Tim Tam Cheese Cake

My latest creation... a Tim Tam cheesecake with layers of chocolate cake in between. Covered in chocolate ganche and decorated with white chocolate. This is my first attempt at a 'design' type cake and it has been fun coming up with a pattern...etc and the swirls were the most challanging part. This was made for my friend Gareth who helped me out with some car troubles. (really, i'd take any excuse to make a cake :P )

White Chocolate Berry Mousse Cake

I made this cake during the weekend for a friend's BBQ. I found a recipe for chocolate mousse and thought that making it into a cake would be a nice change. But I wanted something light and not too rich, so i decided on white chocolate and berries.




It's a great spring/summer time cake. The layers of butter cake in between made it a bit more solid and the white chocolate mousse is a nice and light alternative to icing or cream. The white chocolate was a bit sweet at first but the berries evened it out nicely.

The outside is coated with pieces of hazelnut chocolate crisps and the whole cake is topped off with chocolate coated strawberries.

Cookies Galore

I really enjoy cooking... I especially love making desserts. And recently, i've become addicted to cake decorating. Last weekend I had lots of time on my hands so I decided to try out my new cookie cutters. (I bought 100 of them for $10 from Aldi - bargain!) So after the baking, the fun begains (decorating!)... This is what happened :)




I had alot of fun icing these! They were all individually hand painted with a paintbrush. It was just like painting. Except you get to eat it when you've finished.

I realised after using them that some of the cookie cutters are way too small and i'll never end up using them. But for 10c per cookie cutter, i'm not complaining :)
