So, I saw those cool 2020 trend "Island Cakes".
But I kinda live in Sweden, so I figured the Swedish approach would either be a cold greyish sea or, well.. a bog.
So Here's "Bog Witch Cake 2020"
I love moss, lichen, murky waters and fern.. <3
It was about challenging myself, learning new techniques and pulling it together over coordinating flavors but somehow it all worked. I figured, if I'd fail, I'd still have a pile of cake and a spoon. :3
What's in it?
Pale chocolate cardamom/lemon sponge cake, raspberry/passion fruit filling, dark chocolate cardamom/vanilla/sea salt ganache, milk chocolate cinnamon ganache, sugar jello, fondant grass and cookie crumb moss and soil. Lastly I made cinnamon coated walnut pebbles.(ALL the flavours)
It was rich, weighed half a ton and I obsessed over everything from baking the sponge to not melting it while taking the pictures.. But hecking heck, it looks like a bog and tastes divine! NJOM!
