Cake

kudde-tarta-0904

I have to show you my latest cake - another attempt at using sugarpaste, two full years after my last (and first) try. I made this at a cake class, with Maria at Jungbo - she's a really good cake baker, and occasionally offers classes. She also has a gorgeous little cabin that she rents out in the summers - I'll have her tell you more about that some time soon!

So - the cake consists of chocolate layers, coffee mousse and dumle ganache which I have tried before. It's then covered with a mixture of marzipan and sugar paste. And that's it! Really simple and really tasty. I enjoyed trying out the techniques for getting it to look "pillowy", and I probably never want to make the ropes again because that was no fun at all...

It looks so realistic. I feel like I want to snuggle into it - although hearing all the layers I think eating it would be a better idea - yum!
