I'm afraid most all of you are missing out on this German pastry delicacy known as "Little Mountain Peaks" (also called "mountain climber" or "shrapnel" in some parts of the country):

cocoa, buttercream, waffle floor & shortcrust mixed together, covered in dark chocolate. So yummy πŸ’•

@fribbledom Didn't know we had this in Germany. πŸ€”

@DC7IA @fribbledom Hooray, I'm not the only one who obviously has never heard of this before...😳


@encarsia @DC7IA

Maybe you know them as "Hackstockkratze" or "Punschberg"? That's what they call them in Berlin. Now I'm officially running out of names for it, though πŸ˜‚

@fribbledom @DC7IA Nope and nope.
It looks like one would create this from buttercream leftovers (I have some really good cake bakers in my family but I have never seen this).

I should try to make these because I'm not very good at cutting sponge layers for cakes and they look delicious.

@tethre @fribbledom @DC7IA Taken into account that I've never seen those probably somewhere I never go...πŸ€”

Yes, this answer is not helping anybody here. :D

@encarsia @fribbledom @DC7IA yeah, i may just shred my passport, as i am *clearly* not german πŸ˜‚
