Just to say thank you to everybody, who came yesterday to taste the trial wedding cake .
I hope that everyone enjoyed their afternoon with a slice or two ( or four 😮 )
Here are a few shots of making the 5 tier wedding cake. By the way, it took 3 days to make the sugar decorations and the bottom layer (only because I was trying to find the best way of doing it and it had to be redone)
The rest of the cake (4 tiers of different flavours) was done in 3 days.
No fondant or marzipan covering, the cakes are covered with thin layer of Swiss meringue buttercream of different flavour.
Here it is!
It’s been a while since my last post. It’s not because Galya’s kitchen was closed , in fact it was and is very much open.
The summer has gone and now we are not as busy at La Croix du Reh (our B&B) as we were then. But there is a lot going on in Galya’s kitchen.
They say that one of the biggest and most stressful events in a life is Wedding. Correct! I can confirm that and many people will agree. My daughter is getting married and the date is rapidly approaching.
And guess what? I have taken a responsibility for MAKING ( yes, making!) the wedding cake.
At first we might think that there is nothing unusual and there are many people nowadays making HOME MADE wedding cakes for their daughters, sons, nieces etc…
But how many people can say that they made a wedding cake for 150 people?
This is the reason why Galya’s kitchen was quiet for a while. I’ve been doing a lot of research and practising making cakes and decorations.
This coming Sunday the 30 of October there will be my first attempt to put together FULL SIZE 4 TIER CAKE for 150 people.
And anyone who wants to come and taste it is welcome !
(I know, I know, it’s a short notice. But running B&B is full of surprises such as last minute reservations, which can interrupt the preparations.)
Nevertheless, the date is set.
The Wedding cake tasting party is on :
Sunday the 30th of October
from 14.00 to 16.00 hrs.
See you there!
Oh, yes! Another cake! This time it’s my own recipe : simple in its separate layers, but sophisticated in how all the ingredients and layers work together. It’s like falling in love : with each bite there is an explosion of new textures and flavours, you want more and more, and when the plate is empty you have nice after-taste , feeling complete and happy to have it again tomorrow, then the day after and then the day after that and every day! 🙂
Our guests were asking for seconds: the best complement one could ever have!
I present :
THE CAKE “VALENTINE”
And the Star of the night is…
Here is another house recipe creation: White chocolate Smart Smarties Cake , that was served this evening for dessert at La Croix du Reh.
Our Dutch visitors absolutely loved it!
Thursday night we’ve had a birthday party for a very charming French family. And the cake was a really big hit!
One more very chocolaty chocolate cake!
And would you believe it, no oven needed!
eggless 6 layers cake, absolutely scrumptious!
Attention: lots of creme fraiche used!
Never mind creme faiche, it is d e l i c i o u s !
Finally Bon appetit!
This post is created a day later, as we had other priorities, like eating the Christmas dinner, calling and receiving the phone calls from friends and family and having a good time!
Merry Christmas everybody!
