Wow! This thread is like Christmas. So many wonderful ideas. I sound surprised only because for some reason, the forum software didn’t notify me that I had responses after the first one from Rozanne. Don’t know what’s up with that. I hadn’t unsubcribed myself.
Meanwhile I talked with the wife further, and she thought maybe a white chocolate bc would be nice with regular chocolate cake. I was to price things out and come up with a final set of choices for her on the filling and overall design. I kept the options simple and straightforward, since that seems to be thier taste. The white chocolate mousseline bc. Raspberry ganache for the filling, which I’ve never made and have wanted to try. Dark chocolate shavings on the sides. A simple border on top and she wants writing. Like I said, straightforward and (sigh) even a little boring. But with Rose’s recipes, it will taste good! Will let you know the outcome after I hear from her. Have to wait for her call, which has to be when he goes out since she’s trying to keep the party a secret.
Can’t wait to try some of those other combinations in future cakes! Yum!!! Thank you so much.
