Bryce (10.21.09)

Bryce is enjoying one of our mini cupcakes, which are perfect baby size by the way!  His flavor of choice was a combination of lemon cake and yummy raspberry frosting, mmmm.  It was reported to me that he smashed then ate, great technique Bryce!

Notice how he’s trying to open wide enough to get the whole cupcake in his mouth, hahah.  Too stinking cute for words!  Thanks to his grandmother Laura Miller for providing this fun photo.

Newest Flavor Sensation!

Just this weekend, I tried a new flavor for an open house.  It was a HUGE hit!  So I’m adding it to our list of gourmet flavors alongside the Banana Pudding Cake and our version of the Strawberry Shortcake. 

It was aptly named by a friend, it is called "Chocolate Amaretto Crunch"!   Sounds yummy right?!  Here’s what it contains – our already deliciously moist chocolate cake, two layers of amaretto mousse (almond), a layer of chocolate ganache with toffee bits all covered in our creamy vanilla buttercream.  I  know you say this combination sounds a bit complicated but believe me, the flavors are great together.  Who doesn’t looove chocolate and nuts together?.  Reminds you a bit of a Hershey’s Almond Bar or a Symphony Bar, anyone remember those?

Do you have a favorite candy or other dessert that you’d like to see made into a cake?  I’m always working on new recipes and combinations.  Drop me a note if  you have any ideas!

Keep your eyes open for new gourmet flavors as well as our special holiday menu, coming SOON!!
