My first parisian cake has been delivered on saturday…..I’m so happy!

My friend Silvia and I have been having this project in mind for quite a while: we have been discussing the possibility to put together european taste and american/british look, and this was the first time we had the chance to try all the things we had imagined….and it worked!

Here is the result:Image

We made the cake for a guy with very high standards in matter of food (oh right, I’m in Paris!) so he asked for no artificial looking colours and a “french” sort of approach for what concerned the taste.

So we came up with a chocolate mud cake enriched in water for a lighter consistency (and in butter..you know, for the french taste), filled with a chocolate and hazelnut croustillant, a thin layer of dark chocolate ganache and a vanilla chantilly.

For the decorations we used three different variations of chocolate chantilly and finished with a vanilla one….Yes, it was pretty amazing!

I’m so happy with the result and mostly with the fact that the two of us together can learn so much from each other!

I bet our friends and friends of friends are going to put on a lot of weight in the next few months…and yes, it would totally be our fault!
