Our monarch this year celebrated her 90th Birthday and the folks over at Stork obviously gave some thought on what cake the Queen may like …. And the answer was a Corgi Cake!
They recently challenged me to see if I could recreate their Corgi Cake and if nothing else I like a good challenge so jumped at the chance to give it ago.
After initially accepting the challenge it soon dawned on me that firstly I had never ever made a swiss roll and secondly I had never seen candy melt or used anything that involved piping before … so I ordered the candy melts, piping bag, acetate and this weekend finally got round to having a play.
I had presumed with it not being a bog standard cake I was going to struggle to make it but I have to say even I was rather impressed with my efforts this time!
So how did I get on? ….
I have to say I know my chocolate Corgi face is not as perfect as the one Stork did, however in my defence I have learnt a really good tip when working with candy melts … don’t work in front of an open window it solidifies the chocolate far quicker, hence the lines in my Corgi’s face.
I also had to substitute the apple compote for cherry in my recipe as I couldn’t get apple, also I think that lemon curd would work too.
I am totally thrilled with results it looked super and it tasted AMAZING!
For the full ingredients and method you can find the information over on Storks Corgi Cake Recipe.
