This layered cake has a delicious filling made from blended cheese, fruit rinds, juice, sugar and milk. The cake is covered with reserved cream to look yummy and decorated with rosettes, orange cherries and nuts. This is a must-try cake.
Serves :

Preparation Time :
50 minutes

Cooking Time :
30 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • Bake the sponge in a round 8" cake tin.
  • Cut the cake into three layers horizontally. Sprinkle each layer with liqueur. Put one layer aside, to use as a base.
  • Cut each of the other two layers as follows: a) Make a circular cut parallel to the outer edge of the layer and 1" inside it, so that you get a 1" wide ring with an 8" outer diameter. b) Make another circular cut 1" inside the remaining portion of the layer, so that you get a ring 6" in diameter and a circle 4" in diameter.
  • Filling: Blend the cheese, milk, sugar, fruit rinds and juice until smooth.
  • Dissolve the gelatin in 3 tbsp water over gentle heat and stir into the cheese mixture.
  • Whip the cream until stiff. Reserve two thirds and fold the rest into the cheese mixture.
  • Spread a very thin layer of the filling over the cake base.
  • Now place a 4" circle of cake in the center of the base, and an 8" ring to fit the outer edge. There will be a 2" gap between them. Fill this with the filling.
  • Place a 6" ring on top of the filling. Fill the hole in the middle and the space above the 8" ring with the filling, smoothing evenly.
  • Continue building similar layers of cake and filling, alternating the two layers described above. There will be four layers in all, plus the base.
  • Decoration: Cover the whole cake with the reserved cream. Pipe 16 rosettes along the top edge and decorate each rosette with a piece of orange and a cherry.
  • Sprinkle the nuts in the center of the cake. Coat the sides of the cake with the grated chocolate.
