So after the all day class yesterday, I got back home and made… This.
Two tiers (that’s FOUR cake layers, people) of chocolate truffle cake, covered with white chocolate buttercream (yums), surrounded by swathes of dark chocolate, topped with gold lustre and chocolate balls (Maltesers, for those in the UK) and assorted fruit (red grapes, raspberries, blueberries… basically what I could find in my local supermarket at 11pm after I begged the security guard to let me in before closing).
Went to bed at 04:30. Cake got picked up 08:30. Hope it was worth it! I think I’ve made more cakes this week than I have in ages!
Now for some cawfee…
Let’s get this weekend started!
(*For those of you of a pedantic/OCD bent, I dressed the cake for the purposes of the photo. Don’t worry, the raspberries aren’t currently leaking over the white chocolate buttercream… The berries were delivered in a separate Tupperware container to be refrigerated until before the party. I’m good like that.)
