60Th Wedding Anniversary Cake
My neighbors recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, so I made an anniversary cake for the local community meeting. It's a vanilla bean cake with dark chocolate ganache filling, chocolate SMBC, more ganache on top, and tuxedo strawberries.
More of a "pie" than a cake. It's a thin chocolate cookie crust, filled with a dark chocolate mousse made with Valrhona 72% dark chocolate and a little Godiva liquor. Piped shell top (doesn't show very well) of white chocolate whipped cream with a little vanilla bean paste. Side rosettes topped with a dark chocolate dipped strawberried drizzled in milk chocolate. Made for my boyfriend Bob's 43rd birthday.
