Chocolate Prague Cake from Dish'd @ Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Hello Beautiful Cake

Made in Czech Republic

With a recipe dating back to 1879, this chocolate ‘Prague Cake’ is still one of the most popular cakes in Prague today. This version is expertly crafted with layers of light chocolate sponge and chocolate cream by pastry chefs in the Czech Republic. It is then covered in delicate crunchy chocolate curls making it a wonderful celebration cake to share with family and friends!

It arrived frozen and in one piece.

But don't pick it up with one hand! Because it cracked!

Sneak peak of the inside. :P

We defrosted it for 18hrs overnight in the fridge. 

And covered the crack with a generous sprinkling of choc curls (50% dark).
When we took it out of the box some of the curls came off, when frozen. 

I was going to do swirls of cream, but that failed....

We bought a dessert package for $20, as a promo offer.

It says it serves 12 but we cut it up into cubes, without cleaning the knife in between (ain't no body got time for that) and it now serves 31. It was for a dance party on a Friday Night.

To attach the raspberries I stuck a toothpick through each cube/serve. 

Then it sprinkled Violet Crumble dust (whoops) over it. 

In hindsight all it needed was something green, like mint. 

Someone got distracted looking for mint... flowers didn't taste good, unlike the cake which was rich, moist and delicious! Being quite rich I wouldn't eat more than two cubes at a time though. They were a hit! And the half that wasn't consumed during class I froze in sets of 2/4, and sent them to friends (1 confirmed the other is work in progress) who missed the class. Mr WIP said it was delicious too!

Would I recommend it? Yes - but only for a big party. If you live alone on the house on the hill like me, then no. It'll take you a year to finish this! If it's not for an event I wouldn't get it, especially as it's $35 and frozen, made god knows how long ago, and it's not exactly supporting local businesses. But I do love cake...
