White chocolate mud cake

cake1aMy sister Wendy loves purple.  When I made her this birthday cake, the first thing I envisioned was a giant bright purple sail on top of a purple cake.  However, the purple luster dust that I ordered online was more of a dark purple.  And the sail fell off the cake and broke in the car on the way to delivering the cake to her.  Next time I will secure the sail better! This cake is  5 layers; 3 layers of chocolate mud cake, 2 layers of white chocolate mud cake, with blackberry ganache filling, and frosted with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream.

Chocolate Orange Entremet


 For Christmas every year growing up, I would always get a chocolate orange from Santa in my stocking.  Did you ever get those? You know the kind where you can crack it open and get nice slices of chocolate oranges?
