My take on the WBH winter wonderland cake. A 10" freckled mocha cake with chocolate hazlenut mousse filling and frangelico SMBC frosting, and an 8" orange cake with Grand Marnier simple syrup, orange curd and orange SMBC filling. Snowpeople, clouds and trees are chocolate transfers. The dove on top was the company's logo. TFL!

Thank you everyone for your sweet comments. The chocolate chip expresso (freckled mocha) cake and filling recipes are from the Whimsical Bakehouse book. It was a tiny bit dense for me, but maybe it was operational error? The orange cake was a real home run, incredible, from The Cake Book by Tish Boyle. I've seen both books at our library. Thanks to everyone here for suggesting frangelico (hazlenut liqueur) for the SMBC! <


Whoa, thank you so much. Tyty, beemarie, I have admired both your work for some time, and obviously admire the WBH folks so much too. "Even better?"? Shucks! Cheryl


Wow, thanks playingwithsugar, your stuff is amazing! The chocolate chip mocha cake was from the Whimsical Bakehouse. The cake was good but not fabulous.. a little too dense for me. The filling was great. The orange cake was absolutely lovely, a real homerun, from The Cake Book by Tish Boyle. Hope that helps, and again, thanks everyone for your comments. Cheryl
