Recent Pastry Chef Creations

Just thought you all might enjoy seeing the temptations that I face on a weekly basis. This is what came home this week. She kindly took it out of the white box and set it on the kitchen counter. Now very FORTUNATELY, I do not posess a craving for sweets. If I did...all of you would have been watching a weight gain in progess during the last few months of my life.

Always, there is "the taste." Then we continue "the giveaway, "to all of our many new found friends. Chocolate friends out there...what do you think of this picture?

This is a decorative creation, made with Marzipan. The basket and the fruit are her first attempt at food art, used in decorating cakes, and other areas where real looking fruit, flowers, or whatever, is needed. I think it is well done for the first time.

Two weeks ago, this chocolate delicasy came home. The artfully designed chocolate creations on top, added a unique touch to this chocolate torte. Once again, this is something I've never attempted to add to any of my chocolate desserts. Do you???
Our daughter is becoming quite popular at her dad's office, where they are more than happy to help us deal with the trail of desserts that we find coming home from pastry chef school. Next week she tells me, will be the layered carrot that may be a problem for me, beings it is my favorite cake!

Did I understand you to say that you give those chocolate desserts to friends after 'the taste'? What does one do to make your friend list? =) I will need to wait for my heavenly body to not have a craving for sweets - namely chocolate. I'm hoping the delight of calories remains in heaven - just NO calories. =) What beautiful food. Surely the Lord smiles.

This is the right place to come for a little inspiration. What beautiful desserts! I'd have more trouble passing by a carrot cake than a chocolate one as well.
