Ping, Ping! It’s Jessi sending me two videos of cakes with astonishing chocolate decoration and asking me which one we should try. But instead of chosing one, I just want to know for which occasion. Who needs a reason to bake cake? It will probably taste as good while sitting alone on the couch. But this cake was for her granny who celebrated her birthday at the beginning of this week (and luckily, I was part of it). So far, so good. Cause her granny is always serving a fresh strawberry cake for this occasion, we definitely knew – We won’t use fruits. Instead, we dug deep into the bag of
tricks calories and managed this Raffaello cake.
There she is, the super sweet temptation. Looks like it has been beamed right out of a fairytale and directly into our cozy garden. Well, alright. Just snapping your fingers won’t be enough to create the Raffaello cake. It took us a bit more effort. And we managed it without any major catastrophes. Because normally, when Jessi and I bake a cake (without trying it for weeks) something is always going the wrong way. So, it might happen that our cake turns into a mini version of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Or being pretty impatient, we mix together very cold custard and butter at room temperature to get buttercream. It didn’t go well.
Our only problem was a slightly runny coconut cream. But we were able to save it with a little magic ingredient. I wonder, if you can find this secret ingredient:
Wait, I have a little something for you! Here is the video of the chocolatey decoration we tried out.
With this in mind,
I wish you all a fabulous weekend.
