So this client of mine asked me if I could do a cake for a her sons 40-bday. And she really wanted a backgammon cake since he's much into that.
Challenge accepted -this was SOOOOO much fun to do!
Everything is actually edible!
the cake is made of something called sugarbread or something, which is a bit like sponge, but sooo much lighter and much more airy. I imagine its a bit like angels food cake (also a pretty tricky to work with).
The filling is creamed custard and raspberry mouse, since he's not so much into chocolate.
They liked it a lot!
