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.

Thanks to a wonderful Christmas present from her sister (Martha Stewart's cupcake book!), Shawnda's favorite Italian dessert gets cupcake-ified. "Moist" cake and "rich and fluffy" frosting combine for all the flavor of the real thing. Here's to making our cake and eating it, too!
