OPERA – Always On My Mind


This opera cake had been always on my mind. Why?….. cause of it’s colour, texture and flavour as what Michael Buble sings ” Always on my mind”. Opera cake is something that I cannot resist. And here, I did a four layered opera cake. Each layer consists of thin layer of almond sponge cake, coffee syrup, butter cream and chocolate ganache. At the end I top it with gold flake and chocolate bits.

This is something that I can’t resist myself from, opera, you always on my mind.


Love Sunny Yaw

    That is one hell of a dessert. I bet it’s like 200 calories per square inch.

    But who cares, I bet it’s amazing.

    I like Opera cake too. I read about crepe cakes in some blogs. To me, opera cake and crepe(layer) cake look almost similar..coz of the layers. How different are they ?
