Sweet Valentines - Blackberry Lemon Opera!
To honor the feast of St. Valentine and a twenty something years old love story with my beloved husband.... I made a treat, blackberry lemon opera. Layers of lemon syrup soaked joconde filled with white chocolate blackberry ganache and lemon French buttercream. The blackberries are from our summer harvest last year. Topped with blackberry glaze and fresh fruits. Decorated with a mixture of everything that was left on the bowls emptied in a piping bag! Happy Valentines for you all, stay safe and warm!
Confirmation Cake - Saint Benedict
A Confirmation cake for a young man that chose St. Benedict as his Confirmation Saint. The inside of the cake is lemon cake with lemony cream cheese icing. Decorated also with cream cheese frosting piping. The topper was hand made and tailor made for the occasion. The topper is entirely edible and made using fondant and pastillage. In the book is written "Ora et Labora", Latin for "Pray and Work," the motto of Saint Benedict. Sancte Pater Benedicte, Ora pro nobis!
Here Comes The Train!
Another birthday cake for my sweet little rascal. He is stuck in the train stage...Doesn't want to let it go. Soooo, mom made a cake for him with a chocolate train. Of course, the rascal that he is complained: "Mom, I wanted a birthday cake... not a birthday tart!" Oh... where is Herod when I need him! Anyway, tart or cake he loved the train and the realistic landscape. The tart is called San Diego, is was originally designed to be a petit four. Base of sweet tart dough, one layer of chocolate hazelnut paste and the top layer of pistachio almond paste. Very rich and fulfilling indeed. Decorated with hazelnut-chocolate paste tracks and borders, ground pistachios, cocoa powder and tart dough crumbs.
