Sweet Valentines - Blackberry Lemon Opera!
To honor the feast of St. Valentine and a twenty something years old love story with my beloved husband.... I made a treat, blackberry lemon opera. Layers of lemon syrup soaked joconde filled with white chocolate blackberry ganache and lemon French buttercream. The blackberries are from our summer harvest last year. Topped with blackberry glaze and fresh fruits. Decorated with a mixture of everything that was left on the bowls emptied in a piping bag! Happy Valentines for you all, stay safe and warm!
This cake was a happy accident for me. I wanted to hand carve the ganache, embedding roses all over. I didn’t like it so decided to ganache over it, which resulted in some of the carving being exposed. I loved it so I kept it and added more details. The flowers are wafer paper. I liked the contrast between the dainty flowers and the rough concrete finish. The cake is for my son-in-law who, though rough around the edges, loves flowers and pretty things ❤️
