Preparation of the coconut cream

 

  • Melt organic white chocolate slowly - the chocolate shouldn't be too hot.
  • Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Finally also add the liquid chocolate and again mix well. Don't overmix it as the cream should still be liquid.

 

  • Cut off the top of the cake bases with a knife and cut both bases through the middle.
  • Then spread the cream on to the bases until a small high cake forms. Add little pineapple pieces for an even fruitier cake.
  • Let the cake cool for about 2 - 3 hours in your fridge.
  • The next step will be a cover with Swiss Meringue buttercream and a drip with dark ganache.

  • 200 g sugar
  • 250 g butter (room temperature)

 

Preparation:

  • Bring water in a small pot to boiling.
  • In a bowl mix egg whites and sugar. Put bowl on top of the pot with the boiling water - the bowl should not touch the water. Bring water to a point slightly under boiling - the steam should heat the egg whites indirectly. From time to time stir the egg whites.
  • Remove bowl from the pot when the sugar has dissolved. Now beat egg whites until stiff and keep beating until the bowl feels cold. The egg whites should get stiff and shiny.
  • Finally add butter in little portions and keep beating the batter until a shiny cream develops.
