Valentine Cards Sunday, Jan 24 2010 

Saturday evening brought a tiny bit of creativity in the form of more Valentine cards.  I’m still fighting with myself to really get going with some full fledged art, but for now this will have to do.

Death By Chocolate Birthday Cake Thursday, Jan 21 2010 

10″ quadruple layered death by chocolate cake.  4 layers of dense chocolate cake layered with chocolate mouse, frosted with chocolate butter cream and coated with thick, oozing layers of chocolate ganache.  Dark chocolate shavings and a chocolate “Happy Birthday Anna Marie” finish it off.

Another doozy of a cake!  At least 5 pounds of chocolate here.  The party that this baby went too sent back reports that everybody went back for seconds and thirds.

Quite a doozy of a cake I’d have to say.  I do believe it weighed several pounds upon completion!!  Rich chocolate and coffee perfection!

Dragonfly Wedding Cake Thursday, Jan 21 2010 

This 6″ , 2 layer Dragonfly cake and mini cupcakes was made for a friends wedding in August 2009.

This tiny cake was used as their “cutting” cake in the absence of an official wedding cake.  The cupcakes where served to guests in lieu of cut cake.  Bride and groom attempted to take the remainder of the cake home for later consumption, but due to melting frosting and perhaps a few too many glasses of wine had by the bride, the cake slid out of her hands and onto the floor.  Luckily, she knows where to find more cake when she needs it!

Chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream filling and vanilla butter cream frosting.

The cupcakes are chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream or vanilla cake with chocolate butter cream.
