Angel Pear Gateau by cakecrumbs Angel Pear Gateau by cakecrumbs
This is the Father's Day cake I made for my dad this year. I usually make him mudcake, but I wanted to go for something different.

This cake is two layers of madeira sponge. The top layer has poached pears baked into it. The cake is layered with apricot jam, sprinkled with almonds, topped with a spun sugar halo and trimmed with a gold ribbon.

Recipe at the Cakecrumbs blog: [link]

This is the first time I've revisited spun sugar since I finally got it to work last Easter:

Even tough I don't like fruits in pastries, I must admit that this looks absolutely mouthwatering :D

That makes me so sad! Fruit + pastries, I think, is the most amazing food on the entire planet.

Hehe. To me it is the exact opposite: I only like fruits in their pure and original form (except for juices)...no fruit icecream, no dried fruits, no food in pastries XD The sensation while chewing them like that is gross to me :iconhuarghplz:

I like looking at pictures of it, though :nod:

Oooh, that makes sense. Do you like uncooked fruit in pastries (like a fruit flan, for example)?
