Gradually add whites to the dough in 2-3 times, stirring from the bottom up with a spatula.

Grease * the bottom of the 2 springform pan with a diameter of 18 cm with butter.**
* Alternatively, you can put on the bottom of the form a sheet of baking paper and grease it with butter – this way it will be easier to remove the cakes from the form.
** If you do not have 2 identical forms, you can bake all the dough in one: be sure to adjust the baking time, checking with a toothpick.

Divide the dough in half, pour into two forms, smooth out. Bake for 20 minutes at 160°C.

Turn off the oven, leave the cakes in the oven with the door ajar for 10 minutes, then remove from the form and leave to cool at room temperature.

Pour cold whipping cream into the bowl and start to beat at a low speed, gradually increasing the speed. Gradually add the icing sugar, whip the cream into a dense foam.

Cover the top of the cake with cream, leave for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator. Remove the form. *
* Warm the sides of the form with your hands, the cream will slightly soften the heat from your hands and it will be easier to remove the form.
