Johanna wanted to surprise her sister Jessica on her 40th birthday with a special cake. She wanted a cake that oozed energy, excitement, colour, brightness, all the things her sister means to her. The one other thing to inspire me was that she was receiving a Black and Gold Hermes bag on the big day.
So we went for a black as black swiss chocolate buttercream creation. Layers of chocolate and vanilla sponge, chocolate torte, raspberry filled buttercream and topped off with fresh raspberries, passion fruit, white passionfruit ganache filled macarons, raspberry filled macarons and zingy chocolate shards. Oh and a little gold leaf bling to set it all alive.
