Lemon Ginger Bavarian Cream
Cherry's Ginger Bavarian Cream cake made for Diana's birthday wowed me. It looked very pretty, very professional looking. I wasn't going to make it so soon because somehow I thought I had to save up the courage to do it. Now since my custard buns didn't work out for Mrs. Yip, I had a good reason to try making it, a lot earlier than my plan.
The cake is easy to make but assembly is hard, especially when my loose bottom cake pan is thicker than Cherry's. She gave me detailed instructions on how to put the cake together already, but I still had to modify it a bit to fit my thick cake pan. Livie wasn't feeling well today so the two of us couldn't go to the dinner. Without me being there to look after the cake, a lot of the lemon mousse was squeezed out when Ho cut it up. I think the problem was in the mousse, it was not thick enough. You can see the lemon mousse became very thin from the picture below. Room for improvement again!
