Mille Feuille Gateau by cakecrumbs Mille Feuille Gateau by cakecrumbs
This is the cake I made for my partner's mother and family for Mother's Day. It's layers of puff pastry and coconut cake filled with black cherries and cream. I dusted the top with icing sugar and caramelised stripes of sugar.

We all went out for breakfast to celebrate, so I was after a cake that tasted light and refreshing. No one wants on overly rich or sweet cake in the morning. Or maybe that's just me? I can barely deal with eating anything in the morning. either way, this cake filled the quota perfectly. There were no complains of bloated morning tummies after this one.

This looks simply divine! You must have worked on it for a good hour or more to have it look so exquisite! Interesting combination of using Cherries and Coconut together. I've not once heard of such a combination before not even in any of the cookbooks I've read. You have a great deal of skill to make this look so appealing and mouth watering at that. I'll have to give making something like this a try whenever the opportunity arises. It looks like a real challenge, but as long as one has confidence I'm sure it won't be too bad. There is absolutely no way I can't give you a good critique! Something like this deserves it hands down!

It looks and sounds so scrumptious! I bet your partner's mother loved it! I don't like feeling bloated in the morning as well, and usually take something light if I get hungry in the morning (unless the food is too irresistible haha).
Gorgeous work, and I say again, your partner, friends and family are so lucky to have you in their lives! :squee:

It's actually a relatively quick cake. Don't even have to ice it. I made it on a night when I was baking 5 other things and it was probably the quickest of them all.

That looks gorgeous! It's one of my favourite desserts and I can't remember the last time I had it. It's making me a tad homesick as well. :)
