Essence of summer

img_0137



Last week in Auckland was rather overcast and rainy. Days are getting shorter. It's becoming harder to find strawberries in fruit and vege stores..... Summer is slowly fading away
I then decided to make the most of summer flavours while it's still possible.

The above layered cake is a decadent celebration of summer sweetness: Mango cream, coconut custard and melon mousse stand high and proud in between layers of soft sponge cake. Flavours and textures melt in your mouth in a firework of tropical extravagansa.

I loved it, a really superb dessert.... but once again, I had no one to share this delight with

  • Thank you! I tried to top it up with passionfruit ganache but somehow the milk curddled. What a shame!
    It may be a good experience for my little Valentine's cake, hehe.
