We're having a potluck lunch at work for Halloween and what else would I offer to bring but dessert?! This is a white chocolate espresso torte with hazelnut praline, according to the recipe a sophisticated take on tiramisu.
The sponge cake recipe for this torte was a flop so I had to throw it out. I took my vanilla bean cake recipe and edited the recipe to make it an espresso cake. The cake layers were soaked in a Kahlua-espresso soaking syrup and topped with a layer of chocolate ganache followed by a layer of white chocolate espresso mousse. The cake was iced in more chocolate ganache and the sides coated with hazelnut praline while the top of the cake is covered in white chocolate curls.
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
