Step by step how to cook The Number Cake/Tart Cake:
- Get all your ingredients ready.
- Making The Sugar Cookie Dough Beat your butter and sugar till creamy and airy. Add in vanilla essence and egg and beat for a few more seconds. Add in your salt and baking powder. Use a spatula or hand/stand mixer with dough attachments for this. You can use your hands too once you start adding the flour. Do so in bits till a smooth dough forms. Add some milk if the dough feels a bit hard. Good news, no need to refrigerate dough, thanks to the cold butter..
- Cutting the desired shape I had a number two template(downloaded and printed from Pintrest). Place it on a rolled out dough and trace out the figure. Do so on a floured wax/grease paper..
- Make two of them (or depending on how many you need) and place on a baking sheet(with the wax paper on). Put it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for about 5-8 minutes. Do not over-bake it or it will become too hard. Remove it and let it cool before decorating it.
- Decorating your cake Whip your cream till stiff peaks form. Prepare your buttercream if you prefer that. Get your cookie ready. Pour your buttercream/whipping cream into a piping bag. You can use the nozzle with a circle tip or cut the tip of your reusable piping bag(It gives a dollop-kind of presentation). Start by decorating one of the cookie layers. Gently place the second layer and do the same..
- Disclaimer: I used the star-tip for the second layer of cookie. You can now decorate your cake as you please. Fruits, chocolate, chocolate shavings, oreos, and flowers are some of the options. Get creative.
- Another option.
- And cutting the cake is no messy affair… Tip: Do not over-bake it.
