A decadent raffaello cake which is made using almonds and coconut. Taste so rich and makes your special day even more special.
I have been wanting to make this cake for like so many months. Ferrero rocher and raffaello are my favorite chocolates on earth. I wanted to bake cakes inspired by them for a long time. Finally i made it this month and it turned out delicious.
It was my dream to bake this cake, Finally i did it and it was so delicious and decadent. I am telling you, this is one of the best ever cake i ever baked.
Also check out my ferrero rocher cake
This is a eggless sponge milk cake, soaked in sweetened condensed milk and cream sauce. Then the frosting is made using condensed milk, white chocolate and cream. The frosting is thick and sweet and luscious. To give the taste of raffaello, i added some coconut in the middle of the cake. Then the whole cake is frosted and topped with almonds and coconut and finally the crowning flory raffaello chocolates.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
