The combination of shortbread dough, meringue, nuts and butter cream with sweetened condensed milk. My friend Oksana made this cake and I decorated for my mom.
300 grams (2.5 sticks) softened butter
3 tbs of sour cream
1 tsp baking soda with 1 tbs vinegar
2+ cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
4 egg whites
1 cups sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 sticks unsalted butter
16 oz cool whip
8 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup walnuts
1 can pie Cherries, dried plums
Whisk egg whites and sugar into meringue. Start on slow and add speed gradually. Mix about 15-20 min. Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix butter with flour and vanilla.
In the separate bowl whisk together sour cream, baking soda with vinegar and egg yolks.
Mix it in the dough. Add more flour to make it not sticky.
Roll the dough in the ball. Davide into 6 parts. Roll on floured foil piece.
To make cream: Whip softened butter until white color add cream cheese then cool whip and sweetened condensed milk.
To make it easier spreading the cream turn the meringue down and spread the cream on the dough side. Add cherries and small pieces of plums to each layer of the cake. You can cover the cake with chocolate. Keep it fridge or freeze it.
Love you mom!!!
