Bake for 40-45 minutes. Leave the cakes in the baking molds for about 1 hour. In addition, the cakes can be completely cooled down on the wire mesh. In this time you start with the vanilla glaze.

  • 3 cups of fine sugar or powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk

How is it done:

Beat the butter with the medium-level blender for approximately 2 minutes until it becomes frothy. Turn to low level and remove the sugar by adding half a cup to the next and stirring well after each time. Then add the vanilla and beat the glaze mixture at the highest level for about 3 minutes. It must be airy and almost colorless. If the glaze has become too thick, add the milk.

For the artificial blood sauce:

  • 1 tablespoons of food
  • 1 teaspoon red food color
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup
