Caillou Cake

First attempt to make 3-tier cake, and also to make things a little more challenging, first attempt to make topsy-turvy cake. Only middle tier is actually tilted, but this was already enough for a very nervous drive to a party place.  Cakes are chocolate with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream (bottom), lemon  with coconut cream (middle) and vanilla with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries (top).

Chocolate Crocodiles Cake

Crocodiles Cake

Some kids like crocodiles, so the challenge was to make a birthday cake that features these not-so-beautiful creatures and still looks attractive to party guests that are not into crocodiles.  Inside it is a chocolate cake with Vanilla Italian Meringue buttercream. Outside it’s covered in chocolate fondant and a little puddle in the middle is actually blue-green  jello jiggler that would reveal it’s colors better if it was sitting on a lighter background. Crocs are molded chocolates.

These Chocolate Lego Cupcakes were a very exciting project, especially custom-made Lego pieces molded from colorful candy melts. There is a picture of Lego pieces below as well. Cupcakes were Double Chocolate Cake recipe, filled with Belgian Chocolate Ganache and iced with vanilla cream cheese buttercream. Very rich, very moist, very much enjoyed by both kids and grown-ups.

Shoes and chocolate are two most common indulgences that women admit. Combining two of them was double fun to make and (hopefully) to eat. It gave me a chance to try a chocolate mold that was waiting for it’s turn since I ordered it. Dark Belgian chocolate was easy enough to handle and it’s smooth texture created realistic and luxurious look and feel. Hopefully birthday girl who this chocolate shoe was intended for will take a picture of herself biting into the heel.

Great mold made a great cake! Finally got a chance to use this beautiful Christmas wreath mold. Cake itself is chocolate cake recipe based on Peggy Porschen’s book but with 20% less sugar and added French Fancy Chocolate Truffles for baked-in surprise. It looked quite elegant just dusted with powdered sugar, but to add some festive colors I decided to paint main elements with melted candies (red, green, yellow). It was different, colorful and I avoided using icing, which as turned out kids enjoyed better.
