Gourmet Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Shavings

22 Jun

This specialty chocolate cake was ordered for a birthday boy here in Kelowna by is family that lives out of town. As a surprise it was delivered to his workplace together with a birthday card and balloon.

It was a chocolate fudge cake with bavarian cream filling and chocolate buttercream. It is decorated with dark chocolate rolls and white chocolate shavings. The piped chocolate buttercream shell border as well as the rosettes are highlighted with golden sugar pearls.

Not for all orders am I given a certain theme. And while I have no problem designing a cake with a female design (the flower options are endless) it is not quite as easy for a male cake. I find that designs incorporating the pure color of chocolate is one of the best ways for a simpler male birthday cake.

A similar theme was also used in this cake.
