I offered to bring a dessert to Christmas Eve dinner and ended up deciding to try this gingerbread cake roll with eggnog cream cheese filling that I found on Pinterest.
I'm not a huge fan of gingerbread but this cake was pretty good and the filling was delicious! It was a huge hit and there wasn't a crumb left when dinner was done.
I have never made (or eaten!) Princess Torte before. A friend specifically requested this cake for her birthday a few months back and I was excited to try it.
The cake is topped with a marzipan rose and a few marzipan leaves. I was really happy with how the rose turned out especially since there aren't cutters and you just shape the petals with your fingers!
The cake is a light vanilla sponge that is cut into three thinner layers.
The cake is filled with a vanilla bean custard creme, whipped cream and raspberry vanilla bean jam and then covered in green marzipan. It was quite yummy and I would definitely make it again!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
