During the high winds of Hurricane Earl, we here at Gateaux Rose still needed to fulfill
our important cake orders - with or without power. Luckily, I was organized enough to mix and bake four batches of cake and two recipes of filling before the lights went out. The frostings were all mixed by hand (ow. my arms) and the assembly and decorating done by candlelight. Even in the dark,
we can pull together some pretty adorable cakery.
The Pinstripe and Birthday Bow Cake.
um... my birthday cake. with twig.
Notice that both cakes are done in black and cream colours - chosen for their high contrast and better visibility in the darkness... The twig blew through a crack in the window during the storm, and so I thought it was fitting a cake topper/ birthday memento.
And so ended another adventure at Gateaux Rose.
