Wow! That's a really beautiful cake! Thanks for posting the recipes - the cake sounds divine, I'll have to try making one sometime... Wish I could make all of the pretty cherry blossoms like you did!   Grin

For everyone who doubts that they could make a cake that looks like this one, I want to assure you that you can. It was really simple with a piping bag and tips. The tree was made from melted milk chocolate that I piped on with a round tip. The flowers were just some of the raspberry mousse piped on with a star shaped tip. All you have to do is squeeze a little of the mousse out of this shaped tip and it comes out in a flower shape. It was really simple. I just did more of those flowers around the base of the cake.

Thanks for all of the comments! Smiley
I hope you all make this cake. It was so good.

Any links to the recipe? I'd love to try it!

The brownie recipe can be found here:

I used this chocolate mousse recipe:

I used this for ganache:

I don't remember what recipe I used for the raspberry mousse. It was something simple using a raspberry puree and cream.
But I HIGHLY reccomend all of the recipes I have listed here. They are fantastic. I think I will make the brownies tonight. Thanks for the comments!

This cake was amazing because it was both beautiful and delicious.
The cake consisted of a layer of brownie (I always use the Good Eats brownie recipe), a layer of chocolate mousse (another Good Eats recipe), a layer of brownie again and a layer of raspberry mousse. The whole cake was then frosted in chocolate ganache. It was decorated with raspberry mousse and chocolate.
I wish I could eat this cake again.

The cake!

Another shot.....


Thanks for looking.  Smiley
10  COOKING / Dessert / Gingerbread House on: August 31, 2007 07:45:29 AM
AsheLeopard's post reminded me of the gingerbread house I made with a friend last winter. It was not as professional looking as AsheLeopard's, but I was still really proud of the end result.

We first designed the house with posterboard and then set out making the gingerbread. We used jolly ranchers and life savers for the windows. We then piped on the royal icing details. I also put a strand of Christmas lights inside the house so that the windows looked like they lit up. The only problem with the whole project was that I live in humid Florida, so the windows soon began to weep (run down the whole house) and the gingerbread got really soft in only a few days.

Here is the front of the house

Side of the house

And finally, the back of the house

Thanks for looking!
