Something Special and Sweet!!!!

It is so hard to find a cake for a special occasion, especially if you want the golden combination of it looking incredible and tasing incredible.  I have gone through so many bakeries and many failed attempts at finding just the right one.  As my daughter’s High School graduation party was looming, I decided to do a local search.  Nora’s Ovenworks, in Harrison kept coming up.  I contacted Nora and she was fabulous.  I loved her look book and we decided on a two tier cake in the blue and grey Georgetown (my daughter’s college) colors with flowers (her name is Daisy), a pink bow (her senior class color) and her high school logo, the Georgetown logo and bulldog mascot.   The cake was chocolate with a cookies and cream filling….OMG!! It was amazing.  Some of our guests had 2 pieces and a few took a piece home for later!!!  I highly recommend Nora for any future celebration.  Here are some of her incredible creations.  Also, Nora gave me a copy of her prize Lemon Chiffon cake for me to share with you!!!  YUMMMMMMM…Bon Appetit!!!!

Here was our cake..the dripping flowers were an artistic spin Nora suggested…

Nora has much more than cakes….her shop is loaded with things you can take away….
