For the dough

  • 200 g Margarine
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 4 piece Eggs
  • 400 g Sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 1 bag Orange zest

For the cream

  • 500 g Mascarpone
  • 400 ml Cream
  • 200 g Sifted powdered sugar
  • Food coloring


  • Preheat the oven to 160 ° C circulating air. A baking sheet or any other square shape you want. For the batter, first beat the soft margarine with the sugar until frothy. Then add the eggs one at a time and stir well each time. Mix the flour with baking powder and salt. Stir into the foam mixture alternately with the milk and the grated orange peel. If you like, you can color the dough with food coloring. Spread the dough on the baking sheet, smooth it out and bake for about 20 minutes. Remove the cake platter from the baking paper and allow to cool.
  • Now cut out 3 circles or any other shape with a cutter. Beat the mascarpone with the hand mixer at medium speed for 1 minute. Sift and add powdered sugar and briefly beat in. Add cold liquid cream and continue beating. Do not panic, at first the mass looks very fluid, it is completely normal. Just keep beating and the mixture becomes more and more firm and after a few minutes our cream is ready.
  • Put some cream on the first floor and smooth it out. Lay on the second floor and spread the cream on it, smooth it out, put the third floor on top. Now everything is coated with the cream and decorated. Chill the cake for at least 1 hour.
