For the batter

  • 200 g Margarine
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 4 piece Eggs
  • 400 g Flour
  • 2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 1 bag Grated orange peel
  • Pinch of salt
  • Food coloring

For the cream

  • 250 g Mascarpone
  • 200 ml Cream
  • 100 g Powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 160 ° C circulating air. Line a baking sheet or large square shape with parchment paper.
  • 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 large hearts with a heart cookie cutter. We cut out 3 hearts.
  • 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 the cream on the first heart and smooth it out. Put on the second heart and spread the cream on it, smooth it out, place the third heart on it. Now brush the hearts with the rest of the cream and decorate. Chill the cake for at least 1 hour.
