Happy mother's day to all the hardworking Mommies out there!

Layers of almond Dacquoise and chocolate cake alternating with caramel Sabayon (an egg yolk based mousse). In other words, the best cake to let Mom know she's the best thing ever. 

I baked the additional Dacquoise into little rainbow pin wheels with whipped white chocolate ganache in the middle. It is absolute crunchy deliciousness.

She is more precious than rubies. Proverbs 3:15

Remembering a very special day from a year ago with an abundance of gratitude and prayers. Our daughter Sarah received her First Holy Communion a year ago and I got to design and make this very special cake for her. A cake filled and frosted with all our LOVE !

Here is an up-close photo captured by our talented friend Jecco Jose Irimpan, thank you !

For a gorgeous friend's 50th birthday. Her love of red and unfading beauty inspired this poppy cake.

You look brand new
Half a Century looks good on you
You're oozing flair, you're so debonaire
With your 50 years of savoir-faire

Erupt with Joy!

My little monkey turned 5 some months back!
And like most little boys his age, he's a huge fan of dinosaurs and volcanoes.

The most fun part about this cake is the smoke coming out of the volcano made using dry ice and warm water. The volcano is carved out of a 6" cake and rice krispy treats with a plastic cup at the top to hold the dry ice.

It was a lot of fun to watch the smoke waft down. you can have a lots of fun with the remaining dry ice at home. THere are a lot of crazy experiments you can do with it, but remember to ventilate your room. It is CO2 after all.

A #1 cake I made a while back for a little boy's First Birthday.

This was my first time making a shaped cake in all buttercream and I mistakenly assumed it would be a breeze. Boy, was I wrong. Sharp corners are the toughest things to get right on a cake and this one had sooooo many. But it came together in the end.
