  • GBBO Opera Cake Kit

    As seen in Bake Off challenges, Opera Cakes are famous in French patisserie, made with layers of almond sponge cake, also known as Joconde, soaked in coffee syrup, layered with ganache and coffee buttercream, and covered in a chocolate glaze.

    Fraisiers get their name from fraise, the French word for a strawberry… Another classic French dessert, it consists of delicate layers of Genoese sponge, sometimes called chiffon cake, moistened with sugar syrup, stacked with fresh strawberries and crème pâtissière and topped off with almond paste.

    There are many regional variations of both these cakes, but we’ve enclosed our recipes for the classic versions along with ideas for other delicious options too.

    Kit includes:

    1 silicone mat; 1 Opera Cake frame; 1 Fraisier cake frame; recipe leaflet. Silicone baking mat is freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe as well as oven safe to 240°C. 38 x 28cm.

    "Opera cake kit skew."

    This is for the experienced cook. I was so disappointed that there were no diagrams or better still an educational video for the use of the equipment. I had assumed a true rectangle which I had hoped to use as a template cut-out for other purposes such as making a gingerbread house but the angles were not square which would result in a skewed rectangle! No use in the house building! But perhaps I was expecting too much. The frames were well constructed to be fair. If you won't mind the slight skew distortion of the rectangle would be useful. Sadly not for me.

    A note from the team

    We're sorry to hear you've been disappointed with this product and can understand your frustrations. Some instruction booklets use diagrams rather than clear text and can be a little confusing, especially if not showing the angle that you've decided to view your creation from! However there's no excuse for a poorly constructed house that's been let down by it's foundations.We hope you were not too disheartened.
