Wedding: More Cake Tasting at Ganache

by gigi on August 12, 2008

Jenkins and my wedding date is drawing closer and closer so it was time for us to make a visit to Ganache Patisserie.  We ended up picking Ganache and the intrepid Peter Fong to make our wedding cake because of all the places we went to, it offered the most interesting types of cakes and […]
