The Ras Malai Cream Cake

This layered sponge cake is based on the flavors of Ras Malai. There is no Ras Malai inside the cake – just the flavors. Each forkful is bursting with flavors of Cardamom, Ricotta, Saffron and Rose Water. The Sponge cakes are infused generously with cardamom and rose water reduced milk and the frosting is mascarpone with saffron in it. I used the flavored whipped Ricotta as the layer.

Give this cake a go and I can vouch that, you will leave your guests speechless.
