The Twenty First 3

This cake, made by the Chef, is a Mississippi Mud Cake. But the reason I did this close up photo is to show the colour and design of the fruit used to decorate it. The trick is, according to the Chef, is to get the chocolate icing warm, but the fruit slices cold. When the fruit is pressed onto the icing, it goes hard and holds the fruit in place.
This seems to work just fine, but Chef does admit to sometimes using jam to glue the fruit on.
This cake was used as the 21st Birthday cake by the Central Otago Regional Orchestra, and was very popular. It is very rich, so you do not need a big piece, so there was even some left over.
