Ferrero Rocher Cream Tart Number Cake

Ferrero Rocher Cream Tart Number Cake

After dozens of requests – I finally had to give in to the trend and made a cream tart cake; also known as number cake. I must admit that this cake is not really my cup of tea – something about the layers and the exaggeration of the creams and candies at the top feels very monstrous, not elegant and not really my style in baking. However, as I got so many requests for my version of this cake I simply couldn’t resist and had to make it at least once.

This is how the next Ferrero Rocher number cake was thought of – it’s made of three layers of buttery hazelnut cookie filled with two different kinds of mascarpone cream – chocolate and praline mascarpone cream and vanilla mascarpone cream. At the top I added chocolates, Ferrero Rocher candy and crushed cocoa nibs. To make it even more impressive – I also sprinkled some edible gold dust that made it shine.

The result was a beautiful cream tart number cake with a delicious flavors combination. It really is quite easy to make, and I recommend making it one day prior to serving, in order for the cookie crust will soften a bit and the cake would be a lot easier to cut into pieces. This cake is kept well in it for up to 3 days total. The decorations should be added before serving for a particularly fresh appearance. Fell free to decorate with any candy you like.

Instructions

Hazelnut Cookies Dough:

  1. In a food processor with a steel blade, put flour, hazelnuts, powdered sugar, butter, salt and vanilla and process into a crumbly mixture.
  2. Add egg and blend until large chunks of dough are obtained.
  3. Form the dough into a disc shape and wrap in plastic wrap.
  4. Cool for about an hour in the refrigerator.
  5. Divide the dough into 3 pieces.
  6. Roll out each part of the dough about 4-5 mm thick and cut out a 20 cm circle. In the center of the circle cut another circle of 10 cm in diameter. Place the cookie on a baking pan lined with baking paper.
  7. Repeat with the remaining two pieces of dough.
  8. Preheat oven to 170 Celsius degrees.
  9. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes or until they are completely golden.
  10. Cool at room temperature and freeze for about an hour before the cake is assembled.

Vanilla Mascarpone Cream:

  1. In a mixer with a whipping attachment put cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and instant pudding and whip on medium speed until you get a uniform mixture.
  2. Increase the speed of the mixer and add the whipping cream in a thin stream while whipping. Continue to whip until you get a very stable cream.
  3. Transfer the cream to a piping bag fitted with a smooth 2 cm piping tip.

Chocolate Praline Mascarpone Cream:

  1. In a mixer with a whipping attachment put cheese, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, praline paste, coffee and instant pudding and whip on medium speed until you get a uniform mixture.
  2. Increase the speed of the mixer and add the whipping cream in a thin stream while whipping. Continue to whip until you get a very stable cream.
  3. Transfer the cream to a piping bag fitted with a serrated 2 cm piping tip.

Assemble the Cake:

  1. Place the first layer of cookie on top of a serving dish.
  2. Drizzle mounds of vanilla mascarpone cream on the inside and outside of the base (to be seen in layers) and chocolate mascarpone cream in the part between them (this will be a surprise revealed after cutting).
  3. Place over another cookie and repeat the drizzling the creams the same way.
  4. Place the third cookie base over and drizzle the remaining of the creams freely.
  5. Decorate with halved Ferrero Rocher candy, cocoa beans, chocolate chips and edible gold dust.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the cake in a closed container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • It is recommended to prepare the cake a day before serving and keep in the refrigerator, so it is convenient to cut it.
  • You can diversify and decorate with any type of candy you like.
  • Instead of praline paste, you can use the same amount of Nutella.
  • I used this edible gold dust (affiliate).
