Experimental Baking

13 Oct

I’ve had an interesting day. In between making another set of masks for the Barcelona branch of the family, I’ve been trying to replicate the delicious vegan chocolate orange cake we had the other day.  The vegan sponge seemed to work well, I made a vegan  orange jelly to go in the middle and a vegan chocolate ganache and it did look lovely!  Sadly, it’s not a patch on my usual cakes and I will have to try again – halve the amount of cake, double the chocolate and sharpen up the orange jelly!

I’ve given a big chunk to our lovely taster next door. I guess her view will match with ours!

      I agree, it looks lovely! Even the birds have ignored it! 🙂

      Sadly not! I’m hoping the birds might like it but our daughter thinks they may not be able to fly if they partake of it! 🙂

      Sadly, it is the worst cake I have ever made! I shall try again with a different vegan recipe. It’s the waste that really galls me -550g flour – and the rest! 🙁

        Ah, yes. The waste You should see the tantrums when things go haywire over here! Not as mental as a certain Gordon Ramsay but things can get a little ‘blue’.
