No Opera Cake, 2 birthday cakes instead

I’m really sorry to say that I didn’t do this month’s Daring Bakers challenge, an Opera cake. We’re moving this weekend and there’s absolutely no time. But at least I’ll let you see the two birthday cakes my mother made for her 60th birthday. I know, I’m lousy, but she really insisted. I promise! The chocolate cake is has two fillings: chocolate mousse and Daim cream.
The other cake also has two fillings: whipped cream with raspberries and lemon mousse. Delicious and beautiful! But now back to prepare for the move, see you!

    Your mum is such an artist! I can see where you get your ability to make beautiful food from.

    All the best with the move this weekend – it is such a time-consuming process!
