If you regularly read these little posts of mine, you’ll be well aware that I am not much of a cake-eater.
Cake and buttercream are just not my thing. I don’t crave them or want to stuff them in my face the way I do a batch of perfect chocolate chip cookies.
But since I started my current job, I’ve been making layer cakes at work for the weekends. And I’ve discovered that people love them, and I really enjoy making them! Playing with flavour combinations and different cake elements is so much fun, and I love coming up with new ways to decorate them (check out my Instagram for photos of my layer cakes of past).
Making whole layer cakes for the blog is tough though. I mean, they take a lot of time and effort to make, and really, who’s gonna eat them?!
So recently, when I accepted my first-ever layer cake order from home, I got really excited that I’d be able to share a layer cake on the blog.
You’re going to have to visualise what it looks like inside, but this cake has three layers of chocolate cake with raspberry swiss meringue buttercream and hazelnut praline layered all up in between! X
UPDATE: So in 2016, I started selling custom cakes and desserts directly to clients, and have since removed this recipe. So sorry to have caused any inconvenience! If you’re based in Melbourne and would like to order a cake, please check out my order page, here. If you’d really like to make a layer cake and need a good recipe, shoot me an email and I’ll point you in the right direction! Natasha xx
