Today my father, George, became 61 years old. The sunflower cake was decorated by me and the chocolate cake by my mother. My children were excited about both!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was a surprise cake, that was created for my manager’s birthday, which were celebrated in Paphos (a town in Cyprus). The cake had three layers: the first and the third layer were chocolate fudge cake and the middle one was a Madeira cake. All layers including the ganache filling were made with fructose sugar. I have to admit that I was very worried about the taste of the cake, since this was the first time I was using fructose sugar in my recipe. Fortunately the taste was very good and my manager and colleagues were thrilled with the result. The decoration was made with a traditional fondant icing. I don’t think fructose sugar can create a nice fondant, but I promise that I will give it a try in the future. My manager is retiring soon so I have to think of a new cake for him. Mr. Kyriacos Georgiou is one of the best managers I ever had, and I am very glad I met him and I worked with him. I wish to him and his family all the best for the future.
