A how to for a delicious pie!
I did not use anything from books nor the internet for this recipe. The only thing I did not make myself was the cake mix.
How to on (chocolate) butter cream:
How to on marzipan:
Put some powdered sugar on the place you're gonna roll out your marzipan. Roll the roller through the powdered sugar so it won't get stuck and roll it all out! Add some orange (Both the taste and colour) flavouring. Put it in the middle, fold it like an envelope and knead it. You might want to do this a few times. When it tastes good and the colour is equal (on my pie it wasnt all equal though :p) you can stop it.
*yay for orange fingers*
Be carefull with lifting it up and putting it on your pie. It can cut easily. My marzipan wasn't enough, it is really thin on this pie, and as you can see the base isn't covered. Cut off the remaining bits on the bottom, and clean the plate :P Get bubbles out with a little needle, cuts with some water, and "dirty" spots with some powdered sugar.
And this is your final result! As you can see, there's a brown spot on the pie, I accidentally spilled some chocolate. I tried getting it off with some water and the rest with powdered sugar, unfortunately it was too much to get away.
Do NOT put this cake in the fridge.
The chocolate on the marzipan will get hard, the marzipan will cut, the cake will dry out and the buttercream will also get hard. Not tasting very well. :p
*sorry for the sloppy marzipan work ;D*
