Choose the perfect crust
There are endless variations that can be made out of the general number cake but the best results come out after using cookie dough.Combine your dry ingredients in a Moulinex Masterchef 9000 and pulse until combined. Add wet ingredients and blend until a dough is formed.
Chill and cut shape
When your dough is ready, divide it into 2 balls and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. In the meantime, print out your number shape and cut it out. Remove the balls from the fridge and spread on parchment paper with a rolling pin until you reach the desired thickness. Place the number on the dough and cut out the edges. Remove the edges delicately then freeze the number shaped dough for 10 minutes. Take out and bake until golden brown depending on the recipe.
Fill and decorate
When it comes to filling your number cake, you can choose your favorite cream such as buttercream, a cream cheese based cream or pastry cream and prepare it in your kitchen machine. Just fill your piping bag with the cream and start by piping small dollops on the first number-shaped crust. Delicately add the second crust on top of the filling, and pipe the rest of your cream in small dollops on top. Decorate with fruits, meringues, Chantilly cream or edible flowers.
