Preparation -- 10 minutes

Start by making two simple cakes. MIX sugar, butter and vanilla sugar in your stand mixer, or handmixer bowl, until a very smooth mixture, appears. One at a time, add the eggs and keep on mixing.

Start adding the flour little by little and keep on mixing until you've reached a smooth and light yellowish batter. USE butter to coat the spring forms and dust them with flour. Pour the batter into round spring forms.

PRE-HEAT the oven to 165 degrees Celsius or 330 degrees Fahrenheit.

Baking the summer fruit celebration cake -- 70 minutes

DIVIDE the batter in two and POUR the batter in the prepared spring forms. BAKE the two cakes in about 1 hour. Don't open the oven in the meanwhile otherwise, the cake will collapse. POKE with a wooden skewer to check, when it comes out clean, the cakes are cooked.

Let them cool off completely on a cooling rack. MIX the butter, teaspoon vanilla extract and powdered sugar until you've reached a very smooth buttercream. That's it! PLACE one of the cakes on a cake stand.

Divide a layer, not too thick, evenly over the top and place the second cake on top. COAT the cakes with the rest of the buttercream, this will go best using a small cake spatula.

PEEL a mango and cut half of it into thin slices. DECORATE the cake with the summer fruit, as much as you like. CREATE a bain-marie by adding a layer of water to a pan and placing a bowl on top with the pieces of white chocolate.

MELT the white chocolate and drizzle on top to finish it off. Enjoy this delicious cake!
