Happy 80th Birthday, Jacques Pepin

Jacques Pepin's 80th Birthday Cake. Created for Martha Stewart. Martha asked me to recreate the cover of Jacques Pepin's groundbreaking cookbook La Technique in cake form to celebrate his 80th birthday. Under the fishy exterior is a devils food cake with a rich ganache filling.

It's Jacques pepin's birthday and we baked him a cake emulating the cover of his breakthrough book La Technique!
