Big Macaron, German Coffee Cake, Tank, BMW Cake

My close friend Jennifer got accepted to nursing school and I wanted to congratulate her by making her this huge french macaron. She has always been a huge fan and supporter of my baking, not to mention a good friend also! =) Congratulations Jenn!! This french macaron is sandwiching some fresh raspberry, light raspberry cream, and chocolate drizzle. yuM!

This German Coffee Cake was requested by a return client who wanted to try something new. This cake tastes like the coffee cakes that I used to eat when I lived at Vienna, Austria. The butter cream was flavored with coffee liqueur and decorated with dark chocolate drizzle on top. Each rosette is topped with a chocolate-dipped coffee bean.

My good friend Linda's birthday was in March. For her birthday, I made a Tank because her nick name is actually "The Tank" haha. Under the fondant is made with red velvet cake layered with cream cheese icing... her favorite! =) To define the shape of the cake into a tank, I carved the cake with a serrated knife. Finally I covered the cake with fondant and the details were applied.

Hong had contacted me over Facebook and requested me to make her boyfriend a BMW birthday cake. It is a chocolate flavored cake, layered with ganache and fresh strawberries. The car was made with rice crispy treats and decorated with fondant.
