the mixture into the cake form and put it in the pre-heated oven (175 degrees celcius) for about 20-30 minutes, keep an eye on it you will notice when its ready. Poking it with a wooden stick can also help doing the trick.

Take the cake out and leave it for another 15 minutes to cool. Then cut the cake horizontally into 2 layers.

Take the pastry cream and mix it with the mixer on high speed, adding a bit of sugar to it (like 1 spoon) wouldnt hurt.

Now take the upper layer off and smear the lower layer with cream, place some kiwi slices on it then place the second layer ontop again.

Smear all the cake with cream. Use the foodpaint all over the cake (if you couldnt find any its not a problem). Now take the cocos and cover the whole cake with it.
Use your imagination and decorate the whole top of the cake with fruits.

Let the cake rest for another 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy your cake!
