Here is my Mint Cake recipe:
1 jar of natural yogurt
important: jar will be used to measure all the ingredients
4 jars of flour
1/2 jar of seed oil
1/2 jar of mint syrup
1 jar of coconut powder
1 packet of vanillin
1 packet of baking powder
For green icing
375g of icing sugar
green food coloring ( or yellow and blue to mix togheter to obtain green)
Preheat oven to 350 degree F (180 degree C).
In a large bowl beat 3 eggs until they are smooth and fluffy.
Add 1 jar of natural yogurt and mix
Add 4 jars of flour and mix
Add 1/2 jar of mint syrup and mix togheter
Now the mixture have a beautiful green color!
Add 1/2 jar of seed oil
Add 1 jar of coconut powder and mix
Pour mixture into a round greased cake pan ( I used a 10"round cake pan). Bake at 350 degrees F(180 degree C) for 40-45 minutes or until done.
Let the cake cool.
Meanwhile you can prepare the icing to cover the cake:
icing should not be too liquid.
When the cake is cold you can cover it with icing.
Cake is ready but if you want you can decorate it, with candies, marshmallow, chocolate...Use your creativity!
You can also create a cute creature to decorate your cake, or flowers, hearts, pois... I thought to decorate my cake with a cute green dragon made with almond paste, a typical sicilian recipe, but also fondant is perfect to use, here is a recipe to make fondant:
Almond paste is made of almonds, sugar and water
I modeled the dragon body, his head, his paws, his ears and his tail...
I added some details
And here is the finished dragon!
To make brown paste I added some chocolate powder.
