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.
