My cake baking challenge for this weekend was to make a first communion cake for our friends’ sweet little girl. I decided to bake an open book cake with two layers of filling – first layer with chocolate ganache & sour pitted cherries and the second one with a mascarpone cheese filling. It was a great experience decorating this cake and for a first attempt at making a book cake, I think it turned out nice. It took me some time to make it but the smile on Alessia’s face when she saw the cake was worth all the effort . Congratulations on your First Communion Alessia!
Time: I lost track of time but baking the cake & making the fillings would take around 1.5 hrs + chilling time… decorating the cake, a few more hours
