Heart & Stroke Fund raiser and birthday

Next up this weekend was a cake ordered by Domenic, owner of one of our favourite restaurants here in Brampton, Antica Osteria. Last month Mel & Phil held Juliana's Christening luncheon at the restaurant and Domenic loved the cake we made for Juliana's Christening, the Anne Geddes theme.  We offered him and his wife a slice of cake and in turn he ordered a cake for a function he is holding today.  It's a charity luncheon and silent auction to raise money for the heart & stroke foundation and it happens to be his wife's birthday. He asked if we could make her a birthday cake but also keep the theme of the heart & stroke since he would be serving it as dessert after the luncheon. He is expecting approx 100 people who had purchased tickets to attend.  He also asked if we could make up about 120 cookies for his cookie & pastry platters.  We decided on sugar cookies in the shape of, what else, a heart. We then drizzled some with dark choc and some with white choc and whole heartily donated the cookies for the event.  I delivered the cake and cookies this morning and Domenic was thrilled.

The bottom tier is a 16x16" double layered vanilla cake with vanilla mousse and fresh strawberries. The heart tier is our fabulous Guinness choc cake with a Bailey's cream cheese filling.  The roses are made from gum paste and the leaves and branches are made from fondant/tylose mix with cakes bordered in fondant pearls.

Happy Birthday Silvana!
Many happy returns!

Let's not forget about our cookies.  We wish Domenic all the best and success for his fund raiser today.
