There are many memorable moments in life that are worth remembering, and then there are those that you just can't forget. Oftentimes, they are the first time you do something. Don't you remember the first time you rode a bike? The first school day? The first dance? The first test you failed? Either way, I got my first official cake order!! Although it wasn't the first time I made a cake for someone else; but, this was the first time I sat down with someone to discuss cake details they wanted - from flavors to designs and themes. Her hubby's birthday is just two days before mine. Of course I couldn't say no, so I moved a few things around and I made time.
As you can see, the girl requested a chocolate and strawberry theme, 3-layers, 9" round cake. She emphasized lots of chocolate shavings, not too sweet, and lots of strawberries with whipped cream. So, I opted for a combination of very dark chocolate and bittersweet chocolate.
