My own cake challange

The May 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Emma of CookCraftGrow and Jenny of Purple House Dirt. They chose to challenge everyone to make a Chocolate Marquise. The inspiration for this recipe comes from a dessert they prepared at a restaurant in Seattle.

As I’ve let others know on the DK website, I am unable to make this yummy sounding desert. Instead I’ll share pics of the celebration cake all my time this month has been dedicated to. It is to celebrate the conclusion of the volunteer ambulance service I used to belong to. As the metro expands, this country volunteer depot is now filled by paid staff. It’s a shame that the community members can’t help and volunteer here any more, but we’ll have fun celebrating with each other tonight.

 

The cake is a chocolate 4 layer cake layered with raspberry swiss meringe butter cream, from the recipe by sweetapolita’s site. Covered with choc ganache, rolled fondant, piped with some royal icing, be-ribboned, and hand painted details, as well as the crowning fondant figurines and model fondant ambulance equipment, and dead patient 🙂

 

hope everyone else enjoyed the rich marquise.
