This sunday, both of our gamins will celebrate their first communion.
Since we went on a 1 year-trip (here), Maxime did not get the chance to do it last year so both gamins are celebrating it together this year, almost like twins ;-)
I chose to keep their party pure and simple, all in white.
When looking for 'matching' white food, I searched for a white cake.
In the new volume of 'Wonen landelijke stijl', I found what I was looking for.
And so I made a trial on this white cake a few days in advance and it is really overly delicious....
and gorgeous at the same time.
And it's even supereasy to make!
This is what I did:
250gr Speculaas (a flemish sort of ginger cookies)
250gr creamy butter
450gr White chocolate
Smash the speculaas into small pieces. I put all the speculaas in a clean towel and hit on it with a rollingpin. Put it on the bottom of your caketin.
Melt the creamy butter and pour it over the speculaas. Press it with a wooden spoon, so that it's a flat surface. Put this in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Melt the white chocolate. Whip the cream and mascarpone. Add the seeds of the vanillapod and gently mix the chocolate and the whipped cream.
Add this to the speculaas-bottom and put it in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Add some flowers and enjoy ;-)
