Let's get to work

  1. Preheat the oven to 160° C.
  2. Make the cakes. Beat the eggs with the sugar untill fluffy. Then fold in the flour, salt and vanilla sugar. Add some red colour dye, drop by drop, until the dough turns pink.
  3. Grease 3 cake tins and divide the dough equally among the 3 cake tins. Bake the three cakes in the oven for about 20 minutes and let the cakes cool down well.
  4. Whip the cream until it has a yoghurt-like consistency.
  5. Beat the monchou separately with milk, icing sugar and the juice of the lime and a few drops of red food dye.
  6. Fold the whipped cream through the monchou until it becomes smooth and firm.
  7. Cut one red/red pitahaya in half lengthwise and puree half of the flesh of the
  8. red /red pitahaya. Add to the filling and stir well.
  9. Spread the filling on the bottom layer. Place the second cake layer on top. Also spread the filling on this layer and then place the last cake layer on top. Cover the top layer of the cake with some of the filling. This is best done with a piping bag.
  10. Spoon the flesh out of the pitahaya. Cut figures with different shapes from the pitahaya flesh.
  11. Decorate the cake with pitahaya, pink mini merengue and sprigs of rosemary.
