I'm making the bisquit the lazy way, by beating the entire eggs and the sugar together in a waterbath. I seem to get better consistency with that method, and it saves quite a bit of time.... Looking forward to soon having an outlet close to my stove!
Add the sifted white whole wheat, starch, and brown butter and you're ready to go!
To add some excitement I decided to try a new decorating technique, a chocolate band / lattice that's wrapped around the cake. I covered the cake in white chocolate ganache, just to be safe, and then made the chocolate band. After 2 trials that ended in remelted chocolate I decided that it was good enough for my first trial. The top layer has the lattice, the bottom just a solid chocolate band.
Taste report will follow....
