I present to you the “mosake” (mosaic cake)!
Me and my better-half celebrate our birthdays on the first days of January and, of course, the dates could not go without a cake.
The original idea was to make a simple cake with a mosaic band in the middle, but it felt wrong. Well not wrong… but little. As I was assembling, it was just too cute to be only a band and I went for the whole thing.
The succulents were a personal challenge. I have been thinking about succulents for a while, since they are everywhere in the (use-to-be-dry-not-anymore…) California, and this was a great match! The colors complement well and they look well placed.
- 6 x 8 in (it was quite tall);
- Orange and chocolate cake;
- White chocolate ganache filling;
- Gumpaste succulents and cords.
Special thanks to Valerie Pradhan, from the Wilton Method, from who I learnt the technique to make this beauty possible.
