Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes. When no words are needed.
Hi, friends! I’m so pumped today because I’m sharing one of the most interesting recipes I’ve tried this year. Also, I’m absolutely proud of my work. Even though it’s still June, I believe these Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes will be among 5 best recipes I’ve shared of this year.
As you see, I’m still that old humble Ben you’ve known for a few years.
Last week I posted the recipe for these Chocolate Amaretto Mini Layer Cakes I made for my birthday. I also announced the second cake would be coming shortly. I even hinted that it would be about the L…R world.
Unfortunately, nobody seems to have figured my puzzle out. That’s fine, though. I understand. That was a hard task. Indeed, what kind of connection would anyone see between me, this blog, and lavender?
These Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes turned out to be Andrey’s favorite. No wonder. If the Amaretto cakes being still delicious, had the more classic flavor, these guys were more sophisticated.
What was special about these cakes?
Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes
First if all, the biscuit which turned out super chocolate and moist, with a creamy, fudgy texture. I can compare it with good brownies. Look how silky they look! However, keep in mind if you’re not a fan of a fudgy kind of brownies, bake the cake for additional 5-7 minutes. It won’t be like a sponge cake, though.
Secondly, the tart and luscious blueberry curd perfectly balanced out the sweetness of the chocolate. I only partially strained the curd, so some berries were bursting in the mouth.
Lastly, this lavender cream cheese frosting was that mild, rich, and decadent bridge between all parts of the cakes. It perfectly balanced the rich chocolate biscuit and luscious curd. As the matter of fact, lavender and chocolate are great friends. Lavender goes well with blueberries too (Check this Coconut Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream).
Altogether, these flavors and textures make an elegant combination. That’s like an explosion!
I might not be fully satisfied with the way these Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes look, but as I always say, I don’t have enough skills, imagination, and patience to fabulously decorate cakes. Besides, there’s one good excuse I love to stick. In my book, homemade cakes have to be imperfect :)
However, I still tried to manage some kind of ombré decor by mixing curd and frosting. Failed I or not, you tell me. Just remember that too much truth may upset me, and I won’t ship you any of these delicious Chocolate Lavender Blueberry Mini Layer Cakes :)
