Super Chocolatey Goodness and a Cake Tasting

I made a cake for a bakery located nearby my place of employment this past weekend, because they make pies and the owner didn't want a pie, he wanted a cake...a chocolate cake.  The cake I made for him was triple chocolate fudge with chocolate mousse filling, chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache on top with chocolate roses.  I haven't talked to him yet, so I hoped he liked it.  The other thing we had this weekend was a cake tasting for a brides wedding cake we're doing in July.  The flavors she chose were apple cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, mocha and peanut butter chocolate chip.  We had a lot of fun, and ate a lot of cake.  Congratulations Janine and Ken, we can't wait to make your wedding cake!!

We made these cakes this past weekend for a 60th birthday and a 9th birthday.  The first cake for the 60 year old was Chocolate with strawberry filling and vanilla with strawberry filling.  The birthday girl loves to Salsa and she loves gardenias, so I made a sugar gardenia for the front of the cake and hand painted the faux-spanish design around the border.  The jewels are made from chocolate.  The second cake was chocolate with chocolate chunk cream filling and vanilla buttercream.  Happy Birthday!!
