Potted African Violet Cake

Potted African Violet Cake

Recipe from Napa Valley’s Perfect Endings bake shop. Never heard of Perfect Endings? They’re one of the premiere bakeries in California’s Napa Valley, specializing in uber-creative, life-like edible masterpieces. Their cakes are crazy good and equally crazy expensive, so any occasion to splurge on one at home is worth it.

Here are the delicious details: The cake’s exterior consists of a coffee buttercream “pot” topped with hand-sculpted African Violet blooms (sugar paste is a magical thing) and green fondant icing leaves. Cut into the flower pot and you’ll find a velvety-rich, five-layer chocolate devil’s food cake with chocolate caramel truffle cream filling. I mean, really? Can’t you just imagine taking a bite of decadent devil’s food cake, its crumbs held together by rich, caramel cream? Envision it in slo-mo with a sultry bass line (“bow-chick-a-bow-wow!”) and you’ve got yourself a true perfect ending to any meal.
