About this Bake

This was a cake my boss asked me to make for her 40th birthday. The bottom cake is a 10" chocolate cake with roasted hazelnut chocolate buttercream. It's topped with a lemon cake filled with lemon curd and white chocolate buttercream (this was the winner of the evening).

Top tip

When using lustre dust, I found it better to mix a thinner coat with alcohol, wait for it to dry and repeat until getting the desired shade. I used a paintbrush to transfer the gold flake to the cake. It gave me a bit more control as it's very tricky to use.
