my friend kathy took near 100 process photos, my friend craig took photos of kathy and i taking photos. here are the photos i took for ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Le Succes (page 281). this is hector’s take at its best!
we did several tests, regarding the lemon tea flavoring on the ganache. we compared unflavored ganache made with the best chocolate known by mankind vs lemon tea flavored ganache. people’s choice was the lemon tea version, something about the tangy lemon making a nice zing with the sweet meringue nut discs.
my friends never tried this cake made with almonds, we used mac nuts instead, it really was fabulous, comparison not needed!
this is the most spectacular flourless chocolate cake i know of, where simplicity is respected, make it as soon as you can.
