Have not posted in a while. Still have about 10 cakes to get through in Rose's Heavenly cakes. :)
Here is the cordon banana cake from the cake bible.
I doubled the recipe and baked it in a bunt pan. I also used muscavado sugar instead of regular. It came out delicious but a bit on the chewy side. I think that the caster suger must tenderize it a bit. I made a simple ganache to cover it.
Some of Rose's brioche I made.
I went to a sephardic conference. Cookbook authors Pupa Dweck and Stella Cohen spoke. Stella was a real doll, she stole the show.
Stella Cohen, author of Stella's Sephardic Table. She gave out some of her home made marzipan and other treats when you came over to her table afterwards to browse her cookbook.
Pupa, author of Aromas of Aleppo
These were just so fab. From a sephardic wedding in Deal we went to. I had to post.
...And the cake. Boy do I feel inadequate.
