Essence of summer


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.
