  • Step 1 - Number cake
    Pie crust :
    Put softened butter+ icing sugar + salt + almond meal into the bowl and mix. Then add egg and beat together until combined.
  • Step 2 - Number cake
    Now, add the flour and use your hands to mix until the dough become uniform. Do not over-knead! Now, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Step 3 - Number cake
    Remove dough from refrigerator, remove the plastic and divide batter into 2 pieces. Take one and place it on a baking sheet.
  • Step 4 - Number cake
    Draw or print in a A4 sheet the shape of your numbers, cut it and place it onto the rolled dough. Then, use a knife to trim the number shape but don't remove leftover dough just slash it. Do it 2 times and repeat with the second number.
  • Step 5 - Number cake
    Right away, store in the fridge for up to 30 min before removing the leftover (this will make it more workable).
  • Step 6 - Number cake
    Bake at 180°C (350°F) for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • Step 7 - Number cake
    Mascarpone cream :
    Scrape the seeds out of the vanilla bean using the knife blade. In a large and cold bowl, whisk together: mascarpone cheese + cold heavy whipping cream + vanilla seeds + icing sugar. Beat whipping cream at maximum speed.
  • Step 8 - Number cake
    Transfer the 1st number crust onto a serving dish/plate and pipe the whipped cream. Pipe and pull, covering the entire surface of the crust. Place the second layer of crust over it and apply another layer of whipped cream all over the crust.
  • Step 9 - Number cake
    Repeat with the other number. Don't worry if it breaks, nobody will notice ;-)
  • Step 10 - Number cake
    Wash your fruits and put them on the cream. Add little meringues.
  • Step 11 - Number cake
    Spread your almond paste and use a cookie cutter to cut the shapes you want. Put them on top of the number cake.
