All products must be at room temperature. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Softened butter with the sugar mix of fluffy cream. Add egg yolks, one by one. After absorbed completely from the mixture, gradually add the juice and zest and orange, vanilla and yogurt. Stir the mixture to become homogeneous. Add the sifted flour. Mix with a spatula or spoon. Finally, with mild agitation add the beaten egg whites to stiff. On the finished cake bases are cut desired shapes. I used 3 types - asterisk and 2 like Christmas trees. Just wanted to see what happens. In the rectangular cake size 35h10.5h6 cm put baking paper. Pour about half of cake mixes and arrange cut shapes. Must be close to each other. Cover with the rest of the cake mixes. Be smoothed. Cake bake in preheated oven at 170-180C. Check for readiness with wooden skewer. Baked cake is placed on a wire rack to cool, then remove from carefully cake shaped and decorated optional - sprinkle with powdered sugar or pour glaze. * 1 cup = 200 ml * In several places I see a similar cake. I like the idea much. And especially the ability to improvise - the dough for the cake is of your choice; figures - star, tree, fruit, heart for Valentine's Day, various geometric shapes, etc .; Color of dough for the cake and figures - white, brown, green, and others. This cake is not just for Christmas and New Year, and can be prepared in various occasion to.

Very nice idea, but I do not understand why three times and the figures do I go above and rearranged. Lost is any effect. But no taste remarks-eating and ask for more :)
