This was a delicious change from the chocolate birthday cakes the family usually requests. The cake is quite dense, similar to a pound cake with lots of vanilla and almond flavor. With white chocolate mascarpone icing and homemade cherry jam and white chocolate dipped Marchino Cherries on top it was full of flavor. Cake 3 […]
A beautiful chocolate mousse cake with strawberries. Tastes great and looks beautiful.
It’s that time of year again! I can’t seem to get away from the cake pops. I’ll spare you from the entire process since I have done them several times before (Brownie Cake Pops on Glo Sticks, Easter Egg Cake Balls, and Chocolate Cake Balls). These are different in only in the fact that I […]
