    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10 inch springform cake pan. Toss the apples in lemon juice. Whisk the egg whites with 3 tbsp cold water. Whisk in 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Stir in egg yolks, 1 at a time. Fold the flour, cornstarch and baking powder into the cake batter. Transfer to the prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake for 25 mins. Remove from the oven and leave the cake in the pan to cool.
    2. Bring the white wine, apples, cinnamon stick and 2 tbsp sugar to a boil then remove from heat. Mix 1/2 the gelatin with the apple juice and melt (If using sheet gelatin, squeeze any excess water from the sheets before melting). Add to the white wine and apple mixture. Let stand for 45 mins to thicken. Remove the cinnamon stick.
    3. Meanwhile, mix together the sour cream, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2-3 tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 cup sugar. Add the remaining gelatin, squeezing any excess water if using sheet gelatin, then heat gently until the gelatin melts. Chill until it begins to gel. Whip 1 cup cream until stiff then fold into the gelled mixture.
    4. Remove the cake from the pan and slice in 1/2 horizontally. Place the bottom 1/2 on a serving plate and place a pastry ring around it. Spread cranberry compote over the cake base, top with the sour cream mixture then use a spatula to smooth the surface. Place the other cake 1/2 on top and spread evenly with the cinnamon apple jelly. Chill for at least 3 hours.
    5. Whip the remaining cream until stiff. Mix ground cinnamon with 1 tbsp sugar. Remove the pastry ring from the cake, coat the edges of cake with the whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
