I'm always looking for new & beautiful decorations for cakes...I have a whole (large) drawer crammed with dragees, sprinkles and sparkles. These are my latest acquisition...gorgeous pearlised chocolate truffles!
I loved the look of them so much that I bought 3 boxes.
And they were the perfect way to adorn today's Coffee Tree cake delivery...
Mocha Truffle Cake. Soft dark chocolate & espresso cake with buttercream frosting.
My good friend Joann, who has a wonderful blog too incidentally....visit it here ...asked me recently whether it's usual in the UK to leave the sides of layer cakes unfrosted. It made me think (as good questions do!) I usually don't cover the sides of everyday cakes...maybe because it makes them look too...gateau-like I suppose! I worry that it may put people off buying a slice, as they may feel it's too much of a luxury purchase. I could be wrong, though. Maybe I should frost more sides!!
I started with this one! Thanks for broadening my horizons, Joann!! x
I hope you have a wonderful day...it's grey and gloomy here. But it's February!! Not too long to Spring now...
