What is a Corset Cake?

How to Make a Corset Cake

Making a corset cake is easier than you might think!

Here are the steps to create your own delicious dessert:


* 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package instructions
* 1/2 cup of sugar
* 2 eggs, beaten
* 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1/2 cup of butter, softened
* 1/4 cup of heavy cream
* 3 large egg yolks


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry into a rectangle shape that’s about 1/4 inch thick.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, and salt.
4. Brush the sugar mixture over the surface of the puff pastry, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides.
5. Roll out the second sheet of puff pastry into a rectangle shape that’s about 1/4 inch thick.
6. Place this sheet of puff pastry on top of the first one, aligning the edges and pressing down firmly along the edges to seal the two layers together.
7. Use a sharp knife to cut the cake diagonally from each corner to the center. Fold the corners inwards, then fold the cake in half lengthwise. Repeat this process until you’ve folded the cake into a spiral shape.
8. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until they’re light and frothy. Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.
9. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add in the heavy cream and egg mixture. Whisk together until everything is smooth and well combined.
10. Pour the filling into the spiral-shaped cake, making sure to spread it evenly.
11. Place the corset cake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
12. Once finished, remove the corset cake from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Tips and Tricks

* If you want to take your corset cake to the next level, try adding some fresh fruit or chocolate chips to the filling for extra flavor.
* To make your corset cake look even more impressive, sprinkle some powdered sugar over the top once it’s finished baking.
* If you don’t have any heavy cream on hand, you can substitute it with sour cream or buttermilk. Just be sure to use a bit less of each ingredient if you do.
