Apple cake

We really like apple cakes and as we have plenty of apples, we turned on the oven and prepared a delicious cake. It is very easy to prepare in a relatively short time.
I invite you to try it too.
I had as a source of inspiration a recipe from the bucataras.ro website.

Apple cream:

CAREFUL! Prepare the cream when everything is ready for assembly, and prepare in two slices (ie divide the ingredients in two and prepare the first slice of cream, spread on the counter, wait a few minutes, prepare the jelly and put on top, wait a few minutes, only then prepare the next slice of the remaining ingredients).

Hydrate 5g of gelatin in 25ml of cold water for 10 minutes, then dissolve in a steam bath, according to the instructions on the envelope.
Mix the cream and liquid cream with the ground sugar until it increases in volume and becomes aerated. Add 500g of apple puree and mix.
