Opera Cake

Because I am a Type A personality and have a strong desire to make things precise, this cake spoke right to my heart. Swee assures us that "it's not too difficult to make an Opera; however, it's difficult to get all the layers the same consistent height." She further explains that this cake "needs to be only 4cm tall." 6 layers, perfectly measured. Be still my heart.

BUT, even if you're not a Type A, you can still enjoy this flavor-packed dessert: almond sponge cake, coffee syrup, dark chocolate ganache. Absolutely amazing.

Crunchy Chocolate Almond Cookies

Ginger-Orange Sandwich Cookies

Ginger-Orange Sandwich Cookies

"The texture of these cookies is very tender and the filling merges with the actual cookie. They are best when still warm, but you can keep them in an airtight container for about a month." If they last that long - yum!
