I am very curious ecb8r2, how you make your black icing. Do you use melted chocolate or cocoa powder?
I am from a country where it is hard to find cakeflour (Holland). But after some search ( inspired by this site) I did find it and yes, it does make a difference. It gives a much softer and tender crumb. Teddybear soft.
My SMBC or IMBC are white. As in white enough. Not crisp white, but still white.. I live in Holland and luckely we cannot buy butters with yellow dye in it.

What would your hourrate be you give yourself?Serving sizes differ as well because you probable...
Besides a filling with fresh or preserved strawberries or raspberries, a filling with poached pears is very gourmet-like as well. It does not add any special effect to the colors, but it is a very sophisticated filling and goes perfect with champagne.
I am now actually doubting. Maybe it is the genoise in this assembled cake that makes the 2 days, not the daqcuoise?
