Ok, so this IS the last cake I’m making to order. Hrm. I think I’ve said that before.
Anyway. This was for a great friend’s 40th and after a long baking break, I was quite nervous about how this was going to turn out. In the January cold I wanted to make something reminding us of summer so I went for summer flavours – coconut, raspberry and passionfruit, each as a mousse in this three layer cake. The cake was covered in gently striped buttercream, reflecting the inside layers, with white chocolate ganache drips, desiccated coconut, fresh raspberries and physalis.
Please excuse the step-ladder photos – I ran out of time!
