Day 160: Swedish Princess Cake

This Swedish princess cake is made out of dreams. It's silky, chewy and so good. Plus it's very attractive with its dome covered with green marzipan.

A Swedish princess cake is a layered cake filled with sponge cake, pastry cream, raspberry jam, whipped cream, green marzipan and a beautiful fondant rose on top.

The fondant rose is very important for this cake. I made it using homemade fondant which is incredibly easy to make. It's made with marshmallows, powdered sugar, and water if needed.

Lots of recipes don't have much of a dome because they don't put much whipped cream on the top. I saved most of my whipped cream for the top. For the sides you just want to lightly crumb coat everything. This way you have leftovers for your dome.

I hope you enjoy making this cake. It's so fun, and it's actually a lot easier than it looks. It takes a lot of time, but the efforts are well deserved. The cake tastes fantastic!
