Opera cake is a French cake creation. Its architecture is much like tiramisu, but with a more modern sensibility. The top of a proper opera cake is an impossibly smooth surface of chocolate which sits eerily inanimate, like a sheet of a black ice.
Like tiramisu, and most cakes, opera cake tastes excellent. It offers high levels of taste and sophistication. It pairs well with anything expensive.
Opera Cake became an official snack on May 28th 2012.
