Candy Mountain Candy Cake

Anyways, I promised that I would make a candy mountain cake for a friend’s birthday. Since we were both on vacation on the day itself, I made the cake for my own birthday and we shared. So here it is, the candy mountain candy cake:

For this cake, I used the “wonder recipe” (in German). I prepared something in between 1.5 and 2 times the amount and baked one 26 cm cake and two smaller ones. The large one was cut in three layers and filled with lemon curd (I used this recipe, also in German, double amount), and I also used lemon curd between the smaller ones. Then I carved the candy mountain shape from the two small cakes. In the end, I used white ganache to cover the cake, and colored it pink for the candy mountain. With all the cooling times in between, it took three days of work, but it was worth it.

Belated happy birthday to A. and me 🙂
