Phantom of the Opera- Chandelier cake

Phantom  of the Opera is one of the most lavish and long lasting Broadway shows that is based on a novel by Gaston Leroux. It is about a man who was born with a horribly deformed face. He hides in the bowels of a Paris opera house where he toys with and torments the occupants. The show bursts with sexuality, mystery, innocence and passion.  Music composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber is absolutely mesmerizing. The sets and 19th century costumes are amazing.

Inspired by my favorite show, this is a chandelier cake.  The bottom tier was almond with raspberry filling, the middle layer was orange amaretto with cannoli filling and the top layer was chocolate with chocolate mousse filling. Tea lights illuminated the cake.

The Phantom of the Opera remains a stunning production that engages the ear, the eye and the heart and in this cake—the taste buds too.
