International cakes known throughout the world are a sure success when well prepared
In this course you will make some of the most iconic cakes that have withstood the test of time, for instance:
A pavlova (named after the Russian prima ballerina Anna Pavlova), this time with high edges – crisp on the outside and tender on the inside – and topped with whipped cream and fruit.
From France, a namesake layer cake (in honor of the actress Sarah Bernhardt) featuring a steamed gluten-free sponge.
From England, a crumble that originated from the use of ripe fruit during the Second World War. Today we prepare it with rhubarb and apple.
We will make a classic red velvet cake, typical of American desserts and famous for its moist sponge cake with cream cheese frosting.
Of course, we couldn’t overlook a cake that can be prepared without the oven. We are talking about chocolate mousse with a hazelnut base – it’s a combination that everyone likes.
By the end of this course you will be able to create perfect cakes for any occasion.
