Earl Grey & Fig Cake with a Nutty Fig Filling and Cream Cheese & Mascarpone Frosting – The softest and most delicate cake that compliments any event or even simply with a good cup of tea.
I’m back in Cape Town this weekend! Beautiful, beautiful Cape Town. I love coming here, no matter the reason, I love the people, the views and most of all the vibe of the whole city. Everything is so gorgeous and filled with happy vibes. Perhaps it’s time for a move ;). This weekend the whole family is down here for my cousins wedding and although weddings are great, family holidays can often turn out to be a little stressful. So what better way to bring everyone together than with cake right? Especially this Earl Grey & Fig Cake with a Nutty Fig Filling!
I am incredibly proud of myself lately, I have been pumping out cakes one after the other and they have all been simply delicious…even if I may say so myself ;). The Champagne Ombre Cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream was pure perfection and now this Earl Grey & Fig Cake with a Nutty Fig Filling! YUM! I think we are probably all starting to pack on the pounds…but hay, all for the love of cake right.
I love this Earl Grey & Fig Cake with a Nutty Fig Filling because the earl grey flavour works so beautifully with the figs. It is very subtle, almost barely there but just as you finish chewing, that gentle earl grey flavour sneaks onto your taste buds. This plus the delicious crunchy and chewy “figgy” nut filling and the beautifully soft cream cheese frosting and you pretty much have everything you could ever ask from a cake. On top of it all, it really does look absolutely breath taking on a table. It really is something else, something that people aren’t used to when it comes to cake and everyone has been absolutely in awe of its beauty and most of all its delicate flavours.
Love it? Why not PIN IT?
