My roommate Nichole met Rachel, above, during a week long bread baking course at the San Francisco Baking Institute. Rachael was in the 18 week world-renowned baking program. She hails from a family run bakery in Anchorage, Alaska - Fire Island Rustic Bake Shop. Rachel was baking goodies 5 days a week while in the program and delivered multiple cakes to us on a regular occasion. It was like a reality show where we tried to eat as much as possible. All these cakes are made by Rachel, a professional baker, and were delivered to our home! Every week in the program they focus on a different area.
The cakes below are from Mouse Week.
Rachel at the bottom of our stairs, brining up three cakes!
It's like being a kid at your birthday when she opens the box to unveil some incredible dessert.
Chocolate Rum Mouse Cake
Cherry Liquor Chocolate Mouse Layer Cake
Pineapple Moose Cake - my favorite!
Rachael put in a real pineapple stem up top for the effect and caramelized the mallow topping. The inside looks like this:
Delicious sponge cake rolled around homemade pineapple jam with dried pineapples. Divine!
Cake delivery on our counter
This was incredible. Dense, not too sweet, powerful delicious chocolate.
The inside of a perfect raspberry macaron.
Her first shot at a wedding cake! And the flowers are edible. It's absolutely perfect.
Just dropping off a wedding cake in the middle of the week - NBD.
Gorgeous floral detail by Rachel....
Too pretty to eat.
