Mini Opera Cakes are so cute! And these things are tasty. An opera cake is layers of almond sponge cake dipped in espresso syrup, coffee buttercream and dark chocolate glaze. Coffee buttercream is one of the most delicious things you will ever taste. It is so good. I wanted these to be bite size so I cut them to be an only an inch square.
I made an apricot version of these in Culinary School for my petit four project and I fell in love. This is the classical version.
