This was done for a lady who turned 50 and did not want a “number” on her cake… We did add the number on the cupcakes that went with this cake (picture on your right when they were in the box). She wanted earthy tones… I had shown her flowers in pink shades and these (in a peach creamy shade) and she chose these.

Both cakes (square and round) are 4-layers chocolate cake with layers of Valrhona Guanaja chocolate ganache and one layer of a puree of caramelized tangerine peel. The customer sent a me a message earlier to tell me it was more than succulent (that makes me happy).

Xclusive, thanks a lot… and yes, apparently, it did taste really good. I like the combination of dark chocolate/citrus.

I think I may have started to drool at the words Valrhona Guanaja chocolate…such a pretty cake

Jo, thanks for your kind words and yes, I know you love Valrhona as much as I do… You know what, it DOES make a big difference what kind of chocolate you use and I’ve used many and this one is by far the best!! And thanks too for having this in your Favs :-)
