In the Mood for Love by May Lawrence

Sable biscuit celebration “cakes” has been the recent trend and I wanted to create one. So what better opportunity is there than Valentine’s Day to create a Heart Shape Sable Biscuit Cake? I created a recipe with orange blossom area and orange ganache, garnished with Swiss meringue and petite chocolate flowers. The heart also represents my passion for pastry cooking. The photo was shot in my home studio in natural light with the help of a reflector to create a little shadow. I used orange roses to represent the orange flavour of the filling.
