MOMMY'S LOVE

TURQUOISE, PINK & GOLD

Turquoise, the color I am falling in love with.

Not as immature as Neon.
Not as vibrant as Green.
Not as bold as Blue.

It’s a show-off, yet is blunt.
Seclusive yet versatile.
Seems hyper like a child,
As if will get spilled everywhere,
But is graceful at the same time.

 

A small thing in life, that makes me happy.

PRETTY IN PINK CUPCAKES

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

MOMMY'S LOVE in the GANTRISCH NEWSPAPER

Creativity that tastes good...

Gantrisch Zeitung: Rhonda Dorsey-Moser.jpg

What an honor it was for me to be asked to be featured in an article in the Gantrisch Newspaper with Mommy's Love including photos of me and some of my creations. It was penned by the very congenial and competent journalist, Salome Guida, with whom I share the same wedding day and being vegan. Have a read to see what makes Mommy's Love tick and feel free to contact me to make your sweet dreams come true, in edible form, that is...

 

Feeling heartfelt gratitude and blessed,

It was my pleasure to design and create this two-tiered cake for a lovely lady celebrating her 40th birthday. It was so relaxing and meditative to pipe different succulents in varying shades of green buttercream and adding gold accents.

 

The Birthday Girl was surprised with the cake as a gift from a dear friend. Moved to tears she was in awe of the surprise, the design and the taste. When she called me during her celebration to extend her appreciation, I sang her a personal rendition of the Happy Birthday song.

 

We made each other’s day. I am so very grateful to have such magic moments in life by touching others with my creations.

 

I like this cactus quote portraying the beauty and staying power of this amazing plant:

“I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget.”

MOMMY'S LOVE wishes

HAPPY EASTER with

EDIBLE FLOWERS

I love flowers and created these flower themed goodies, pastel and vibrant to catch the eye as well as please the palate.

 

During the lockdown, creating them shed beauty on what’s an ugly situation for us all, that I hope soon will come to an end.

 

Meanwhile I’m enjoying spending lots of time with my family. Although homeschooling my daughter was a real challenge, I was very proud of her and the regular progress she made. Despite her being reluctant at times to accept Mommy as Teacher, we managed to have a silver lining amidst the clouds.

 

Erin Hanson’s quote paints a lovely picture...and hit the nail on the head of my sentiments exactly as follows:


"She sprouted love like flowers, grew a garden in her mind, and even on the darkest days, from her smile the sun still shined." 

Happy Easter Everyone!

CAN'T BAKE FOR

2 SPRING EXHIBITIONS

I was very excited to create wonderful and yummy Mommy's Love Easter and Springtime Treats for two exhibitions: namely the Kunsthandwerk Exhibition in  Münchenbuchsee and süss the Sweets Fair in Köniz.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately Münchenbuchsee was cancelled and the süss Fair had to be postponed until October 24 and 25, 2020.

I'd planned an assortment of cakes, cupcakes and cookies full of flavor and lots of playful fantasy that never got a chance to be realized.

MOMMY'S LOVE creates GENDER REVEAL PARTY TREATS

Gender Reveal Party – Is it a girl or is it a boy?

The Baby Shower, which is tradition in the USA, has long since established itself here in Europe. Now there is a new trend: the "Gender Reveal Party". The name "Gender Reveal Party" says it all. At a baby party, everyone finds out the gender of the baby. Watch the video and discover the delightfully revealing creations of Mommy's Love. OH BABY!

MOMMY'S LOVE LOVES BIRTHDAY CAKE - TORTA REGALE

I fell head-over-heels in love with gold painted cakes and accents as I created this two-tier stately birthday cake I decided to dub "Torta Regale" (regal cake). The gift-giver said it was both beautiful and delicious. That made my day! I feel more golden deliciousness is on the way...because I think birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake. Don't you?

Pre-Holiday cheer was again spread at the second Advent Bazaar in the Park Cafe Elfenau on November 26th. Mommy's Love was glad to host and welcome sixteen diversely skilled vendors  presenting their crafts to the interested visitors who weathered the snow to be there. The atmosphere was lovely: Delicious food & drinks were on offer from Carol Meile, Pantea Amiet of P3 decorated with great style, a Gospel Flash Mob from my choir project "Rhonda Dorsey's Gospel Experience" pleasantly surprised the visitors and I performed three sets with my trio. Mommy's Love presented an array of holiday treats pleasing to the eye as well as palate. Time really flies when you're having fun. When it was over it seemed to have only just begun. Can't wait till next year's event on November 25th, 2018. See you there!

   MOMMY'S LOVE  -  CHOCOLATE LOVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How interesting, lovely and delicious it was to spend an evening creating chocolatey goodness at a Praline Course by miniSchoggi in Berne on June 1st. Take a look at the video to see the variety of flavors in my praline and truffle creations. The world of Chocolate is an amazing one and I'm glad to have been able to take a closer look at and try my hand at the wonderful art of making chocolates.

If you could try one, which one would you choose?

 

  • Bittersweet Chocolate Champagne

  • Bittersweet Crispy-Chocolate Champagne

  • Bittersweet Chocolate Almond-Apple-Cinnamon

  • Milk Chocolate with Bittersweet Chocolate-Orange-Chilli

  • Milk Chocolate Pistachio-Vanilla-Raspberry

  • Milk Chocolate Caramel 

  • Milk Chocolate Hazelnut

 

I had them all:-)

Chocolatey yours,

Rhonda

Mommy's Love created this Custom-made Soccer Cake for a great day of fun and games among friends with a yummy reward-time at the end of play-time.

This Moist Chocolate Cake  with Chocolate Italian Meringue Buttercream, Semi-sweet Chocolate Ganache and Custom Made Topper was quite a fun challenge.

 

I was pleased with the outcome and very happy to present it to the gracious host of the party who served it to her guests as a surprise reward well earned after an afternoon of energetic ball playing.

Can't wait to make my next sports themed cake.

HOW SWEET IT WAS!...

MOMMY'S LOVE at "süss", the first Sweets Fair in Berne on April 1st & 2nd, 2017! Over 2000 visitors came and 40 stands showed a great variety of craftsmanship and artistry in sweets. See the flashback video of the Mommy's Love stand above.

The recipe for the Mommy's Love Funny Bunny Cookie Pops was featured on the report of the local TV channel TeleBärn.

 

What a lovely weekend it was, thanks to the organizer Karin Trüssel-Abplanalp, the süss team, the many enthusiastic visitors and last but not least, the skilled and creative exhibitors.

Wishing you an enjoyable Easter holiday!

FRUITY FEBRUARY

WEDDING CAKE

TASTING

I had the great pleasure of hosting my first Wedding Cake Tasting for a very lovely couple. The couple was so excited, that they arrived 20 minutes early to taste what they hoped would be their dream cake to enjoy and to serve their guests on their very special day in July.

I prepared three cake compositions, incorporating inspiration from Italian cuisine, for them to choose from for their Venice themed ceremony.

Would it be cake number 1:

A Prosecco Cake filled with Mango Confit and Mango-White Chocolate Ganache?

Would it be cake number 2:

A Vanilla Cake filled with Dark Chocolate Ganache, Passionfruit Confit and Passionfruit-Vanilla  Buttercream?

Or would it be cake number 3:

A Cornflour Lemon Cake filled with Strawberry Confit, fresh Strawberries and Vanilla-Bean Buttercream?

Aaaand the winner is, or better said, the winners are Cake 2 and Cake 3. The gracious couple was very keen on these two flavors and couldn't choose between them, so they chose to have them both.

I'm very much looking forward to creating the dream wedding cake for this dreamy couple.

This birthday cake was ordered  to celebrate little Rafael's second birthday. He's fond of giraffes, so I created my signature XL Chocolate Cookie Billboard Topper with a giraffe enjoying his pacifier, which the birthday boy is also fond of, according to his Mom. The giraffe and name plate are both printed with edible ink. The   chocolate  cake is  frosted as well as filled with aromatic orange Italian meringue buttercream. The foilage is piped buttercream. And the finishing touch is a border of yummy Maltesers.

XL COOKIE BILLBOARD TOPPER

I heard there was a little scuffle about who would get to eat the pacifier, the coveted...I wonder who the lucky one was.

BAKES FOR

CHRISTMAS CHEER

My holiday baking was kicked off at the Advent Bazaar in the Parkcafé Elfenau, which Mommy’s Love hosted with a group of friends. Various vendors presented lots of creative handmade crafts and delicious homemade delicacies for all the senses. Mommy's Love baked goodies, like festive cakes, cupcakes & cookies, were clad in their holiday best for the palate's pleasure.

Thereafter I filled several orders and created some new designs as gifts for customers, my family and friends throughout December.

 

My daughter even got her hands in and helped bake too. She made some pretty nice original designs of her own (see the gallery above) and we had fun getting stuck into the dough. Can’t wait until next season.

The combination of chocolate and orange flavored buttercream was perfect! You have certainly exceeded my expectations. I’ll definitely be ordering again! Thank you for a delicious work of art!"

SWEETS FOR

MY SWEET DAUGHTER

This Mommy's Love News Gallery is chock full of all the goodies I baked and decorated for my sweet daughter's fifth birthday in October. She's a  fan  of all things chocolate, pink, blue and My Little Pony.

 

So I had lots to be creative with, to play with and to juggle around on the five times she was celebrated.  That  rendered  two chocolate
