Puck cake

My favourite sport is ice hockey so I thought that a puck-shaped cake would be great and not too much hard or long to make. I also added a NHL team’s logo on the top (it’s a cookie), the covering is made with fondat and inside there are chocolate M&M’s with Nutella, but you can replace it with whipped cream or whatever you like!

For the cake you will need:

  • 150 g flour 00
  • 100 g wheat starch or potato flour (if you don’t have it, flour 00 is ok too)
  • 200 g white sugar
  • 80 g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 sachet vanillin (usually 3 g)
  • 1 sachet baking powder (usually 16 g)
  • 120 ml milk
  • powdered sugar to taste
  • 1 sachet chocolate M&M’s
  • 1 glass Nutella or 1 pack whipped cream (usually 125 ml)

For the covering:

  • 2 blocks black fondant
  • 1/2 block white fondant

For the cookie:

  • 60 g cold salted butter cut into pieces
  • 55 g packed light brown sugar
  • 155 g all purpose flour
  • chocolate and colored glaze for decoating

Method:

  1. Melt the butter and separate egg whites from the yolk
  2. Beat egg whites till stiff (if you tilt the bowl, they shouldn’t slip)
  3. Mix sugar and egg yolks
  4. In another bowl, mix flour; wheat starch; baking powder
  5. Sift dry ingredients into sugar and egg yolks mix and stir
  6. Add milk; melted butter and vanillin
  7. Add beated egg whites and fold them into batter
  8. Bake it for 40 minutes at 160° C
  9. Let cool
  10. Cut the cake horizontally and add Nutella and M&M’s
  11. Stretch black fondant (use powdered sugar to don’t let it stick to any surface), cover the cake (spread some water and sugar on the fondant surface that is going to lay on the cake) and cut the excess
  12. Stretch white fondant and put a bowl upside down on it (you can choose the size) to get a circle cutting the excess and stick it to black fondant with water and sugar

To make the cookie you can choose any shape, I printed an image of the team logo, I put it on the cookie dough and cut the excess.

  1. Mix brown sugar and butter together
  2. Add 125 g of flour and mix
  3. Add the remaining part of flour until the dough is not sticky (You may not use all the flour)
  4. Make a ball with the dough; wrap it tight in a plastic sheet and let it chill for 30 minutes
  5. Shape your cookie and bake it until the edges are golden brown (baking time will vary depending on the batter and the size of your cookie but it should take about 10 minutes) at 160°C
  6. Let cool
  7. Decoare your cookie with colored glaze or chocolate
  8. Stick the cookie to the white fondant with water and sugar
