Fantasy Baking Project

Creating flavor-bombs for occasions that are destined to be remembered in family folklore and photos, really thrills me. So when I received a text from a friend asking me to create a dessert menu/buffet for her son’s pre-wedding Shabbat celebration, that simply read:  “Do whatever u want. trust u” I was giddy with the possibilities.
