For your next Wine Tasting...

 This Red Wine Chocolate Cake goes perfectly with a glass of red wine.
It is a light cake with a crisp top and a moist center, containing the perfect balance of chocolate and red wine.

Bite into these rich, melt-in-your-mouth, dark chocolate-brandy truffles,
with a crunchy coating of pecans, toasted coconut, Heath bars, or whatever you choose.
Wash it down with a nice red wine, and you will be in heaven!

Birthday Cake

This is a 2-tier chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and strawberry preserves between each layer.
It was iced with purple butter cream frosting on the top tier and white frosting with fondant zebra stripes on the bottom tier.
It was a pretty fun cake to make! I wish I could have eaten some......

Wedding Cake

I made my first wedding cake this past Friday and it turned out pretty well!
Each tier of the cake has two layers, with butter cream frosting and apricot jam between each layer. The top tier and bottom tier have piped butter cream roses, and the middle tier is iced with butter cream frosting as well, with fondant stripes and edible pearls. It was a success! A very tasty success.
