The snow is falling lightly on my window sill and It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas. Too bad it’s May.
The April showers didn’t seem to do much for May flowers. Calgary still feels icy cold to me. That’s okay though, because it’s a new month, which means new things are on their way. It might not be sun shine and daisies yet, but they will come soon.
Meanwhile it’s Dad’s birthday this weekend, which means another opportunity for cake! This year he asked for a pink cake, so I gave him the pretty princess treatment. Two layers of chocolate genoise, imbibed in a Choco-vanilla soak. This is all topped off with pink French buttercream, and a white chocolate flower.

Winter always seems so long and cold, but it’s not as bad when you have some one to cozy up to. With the passing of Christmas and valentines, high holidays at the chocolate shop are coming to an end, and I finally have time to share some of the things I’ve been up to. In my spare time when I’m not pouring my heart into making chocolates for the desperate men last minute shopping for their loved ones on valentines day, I’m scouring every value village in town for awesome kitchen finds. Its amazing how far 10$ can get you at the village. Below are some photos of the organic dipped strawberries I did at valentines and some beautiful hand roasted espresso bean Choco bark. Enjoy!
