Last night I got to spend a lovely evening at the home of some lovely friends, celebrating the engagement of their son. I also was hired to make some cake, so, I did. This one is a triple chocolate ganache:

And this one is Italian Cream Cake:

The flowers are from Jennifer at Fisher Branch Farm (find her at the City Market on Charlotte Street on Saturdays), and from my sweet friend Kari who brought over the little tea roses on the top of the chocolate cake. Both ladies saved my behind. Also, Michelle Bevans was there, from Asheville Face Painting doing some INCREDIBLE face painting:

Yeah, that’s my pirate.
Thanks friends! what a great night.
