If you’ve ever had Opera Cake in the past, even if it was just this “one” time, then I’m sure that this classic French dessert needs no introduction to you… I’m positive that you remember the experience full well.
For those who are not familiar with this delicacy, let me fill you in on it: you’re looking at pure bliss, pure heaven, pure perfection. We’re talking thin sheets of delicate Joconde almond cake drenched in a sweet coffee syrup, topped with layers of melt-in-your-mouth coffee buttercream and silky smooth, super intense dark chocolate ganache. A luscious layer of soft and buttery, dark chocolate glaze finishes off this heavenly treat.
I’m not gonna lie to you, making Opera Cake from scratch will demand SERIOUS time and effort on your part, and I do mean serious. But, while it will have you spend a hefty chunk of time in the kitchen, I swear it’s so decadent, it’s totally worth all the hard work….
