Class Description

This classic French Gourmet Cake is one of Blandine’s favorite. It is made with layers of almond sponge cake soaked in coffee syrup, layered with ganache and coffee buttercream, and covered in a chocolate glaze. The taste is just amazingly delicious! You will of course be using Belgian chocolate and gourmet coffee. This cake will please anyone who tries it. This is also an ideal cake for large parties, quantities can be easily multiplied to feed 50 people! We have a non-coffee version: a Grand Marnier Opera Cake! Everyone will leave with 1 cake. Many techniques learned during this class can be used for other pastry needs. We will give you the recipes for the non-coffee version of this cake. Due to the technicality of this class, we highly recommend you have taken other baking classes before this one. We also strongly recommend eating beforehand as you will take your cake home.
