I first tried the Opera while on a cruise on my honeymoon. I was very excited to find a recipe for it, but this turned out nothing like the dessert I had. The eggs in the cake were extremely overwhelming. They didn't add anything to the recipe, and it seemed like I was baking an omelet. The ganache was very good, but I would add less butter to the buttercream to make it more spreadable (as suggested by another reviewer). I wanted to like this. Overall I wasted a lot of time and ingredients, and now I'm trying to come up with a last minute dessert to have for Christmas.
