'Snacking cakes' are some of the best kinds of cakes to make! They don’t require much besides a few ingredients and a spoon and a whisk. They are humble everyday treats and wonderfully delicious! Not only will you make three different cakes and fillings, you will also learn to make edible flowers and other special toppings.
Week 1 ~ Mocha Cardamom Cake:We are topping this cake off with a lovely maple coffee or cocoa glaze and whip. To give this cake a final flourish, we will make an edible peony out of modeling chocolate.
Week 2 ~ My Best Carrot Cake:
This cake is stuffed with sticky sweet chopped dates and toasty pecans, and all the spices you need. We will top this beauty with a dollop of creme fraiche whip and an arrangement of edible hydrangea petals and daffodils.
Week 3 ~ MiIk Chocolate Chip - Hazelnut Cake:
This cocoa cake is very decadent and the combination of milk chocolate and toasty hazelnuts is as good as ever. We will also make a hazelnut nutmeg brittle and cocoa whip to make this cake unforgettable!
