"Like gelato, but in cake form"...this was a sweet comment from a Groom at recent wedding cake tasting. Some Grooms may feel overwhelmed with the wedding planning process but never when it comes to trying cakes! I grew up with European style pastries and gelatos, and this is certainly one of my favorite cake combinations: Almond cake paired with Pistachio Mousseline with Pistachio Crunch!
One year ago, my husband, teenage kids, my business, and I moved to Philadelphia. It was a leap of faith, and a commitment to team effort. We have all adapted well, and put our best foot forward. All progress takes place outside the comfort zone. It was specially sweet to find in my mailbox today a copy of @modluxweddingsphl. Having this magazine in my hands means so much. We are SO happy to be here Philly. Thank you for treating us well!
Because I believe that our purpose in life is nothing but "The pursuit of Happiness".
This is a cake I created for the union of two amazing people a few years back. It was inspired in a stained glass piece they had commissioned to a local artist, which captured their love for traveling. My humble (and very delicious) rendition was made by hand painting chocolate panels, and adorning the cake with custom made pulled sugar flowers. Each facade of this square shaped cake represented a special trip. Depicted were iconic images of Israel, France, Russia, and my client's hometown, Cincinnati.
What a privilege it is to have a small role in my clients most memorable day! Congratulations once again Dan & Dr, Dan, I wish you all the happiness in the world!
The most adorable baby unicorn cake to celebrate the arrival of baby Evvie. A thin layer of chocolate covered the most delicious layers of one of my favorite combinations: Almond Apricot with Almond Crunch🦄🍰🦄🍰
All good things come in pairs!
