I continue to learn the desserts, which were popular in the USSR. Today will discuss the cakes: Gift, Leningrad and Fantasy.
Every week I talk about popular and unpopular desserts, which were produced in the USSR. Basic information on the cakes, I have taken out of the book in 1976, "Manufacture of pastries and cakes," the authors: AP FROM. Markhel, Y. L. Gopenshteyn and S. IN. Boldly.
Sponge cake, which consisted of three layers. Cake abundantly wetted with syrup, which was added to cognac. Interlayer dessert ordinary butter cream. Outside cake coated with the same cream and sprinkled with nuts.
The book does not indicate which nuts have been used, but I remember this cake, sprinkled with roasted peanuts. His best prepare my godmother. Neither family event did not take place without the "Gift cake" from her. Stunning cake that is easy to prepare even at home.
Sand cake, which consisted of 5 square cakes. Sandwiches butter cream cake, the same as for the "Gift of cake." On top of the product covered with chocolate fudge, and the edges are sprinkled with biscuit crumbs. Along the edges of stacked biscuit cakes "bush" and decorated with cream.
This cake has reached our days, and I often see it in a different version on store shelves. But there is no desire to buy. As a child, this cake is rarely appeared on the table in our family, so anything I can not tell about it.
Sponge cake, which consisted of three square-shaped cakes. Cake sandwiches butter cream with the addition of nut praline. Laid top meringue small size and sprinkled with powdered sugar, and the side portions coated biscuit crumbs.
This cake I've never tried, but was told about it a lot in the comments on the last article. Cake in composition I really like, especially the fact that he did separate the cream with praline. I want to try most of the current collection of this cake.
