...to paraphrase Carl Sagan.
Astronomy was the theme I chose for my baking practical. My cake represents what an amateur astronomer would see in the night sky.



The cake (sky) is dark chocolate and raspberry with a raspberry crme mousseline layer (colours in an aurora). Chocolate Almond Italian Buttercream rosettes on the top (the Rosette nebula), decorated with fresh raspberries and chopped almonds (various celestial objects). Surrounding the cake is a dark and white chocolate band (the Milky Way).

Thanks for looking!
