Opera Cake is a type of French cake. It is made with layers of almond sponge cake (known as Joconde in French) soaked in coffee syrup, layered with ganache and coffee buttercream, and covered in a chocolate glaze. According to Larousse Gastronomique "OpĂ©ra gateau is an elaborate almond sponge cake with a coffee and chocolate filling and icing.  An addictive bomb !!!!  Enjoy this virtual treat  of the cake which I made for my Sweet little Birthday boy yesterday !!!

I took all these pictures in hurry, as nobody had patience to wait for long time :):)

I adore this cake and have been too frightened to make it. Now that I see your scrumptious photos, I'm more scared! But they are a feast for the eyes.
