Mid Winter's Dream


This cake was a donation to a church auction. The design came to me while 2' of snow lay on the ground outside, ergo, tropical flowers and tropical flavors! The bottom layer is mango cake, torted with fresh blackberry filling, then cheesecake mousse imbedded with with fresh blackberries, and top layer is a key lime cake torted with passion fruit curd and fresh mango chunks. It is covered in passionfruit/white chocolate ganache and overlaid with white chocolate MFF. All the flowers are made of gum paste. It didn't bring what it was really worth, but hey---it was for the Boy Scouts, a good cause. And I truly loved making it. Snow, who cares?
