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!
