I made this for my daughter’s birthday and we both wanted me to try a fault line cake. Hope you enjoy.
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!
Beer Mug Cake
Client (Co-worker) wanted a "Beer Can Cake" for her dad. She knew I was a cake decorator, but never seen what kind of cakes I create. I told her I was going to make a Beer Can Cake for her, but it might be a little different than what she was expecting. She said what I as a cake decorator love to hear ... "go ahead, make me whatever kind of cake you'd like." Her and her husband loved it, and were speechless! Her father was overjoyed with his cake! She said the cake does not look real and that it is not like anything she ever imagined when she said she wanted a Beer Can Cake. (There is a man laying "under" the beer with his mouth open drinking it, and a man used a ladder to climb up the mug to "get in" the beer. (I love, love, love to see/hear people's reaction when they see their cakes for the first time. We did it again Grandma! Thank you dear God for guiding my hand.)
Torta De Fresas
Torta de Fresas or Strawberry cake, a classic of my childhood. Every bakery in town will have these on the shelves. My hometown was one of the very few cities in Venezuela where you can find fresh strawberries, as we were located in the mountains, nearby a rural area were strawberries were produced. A luxury back those days. The layers are syrup soaked sponge cake with pastry cream and homemade strawberry jam. The frosting is torched Italian Meringue. Topped with fresh strawberries varnished with gelatin glaze. Today is Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate with red, nothing better than red strawberries from our garden.
Dianna's Betty Boop Cake
I actually made this for a lady who worked on TV cake challenges! I've got nerve! lol She moved near me & we became friendlier so I said "I'll make you a birthday cake!". I wasn't sure if her friends would make one but if they do, she will gladly accept!
