Architectural and Show-Stopping
Do you like to make a statement? This signature dessert style can be created with clean lines and architectural shapes.
- Bake cakes in square or triangular shapes.
- Stack cake layers off center, then melt chocolate into a thin sheet and break cooled chocolate into shards to adorn your creation.
- Make roll-and-cut (rather than drop) cookies to keep perfect shapes.
- Glaze cookies in single colors or use melted chocolate to make dots and lines in geometric shapes.
In general, keep colors to a minimum. Dark browns and whites work well together. If you go with color, stick with a monochromatic palette.
