Chef Christine Dahl, Christine Dahl Pastries, makes amazing cakes. What fantasies she spins from eggs, flour, sugar, butter and colors. The wedding season is in full swing and Chef Dahl creates up to eight of these masterpieces every week, no two being the same.
Not just a pretty face, these cakes have flavor. Crafted from butter creams, fresh fruit curds, bittersweet chocolate mousses and a bounty of fresh fruits, these creations are a joy to eat. As the consummate artist, Chef Christine personally installs each cake and arranges the floral decorations with the eye of an artist. My favorite is devil's food cake, chocolate ganache and raspberries with a white veil of fondat icing. Chef Dahl can be reached at 805 569-5889
