For a family members birthday last weekend, I wanted to prepare a peach based cake.  I didn't want to make a traditional cake, however, but something with color and a wow-effect.  So that is how this cake came about.  The cake consists of 3 layers of vanilla cake, separated by delicious peach creams and covered in a peach buttercream.

For decoration, I used: macarons that I had prepared before, flowers, gold food coloring, a birthday cake topper, and buttercream in the color of peach.

Here are the ingredients to the cake.  Below I show you how I prepared the cake (via video).  However, the video is in German.  But we all speak the same language of cake, so I think you'll be able to follow along.

  • 220g milk
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • 230g of butter (at room temperature)
