About the Parsha
VeZot HaBracha is the final chapter of the Torah, read on the holiday of Simchat Torah (“rejoicing of the Torah”). We celebrate the completion of the Torah, and immediately begin reading it again from Bereshit.
About the Dessert
This dessert was made to celebrate the completion of the Torah as well as our personal completion of a full year of Parsha desserts!
The cakes were bought from a bakery…
The handles are bread sticks inserted in the 4 ends of the cake rolls.
The breastplate is made using melted white and dark chocolate.
Print a design for the breastplate (I used a Google Image search for “Torah breastplate.”)
Place a piece of parchment paper over the printed picture.
Pour the melted white chocolate into a piping bag or a baggie. Snip off a small corner.
Carefully pipe the designs on the breastplate (they do not have to connect to each other).
Place the designs in the refrigerator to harden.
Place another piece of parchment paper over the same picture.
Spread dark chocolate to cover the entire picture, creating the base (or background) of the breastplate.
While the base is still soft, place the design pieces on top, according to their positions in the picture.
When complete, put the whole plate in the refrigerator to harden.
Place the breastplate on top of the 2 rolled cakes.
