Gateaux De La Nuit

Here’s the latest cake … a light yellow almond sponge filled with orange curd and frosted in almond buttercream. Since my Grandmother’s favorite flowers are hydrangeas, I figured those would do the trick here.

Hopefully there will just be this ONE cake this year. Last year there were THREE giant identical cakes for the family who considers a slice to be approximately 1 mm in thickness. That’s a story for another day however.

The infamous noodles my Grandmother needs at any Chinese birthday celebration for good luck are in the fridge as well – “sesame” noodles made with peanut butter, sesame seeds, fresh ginger, fresh garlic, hot sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, bell peppers, seeded cukes, bean sprouts, scallions and topped with peanuts and cilantro.
