Tort Tanc / Tank cake

Nu, nu… nu ne pregatim de lupta… inca :)) Dar!! Am avut o misiune “aproape imposibila” de dus la capat. Spun aproape pt ca fratilor, mi-a iesit si de data asta. Stiu, sunt modesta, asta e. A fost de curand ziua de nastere a unui coleg de munca pasionat de industria militara cu tot ce cuprinde ea, de la avioane la soldati, de la tehnici militare la echipamente, de la jucarii si carti pana la … tancuri. Si ce-au zis colegii mei, te lauzi ca stii sa faci torturi smechere? Bine, ia sa faci un tanc de data asta. A fost o provocare dar mi-a placut la nebunie. M-am documentat cam o saptamana, am tras de limba “victima” sa imi spuna ce arome ii plac si gata am fost de atac. O sa va prezint mai jos in poze etapele principale.

Pt lupta avem nevoie de:

  • 2 blaturi, ca cele pufoase si minunate pe care le fac eu
  • 650 gr iaurt de fructe, de data asta am folosit cu arome de mango si caise
  • 800 ml frisca lichida
  • esente de rom si portocale
  • 5 portocale proaspete
  • 450 gr de martipan
  • 300 gr unt, pt icing
  • 500 gr de fondant, comandat de la profesionisti
  • colorant

Si incepem batalia luand in calcul cu cine ne luptam. Punem planul de atac pe masa de bucatarie, schitam niste idei si incepem cu… poze :))

Dupa ce ne dam seama cu cine avem de-a face, batem repede frisca la mixer. Apropo, am nevoie de unul nou si mai bun ca asta saracu deja face galagie, daca intelegeti problema; si dupa ce batem frisca amestecam intr-un vas mare cu iaurtul de fructe:

Dupa aceasta trecem la asamblare. De data aceasta blaturile au iesit mai pufoase pt ca am pus o idee mai putina faina si n-a mai fost nevoie de insiropare deci trecem peste acest stadiu. Punem primul blat, si asezam cu generozitate un strat serios de crema pufoasa peste care asezam cat mai multe fructe rupte bucatele

Repetam actiunea aceasta pana dam forma namilei si apoi o mangaiem frumos si delicat cu untul care a fost topit si racit in prealabil si batut cu mixerul, pt icing, pas obligatoriu:

Il lasam la odihna la rece, sa nu i se urce la cam maretia si pregatim martipanul. Din motive obiective eu am avut martipan galben pe care l-am combinat cu un colorant albastru si putin negru si a iesit un kaki frumos, ca cel folosit de trupele militare. L-am framantat bine, bine pana mi-a patruns in piele si apoi l-am pus pe o folie alimentara de plastic si l-am intins cu sucitorul:

Apoi cu marele chin de pe lume si o precizie tipic militareasca, pregatim si martipanul in culoare neagra si incepem decorarea:

Pt un look cat mai realist am pastrat martipan necolorat si am inceput sa ma joc cu el:

Dupa aceasta il mai aranjam putin cu alte detalii si gata la frigider.

Aici este deja livrat la destinatie, calitatea pozei nu este magnifica pt ca poza a fost facuta cu telefonul, insa pe pagina de Facebook promit sa pun si poze mai aratoase.

Si cu interiorul

Sa traiti!!

English version:

No, no … we are not preparing to fight … yet :)) But! I had a mission “almost impossible” to take to a good end. I say almost, cause brother, I went all the way and I made it this time too. I know, I am modest. Recently it was the birthday of a colleague from work, passionate about the military industry with  everything there is in it, from planes to soldiers and military technical equipment, from toys and books to … tanks. And so my colleagues said to me: ” you boast that you know to do super cakes? Okay, let’s have a tank this time, made by you”. It was a challenge but I loved it. I researched for about a week, I terrorized the “victim” to tell me what he likes as in flavors, fruits and there I was were ready for the battle. I will present to you below the main stages in pictures.

For the big fight we need:

2 sponges, like the fluffy and wonderful ones that I do
650 g fruit yogurt, this time I used mango and apricot flavors
800 ml whipped cream
rum and orange essences
5 fresh oranges
450 grams of marzipan
300 gr butter for icing
500 grams of fondant ordered from professionals
colors

And here it begins, the battle by taking into account who are we fighting with. We make a plan for the great attack on the kitchen table, sketch some ideas and we start with … pictures :))
Once we have realized who we are dealing with, we beat the cream in the blender quickly. By the way, I need a new and better one cause this one was a collateral victim, if you understand the problem, and after beating the cream we mix it into a large bowl with the fruit yogurt. After that starts the assembly. This time my fluffier countertops were great because I had an idea to a little bit less flour when baking them so they didn’t needed the sirup.

We first have to add a seriously generous layer of fluffy cream and  over it the fruits  broken into small pieces. Repeat this action until it will start to have the shape on a tank, then beautifully and delicately ice it with the butter that was melted and cooled in advance and also beaten with the mixer.
Leave it to rest and cool down and prepare the marzipan. Due to objective reasons I had yellow fondant which I combined with blue and a little black color dye and it turned into a handsome khaki, as the one used by military forces. The you ridden it well well and then put it on a plastic food wrap and I lay it with a rolling pin.
Then with great precision as the typical military precision, prepare and marzipan in black color and begin decorating. For more realistic look I kept some uncolored marzipan aside and started to play with it.
After this I fixed it with more details and ready in the fridge. The picture quality is not magnificent at all, for that picture was taken with the phone, but on Facebook I promise to put more pictures showing my cake at its best looking.

Eye eye captain !!
