I had an unusual request from a customer last week… Lemon cake with Chocolate. I used Woody’s Luxury Lemon Cake and buttercream recipe, Rose’s Midnight Ganache recipe, fondant, gumpaste and isomalt. I followed Woody’s recipe to the T, except I had NO time for making lemon curd. I had to use store bought, which was rendered useless because the buttercream had almost no lemon flavor to it. I added almost 1/2 cup of lemon juice and more butter to the bowl and thankfully it produced a very similar result. I layered the cake according to the recipe, thin layer of the lemon buttercream on the outside, partially froze the cake, then topped it with a very thin layer of Midnight Ganache, partially froze the cake again, then added fondant and decorations.
I practically had to make all of the molds by hand for this cake, but they came out very nice, so I’m glad I had a chance to do it! The customers said the cake was divine, one said it was the best cake she’s ever tasted.
Another win! Thanks Rose!
