Mount Sinai Bar Mitzvah Cake
This cake represents part of the boy's Torah portion, when it describes God descending on Mt. Sinai to give the Ten Commandments. The Torah says "there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar.....Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire." Finally, Jewish tradition says that even though the mountain was in the desert, it bloomed when God spoke. Half the cake was yellow cake w/lemon SMBC and the other half was chocolate w/vanilla SMBC. I used ganache under the fondant for the first time, and it was wonderful!
