Rose cake

Sefiiritort / Rose cake
Made this rose cake - my first ever - for our daughter's fourth birthday party last Saturday. I had come across these rose cakes on Pinterest on several occasion (see here or here) and really wanted to make one myself. I found piping the roses surprisingly easy and will happily undertake the process again.

A simple sponge cake (using 4 eggs), layered with lingonberry and apple jam as well as lemon-flavoured curd cheese cream, and topped with cranberry zefir (basically a type of Italian meringue; 3 egg whites and 300 g sugar is enough to frost the 26 cm cake).
