Cratered Moon Cake for Space Birthday Party

Creating birthday cakes is a quite difficult task, when you want to impress the guests and the birthday boy all toghether by visual appearance and taste. The task gets even more challenging, when you dislike fondant icing…

This cake is a stack of 4 circles in different sizes of white almond cakes. The cakes are combined and frosted with a mascarpone-yoghurt cream with a bit of black food color for a touch of grey.

The craters are circles of white choccolate with grey food color (use food color soluble in choccolate, others will break the choccolate!). I simply scooped the choccolate on backing sheets to form circles with a bit of uneven surface.
