CAKES & PASTRIES
This cake once beat the record for the quickest disappearance from the table! Airy chocolate biscuit with almond flour, a filler of sour cherries and whipped cream is a combination that makes the cake light and is liked the same by kids and adults.
This is a very soft and aromatic cake. It contains 6 layers, soaked with sour cream or butter cream with condensed milk. It is loved the same by kids and adults.

There is a lot of debate about which version of Napoleon cake is classic. Every family makes their own unique version of this cake. I can offer three versions of this cake:
1. With butter cream with condensed milk (the taste of childhood, the cake stays crispy thanks to butter cream).
2. With “Chantilly” cream (combination of custard and whipped cream) this is my favorite version because the fluffy cream soaks into the crispy layers, making them softer as well.
3. With custard cream. It makes the cake softer and makes the layers stick together.
All chocolate lovers doubtlessly prefer a more classic version of this cake. It contains three layers of chocolate biscuit with a thin layer of apricot or plum jam and some fluffy chocolate cream and is topped with chocolate glaze. There is never too much chocolate!
Spring Kiev Cake
(My personal variation of Kiev cake) Pistachio desserts are increasing in popularity, so in the layers of meringue I added ground pistachios, and some pistachio paste in the butter cream “Charlotte”. Pistachio cream makes a good combination with berries such as raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry.
Strawberry and Coconut Cake

Mousse Jelly Cake
Whether you are inviting guests to your house or you a big fan of jelly, this fascinating and somewhat healthy cake is exactly what you need.

Night Paris Mousse Cake
This dessert is best suited for adult lovers. This cake lies on flourless chocolate biscuit coated with crispy, dry praline made of almond. There is an interesting nuance to this cake; jelly made from apple and caramel with addition of whisky. This element adds fascination to this cake, but if this cake is not only planned for adults, you can swap the whisky for apple juice. The most sophisticated element of this cake is mousse made from white chocolate with tonka beans. It is hard to express the flavor and aroma of tonka beans is words. Some people catch an almond like flavor while others catch the scent of vanilla. Once my dear confectioner tried to describe the scent saying, “This smell reminds me of expensive boutiques!” It may be true, but you absoloutly must try it! This cake is decorated with thin white chocolate velour or clear glaze.

There is a very interesting flavor from blackberry or currant. A topping of clear glaze gives this cake beauty and elegance.

This cake is topped with chocolate velour. If you wish, you can swap the velour for mirror glaze.
