I've been wanting to try this recipe out for quite some time so a work potluck lunch provided the perfect opportunity. I had made a gumpaste peony and happened to have a can of bronze lustre spray and decided that I thought this would make an interesting effect.
The base layer was a chocolate sponge cake topped with a layer of dark chocolate mousse and then a layer of white chocolate mousse. I sprinkled chocolate shavings on the top of the cake and added a few gold wild roses and some silver leaves for a total metallic design.
Many people weren't able to make it to the event so I had expected leftovers but there wasn't so much as a crumb left on the plate so I think it's safe to say the recipe was a success. Now I'll start looking for an excuse to make a chocolate/ passion fruit combination....
