Cooking the Snowman Cake:

Step 1: prepare the flour.

Cake cakes are made from shortcrust pastry. There are several types of it. For example: yeast shortbread dough, dough with different toppings, such as cottage cheese or baking powder. But we will prepare the most ordinary dough, without any special ingredients, and at the same time it will turn out to be very tasty. The basis of such a test mixture consists of flour and butter. And most importantly - the more oil in the dough, the more it turns out friable. And, of course, the quality of the flour is very important. Always take this component of the highest grade. Our ingredients are for cake, weighing approximately 1.5 kilograms. And this is enough to please the smallest sweet tooth, and leave a couple more pieces for adults. So let's get started! Sift flour through a sieve on a cutting board or a pre-prepared kitchen table. In this case, this must be done so that there are no lumps and any litter. Flour must breathe and be oxygenated.

Step 2: beat eggs with sugar.

After we have worked with the flour, put it aside and take on the following important ingredients. Pour sugar into a deep bowl and beat it with eggs using a mixer. If there is no such device at hand, you can use a hand whisk. True, it will be a little more complicated, since in time it will take about 15-25 minutes. This is necessary to ensure that our the ingredients turned into airy foam and, at the bottom did not come across grains of sugar. Believe me, it is worth your time and energy. Indeed, the more saturated the foam, the better our sand cakes will turn out.

Step 3: add the components of the dough to the egg-sugar foam.

Now you need to melt the butter. To do this, heat it in a small saucepan over low heat, constantly stirring with a spoon. Then it needs to be cooled. When the oil cools to room temperature, pour it into beaten eggs with sugar. Continuing to whip our mixture, add the same soda, vanilla sugar and salt. Beat for about 5-10 minutes, until smooth.

Step 4: make the dough soft and elastic.

Into the finished mixture add the sifted flour and knead it all. The dough, if you adhere to all these subtleties, is prepared simply and easily. It does not act up, and this is the main guarantee of the success of your baking! After kneading, make a ball from the dough and wrap it in cling film. The dough should be well saturated with oil, so leave it for 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Step 5: prepare the dough for baking in the oven.

The dough has already cooled, and now we can work with it. Be sure to sprinkle flour on the kitchen table. Due to this, it will not stick to the surface. But do not overdo it with flour, since an excessive amount will spoil not only the taste of the dough, but also change the consistency. And in the process of baking, flour will contribute to the combustion of the baking base. We divide our ingredient into two parts. Using a rolling pin, we roll out two circles along the diameter of the baking dishes that we will use.

Step 6: prepare the basis of the Snowman cake.

Preheat the oven to 190 - 220 ° C. We take two baking dishes and grease them with oil. In principle, it is not necessary to treat the containers with oil, as this component is already part of the dough and it is enough to prevent the shortbread cake from being burnt during baking. In any case, do not worry if you still decide to do this procedure. A small amount of extra oil or margarine will not prevent our product from acquiring a delicious rosy color. We lay out the test circles in turn in two forms. Before baking, using a pastry brush or just a teaspoon, grease our dough with egg white, or cold water, or milk. This will give our pastries a more beautiful color. The oven has already warmed up enough. Therefore, we quietly place the forms in the oven. The approximate cooking time is 30 to 40 minutes. If you are worried that your cakes will bake unevenly while at the same time in the oven, then it is better to do this gradually and alternately. Just in time it will be a little longer, but without consequences.

Step 7: Finely chop the finished cakes.

When the cakes are ready, let them cool slightly. We get the cooled cakes from the forms. Better to work with a detachable baking dish. Otherwise, just flip the form onto a cutting board. Cut the sand cakes with a knife into cubes about 4 by 4 cm in size. we get nice little squares. Carefully transfer them to the tray and move on to another process.

Step 8: prepare the cream.

Put sour cream and sugar in a deep bowl. With a hand whisk or mixer start whipping our products until air masses. The approximate time of whipping with a mixer is from 15 to 25 minutes, with a whisk it will take a little longer in time - from 20 to 30 minutes. If the sour cream is very acidic, then you can add a little more sugar. Well, there is already at your discretion. It's a matter of taste!

Step 9: create a snowman shape.

Take chopped slices of cake and each of them is completely dipped in cream. This is to ensure that the pieces are well saturated and not dry. You can dunk pieces of cake in several ways: the simplest is to dip them, holding them with your fingers; the second - dip a spoon with a sand cube into a bowl with cream and the third - put the finely chopped cakes in a deep container and pour the sour cream on them. And only after the pieces have been soaked well, put them on a tray in the shape of a snowman. Using a spoon, cover the surface of our snowman with the rest of the cream, evenly distributing the entire sour cream mass.

Step 10: serve the cake.

When the most difficult stage of cake preparation is finished, we begin to decorate and transform our "Snowman". Sprinkle our creation with coconut. Thus, it will turn out more fluffy and really snowy. After we make it bright and festive. We can decorate the “Snowman” in different ways: from the colored dragee to make the eyes and buttons of the jacket; from marmalade strips - a scarf; You can also add mastic decorations, and thanks to the carrot, cut out a tiny triangular piece for the nose. You can use everything that your fantasy tells you to decorate your “Snowman”. Of course, when the cake is ready, it is very difficult to resist the temptation. But better wait 3-5 hours. Then the cakes are finally saturated and become more juicy. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - If you want to please your youngest guests during the New Year holidays, you can make dough pieces and just put them in the refrigerator. Such a dough can be stored for 3 to 4 days in the cold and not deteriorate. Thus it will be possible to cook both two and five, and how much your soul desires the Snowman cakes.

- - I want to note that shortbread dough, in comparison with other types, remains fresh and crispy for a longer time. In this cake recipe, I tried to experiment and prepared different types of dough. But after a lot of different options, I came to the conclusion: that shortcrust pastry is the best option for the Snowman cake.

- - It is better to prepare a cream using real homemade sour cream. Thanks to the natural product, you will get a thicker saturated foam.

- - For the preparation of sour cream, you can use not sugar, but icing sugar. It has a small amount of starch. And starch by its properties contributes to the thickening of sour cream. Thus, the cream is more dense and saturated.

- - You can use different ingredients to decorate the Snowman cake, and these are waffle sticks or brooms, grated chocolate, nuts, whipped cream, chocolate chip cookies, canned fruits for a rich, full-bodied appearance.
