That Cost How Much!?

We’ve all been there, flipping through a magazine and then BAM!  You stumble across a section that describes how a celebrity just spent thousands of dollars for a donut.   We thought it might be fun to look at what it takes to make a million dollar dessert.  Would you eat a 24k gold ice cream? We don’t know what you would eat, but we’re pretty sure, we couldn’t eat clusters of diamonds!

Take a look below and see what all the fuss is about!

Whose Side Will You Be On?

According to International Dairy Foods Association, Vanilla Ice Cream has beat out Chocolate Ice Cream in their second annual survey of International Ice Cream Association (IICA) members. But that’s ice cream, what about cake?

A rick, creamy chocolate cake topped with a smooth chocolate frosting, garnished with chocolate shavings could easily be any chocolate lovers dream!

Now for the classic vanilla cake.  Fluffy, light and topped with a wonderful vanilla buttercream, garnished with white chocolate shavings and a raspberry or two.
