Caught The Swiss Roll Bug!

Today i had some friends over for dinner...dessert was two different rolls. One chocolate with mousse and oreo bits topped with cocoa and the other is a mango lemon roll. Extremely fun to make and delicious to boot!

Vanilla Bday Cake!

I love getting orders from customers that have ideas to what kind of cake they would like but thats not on the menu. This means that im able to have free reign over the decoration, resulting in an original cake. This is a vanilla cake with strawberries and whipped cream between the layers. The frosting is strawberry pink buttercream.

Squares and Pansies

This cake was requested by a dear customer of ours. Pansies and chocolate in a squared shape. I was checking up on my icing flowers and had only four pansies left so i had to substitute with other purple flowers...came out pretty nice!My normal brand of cream was out so i had to use this ultra expensive one that hubby brought from paris ( french whipping cream). My gosh the frosting was soo meltingly delicious. However the downside was that the piping didt really hold and it was quite difficult to spread evenly. Having a choice between taste or looks...i would definitely choose taste.
