I love coming up with decadent, extravagant and indulgent desserts, especially when the results are so fabulous! My Vegan Opera Cake combines a fluffy sponge, a creamy buttercream, a rich coffee syrup and a smooth chocolate ganache. It takes time, concentration and effort, but the results are well worth it. It's looks beautiful as the feature of a high tea, morning tea or party platter, and can be made in advance and frozen until needed. It's a rich and complex cake that will hit all the right spots. 

*Try not to confuse the layers. Your opera cake should be made up of (from top to bottom): croustillant, sponge, coffee syrup, buttercream, sponge, coffee syrup and ganache.

Before I was a vegan I had a few lovely pastry recipes that I never expected to use again, and I pretty much gave up on enjoying store bough pastries as well. It wasn't until recently that I decided to attempt a vegan version of my favourite pastry, the pain au chocolat, which I'm excited to report turned out magnificently! This recipe is wonderfully easy to make but does take time and patience, and should definitely be enjoyed in moderation. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate, jams or fruit, too!
