Gorgeous, Glorious Cakes!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I saw this at Heavenly Chocolates when I went there for last month’s Chocolate Appreciation 101 workshop. This beautiful showpiece of a cake was done by a young baker of the management team’s acquaintance. It’s all made of fondant and, in practice, can be made edible from top to bottom. The price: a reasonable P 24,000.00 (approximately US$ 500.00) – it is edible all over, after all.

If I were to choose – in the unlikely event that I ever get hitched – I want the cake above. The layers within should be moist dark chocolate ones sandwiching a gooey blend of gianduia and ganache. Beauty and deliciousness in a single package; sheer perfection, if you ask me. 😉

Incidentally… My ebook of poems is finally on line and ready for your reading pleasure! Songs for My Wandering Muse is a compilation of poems I wrote from 2004 to 2008. This little tome of love-lornity can be read by clicking here. Constructive criticism appreciated, as always. 😀

  1. Moist chocolate cake layers filled with hazelnut paste and ganache is as you said sheer perfection.

    Incidentally I have in draft hazelnut spreads I made 4 months ago that I will be posting later.

  2. @ P24 grand each, they might as well be museum pieces for me 😀 — they look too good to eat any rate

  3. Beatiful! Wish Garandee and I had a wedding cake that was this fabulous. We only had 16 guests, so our cake was as big as that first layer from the top on the first photo. We couldn’t even finish it. hehe…
