Directions

  1. Beat the egg yolks with water until frothy, gradually add the sugar and vanilla sugar. Beat the mixture until it is creamy.

  4. For the filling, bring the cream to a boil, add the chopped white chocolate until dissolved, stirring. Put the mixture in a bowl and let it cool.
  5. Then whip up the mixture for about 2 minutes and gradually add the room-temp butter. Then stir in the lemon liqueur, also add the zest and the juice of the lemon and stir.
  6. Coat the bottom cake with 1/3 of the cream, then put the next on top.
  7. To decorate, put the remaining cream in a piping bag and pipe on top. Decorate with the chopped pistachios.
