The Hunger Games "Cake"

So.... I've recently discovered a trailer of the upcoming film "The hunger games", and it was really cool, so I started reading the books, a light, but enjoyable, very enjoyable reading.
There was this part, where Katniss, the female protagonist, eats berries. This inspired me to create and dedicate to the book and the fans this cake.


Here comes the Hunger games Cake Recipe!

Ingredients for the cake:
150gr butter
120 gr sugar
3 eggs
2 spoons of berry-jam
200 gr flour
10 gr baking powder

Instructions:
Beat the butter until smooth, add the sugar. After beating, add the eggs, and the jam. Mix with the flour and the baking powder. Bake it in the oven starting 15 min on 140º, and another 20 on 160º, and last 5-10 min on 180º. It will come out spongy, like that. If you see it's getting brown, but not yet down, cover it with paper foil. :) Let it cool and cut it in half, horizontally.

Filling:
200ml heavy cream
4 spoons sugar
2 handful of berries, I took them of a frozen up package
2 spoons of water or lemon juice

Instructions:
Cook the frozen or fresh berries for 2 minutes with 3 spoons of water or lemon juice. Let them cool and pour the "water" over the first half cake. Then pour the berries over it.
Whip the heavy cream and mix the sugar. I used Vanilla-sugar so it tasted and smelled very good. Put the heavy cream over the berries and cover with the other half of the cake.

Topping:
100 gr dark chocolate
50ml heavy cream
other decorative elements like: whipped heavy cream, berries, etc

Instructions:
Melt the chocolate with the heavy cream. Let it cool a bit, it should start to get "harder", but don't let it get hard at all, just let it rest for half an hour. Afterwards, pour it over the cake.
Them you can decorate the cake, I for example took a bit of the whipped cream and some berries. :)

It's an easy cake, I would send it for Peeta if I could.
Hope you like it!



AHHH, by the way, this is just the cake once open:

The cake looks delicious! You're really good at baking cakes :)
I didn't know this movie "The hunger games", but after you mentioned I got curious and had to check it on wikepedia. It looks interesting.
