Great British Bake Off Challenge – Week Nine Technical: Les Miserable

The technical for week nine was a Les Miserable cake! Well, I guess they are more mini cakes since there are supposed to be nine of them. Now this cake almost stumped me because there is so little information on the internet about this recipe! I was expecting Prue to have offered up the recipe she uses but no! Maybe the recipe is a closely guarded secret or something. I managed to find some semblance of guidance and came up with the recipe below! The process of making this was more fun than I expected although I can’t say I’m a big fan of the pistachio flavoring. This cake felt like a flavor bomb. There layers were filled with pistachio, lemon, and cherry. What could be better than that?
