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.
