This orange and almond cake has a big fan. A friend of mine orders it time to time, whenever she is having special occasion with her friend who has gluten allergy.
This time she only needed small cake, but rose and chocolate caging were called for to celebrate her friend birthday.
Remember this post?
Orange and Almond Cake with Chocolate Cage (reviewed recipe there)
First time I tried this cage, I used white chocolate to contrast with dark chocolate ganache. It was lovely and I love the look.
However, the friend wanted dark chocolate only this time, as another friend of hers does not like white chocolate.
Well, that’s I am here for. These sort of tweaking can be only possible because you are ordering your cake, not buying from a shop.
Well, I said I liked white cage before, but black on black wasn’t bad.
Sorry no inside picture of this cake, it had two layer of 15cm orange almond cake, with more chocolate ganache in the middle. The cage/ring is 18cm, dark chocolate. This cake is very moist and orangey, as it contains whole boiled orange. Very different from usual sponge.
Chocolate rose are made of chocolate clay. White leaves and birthday lady’s name are piped white chocolate.
Have a nice weekend!!
