We have friends coming over for lunch, so while the lemon tart for afternoon tea is in the oven I will quickly post some photos of the Christmas Tree Surprise Cake I made yesterday.
I made this for no other reason than I had an idea in my head of a Christmas tree cake and I wanted to see how it would turn out. Unfortunately it didn't turn out quite how my imagination hoped and when we took it to a friend's place last night my friend initially thought it was guacamole! Oh well.
It was inspired by the recent Darlek Tank Cake, but I didn't do any research before creating it. You should always research before creating a new cake. It does help.
It is a chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache icing laced with Cointreau and green food colouring. And why is it a 'surprise' cake? See what's inside...
