Let's talk about chocolate and fresh fruit...

YUM! It's just sooo good. The bitter from the chocolate, the sweet and tart from the fruit, breathy lightness from cake and fresh cream... It's just sooo good! Also, using unadulterated ingredients like chocolate and fruit lend a pure, natural quality to your event.

-oh berry coule folded into chocolate ganache dusted with cocoa powder, how I love thee...

-this is another take on the chocolate basket...piped to make it look like lace:

-warm ganache dripped over the edge...great for an event with chocolate or champagne fountains:
