A sort of Daring Bakers round-upJune 1, 2008
I’ve spent a bit of time trawling through the amazing (and large!) Daring Bakers blogroll over the last couple of days, to see the impressive variety of Opera Cakes that the members have come up with. I’m amazed by what people have created, so want to share a few of my favourites here – I hope you enjoy looking (and drooling) too!
Lemonpi made this beautiful green tea, lemon and blackberry Opera Cake – it sounds delicious, and looks amazing!
Anita from Dessert First had another interesting , I-wish-I’d-thought-of-that flavour combination; her Opera Cake is Lemon and Lavender.
Very from Baking Obsession came up with this amazingly beautiful Opera Cake, with a white chocolate rose on top. Wow!
Addicted Sweet Tooth had the very gourmet flavour combination of pistachio and apricot - and stunning photography!
Pixie from Biting Goodness wrote a mini-opera about her experiences!
Hannah from Bittersweet came up with a whole new method for preparing a perfectly neat Opera Cake…
Judy from Judy’s Gross Eats came up with a fun twist on words for her cake – check it out here.
Speedbump Kitchen used one of my favourite non-traditional techniques to add the theme to her version.
La Casserole Carree is written in French, but her photos are beautiful enough to speak for themselves – and her Opera Cake has a gorgeous colour scheme!
Gabi from The Feast Within came up with an Opera Cake that I know will be appreciated by my youngest sister – and by me!
There are many other amazing cakes, so check the blogroll if you’re interested. I can see from these (and many other spectacular examples) that I have a long way to go – but hey, it gives me something to aim for!
