Red Wine Cake with Edible Play Do Tokens for the Step Counting Competition

At DLR, we had a step counting competition several weeks ago that was a lot of fun. The goal was for everyone to become a bit fitter, using step counters to see how far (or not far at all) we walk each day - and of course to compete against the other departments while motivating each other to be more active! The competition ran virtually through all German DLR sites from Berlin to Oberpfaffenhofen, and you could look at your progress in the form of these cute tokens. My department didn't win, but since we came first of all the space operations departments, we have definitely earned a cake :-)

Ingredients for 30 servings:
500 g butter
400 g sugar
mark of 1 vanilla bean
6 eggs
500 g flour
2 P. baking powder (15 g)

Preheat the oven to 175°C with convection and line a baking rack with baking paper. 
Beat the butter, sugar, vanilla mark, and eggs. Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa and ground almonds and add the mix to the beaten ingredients. Add the red wine and the melted chocolate, mix carefully with a spatula. Pour the batter into the rack and bake for about 50 minutes.

Let the cake cool completely, melt the chocolate (baine marie or microwave) and mix it smooth. Prepare the edible play do according to instructions and knead it through by hand, form decorations.

The chocolate painting is supposed to depict the route across Germany, the edible play do tokens the DLR sites...and tomorrow we shall see if all that walking paid off ;-)
