The Cake Artist Cafe puts out some impressive and delicious desserts every day. But if you think they’re satisfied with baking up the same treats day after day then you haven’t met Ligia. Ligia is the owner of The Cake Artist Cafe and she is constantly looking for ways to bring new and exciting creations to her establishment. Ligia was originally known for creating cake masterpieces for any occasion and while that’s still what most people think of when they walk by her store, she is working on expanding her offerings. To that end, Ligia attended a 4 day class that dealt specifically in desserts and macaroons.
The class was held at the PreGel Professional Training Center, a company that specializes in flavors and ingredients for desserts. The class was hands on and students had the chance to make a number of desserts. The desserts they created included Tiramisu, Chocolate Mousse with Creme Brulee, Panna Cotta, Homemade Marshmallows, and Strawberry Shortcake. The macaroons class focused on flavor combinations including one of Ligia’s favorites, Chocolate Passion Fruit Gananche.
Ligia is planning to bring some of the desserts she tried out at the class into The Cake Artist Cafe. The Cake Artist Cafe celebrated its 3rd anniversary earlier this month and Ligia baked up a number of free samples, including Chocolate Mousse, Rice Pudding, and Chocolate Passion Fruit Macaroons. She hopes to add these desserts to their regular selection soon. In addition, the store will also be offering a greater variety of salads and sandwiches. The store offered up a flavored coffee for St. Patrick’s Day, which was extremely successful. Ligia plans to build on that success by offering up flavored iced coffee as the weather turns warmer. New cupcakes flavors are also on the horizon, in addition to the gluten-free and vegan varieties already offered.
The next few months are filled with celebrations – Mother’s Day, graduations, communions, Father’s Day…the list goes on. So if you’re looking for some showstopping desserts stop in to The Cake Artist Cafe and see what Ligia has baked up. Whether you want a custom cake, macaroons, cake pops, cupcakes or custard cups you can’t go wrong with any of the treats they offer.
