Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!  May you have a wonderful holiday season filled with family, friends, laughter and an abundance of sweet treats.
Modern Christmas Cake

Since it is Christmas, I thought I’d share a cake design of my own today.  This three tiered grey and red design features light grey buttercream with fondant dots, a modern Christmas tree and is topped with an oversize red bow.  Inside, each layer was a different flavor to include French Vanilla cake with Raspberry Puree, Dark Chocolate cake with Espresso Buttercream and Chocolate Ganache, and finally my favorite, Chocolate Chip cake with Vanilla Buttercream.  Delish!

Wishing you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
