Cake for special occasions. To prepare it, you need first of all a refrigerator. I was preparing it for my brother's wedding anniversary. The original sweet crunchy base and light curd-wine filling with grapes will not leave anyone indifferent.
Prepare products for the base.
Split form (26cm) cover the bottom and walls with parchment paper.
Cut the almonds into thin slices.
Fry the almond plates in a dry pan.
Grind the almonds in a coffee grinder.
Mash the cornflakes a little with a pusher.
Mix the almond crumbs and cornflakes well.
In a metal bowl over a low heat, heat the sugar to a caramelized state.
Add the cream and butter and bring to a boil (stirring constantly). Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, then stir in the almond and cornflake mixture. Stir quickly and thoroughly.
Pour the prepared mass into a split mold. Carefully distribute on the bottom and on the walls of the form so that you get something like a "vase".
Put the form in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. PS. I first distributed the mixture with a spoon, and then still with my hands.
In the meantime, start preparing the filling.
To prepare the products.
Soak the leaf gelatin according to the instructions.
Mix the cottage cheese, champagne, lemon juice and sugar well.
Add the dissolved gelatin.
Beat the cream into a strong foam.
As soon as the mass with gelatin turns into jelly, put it in the form.
Add the cream on top and then put the halves of the grapes.
Put in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Decorate the cake to your liking. You can also use fresh flowers if they are grown on your own plot without the use of chemicals.
