Cake Delivery from San Francisco Baking Institute

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. 
 Rachel's macarons
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.
