Chipolata marzipan cake recipe

Chipolata marzipan cake recipe use to be one of the first marzipan cakes in Europe. Now a days, there are so many marzipan cakes and they come in all kinds of colors! Chipolata is a mix of Amaretini cookies, candied cherries and other candied fruits. This combination is one of the fillings for bavarian cream. Chipolata bavarian cream is an European dessert and comes in many flavors. This recipe will come later on our website! You can use Chipolata bavarian cream as well for cake filling and pastries. For this cake, I am only using bavarian cream for the bottom part of the cake. The second layer will be Maraschino cherry butter cream. This cake is a 3 phase cake. Which means: bake cake first, make bavarian cream and decorate your cake!

Chipolata cake batter

For this cake I am seperating the egg yolks and whites. The process is to beat the egg whites with a 50% of the sugar until it is foamy! Then I am beating egg yolks with the other part of sugar and vanilla extract until this is creamy! Now I can combining the creamy egg yolks and foamy egg whites with a spatula together! The last part is to sift extra fine flour with custard powder and blend with the eggs. For this I am not using a mixer. only my spatula! My cake batter is ready for the oven. As you can see I am using a square springform cake pan. When you have a round springform cake pan, that will be fine as well. Chipolata cake is ready in 30 minutes on 350 fahrenheit/ 180 celsius.

Chipolata Bavarian cream filling

For our catering service, we are using chipolata bavarian cream as a dessert and our desserts come in cups. I am using the same recipe for cake filling. When my cake is on room temperature, I am cutting this in 3 parts. The bottom part of this cake has chipolata bavarian cream. The second part I am using Maraschino cherry buttercream. I close this cake with the top part and cover this with pink marzipan

Cake decorating

The finishing touch for Chipolata Marzipan cake recipe is cake decorating. For this I am using Plain marzipan and organic pink food color. There is marzipan with color on the market only I am never using these blocks. We make our own marzipan with almond and confectioner sugar. There is a huge difference in processed marzipan or making fresh marzipan. I do understand this all together will be alot of work, but if you decide to buy marzipan, make sure it is good quality. Besides marzipan, this cake have whipped cream dots with raspberries and Amarena cherries on top. You can use other cherries as well for this recipe.
