Like I Said, Not Just Desserts

I went to Jorg's today. As I mentioned before, he does some catering, but not a lot. So today, I made and wrapped 4 types of sandwiches: ham and cheese, ham and turkey, cucumber and cream cheese, and chicken salad.

We did prepare some dessert-like items today as well. There were chocolate disks with walnuts, almonds, pistachios, dried pineapple, dried cherry, and raisins on it. Today was also a major pick up day for cakes (since Jorgs is closed on Sunday and Monday). There were some extremely cool cakes going out today, such as the circus cake and the basketball cake. I don't have pictures for either of them sadly.

Truthfully, today I did not take any pictures, so I'll use some of the ones I took on other days.

To continue on with the cake theme, during the week before all the cakes are decorated and after they are cooked, they are put out on this table. Usually the cakes are baked, and then put in the fridge or freezer until they are decorated so that they are easier to decorate and frost and everything else like that. As you can see, there are many different sizes and kinds of cake. All of them look really yummy.

I've also mentioned that Jorg has a retail portion of the shop. He has a display case that contains so many different kinds of goodies. Some of them are extras from special orders, but others are made for the shop. To the right are novelty cookies, shaped like different animals and then air-brushed. There are lobsters, dolphins, crabs, fish, flamingos, and probably some others that I'm forgetting about.

He also does little tarts, cupcakes, and jelly rolls. Sometimes he does pastries. Lots of good stuff that you should all try at some point.

    This is looking pretty fun...independent learning and indpendent eating and, better yet, eating sweets. Very cool! I pour over your pictures, I have to admit it all looks like such intense food that I'm not sure how tempted I would be with these goodies... looks more like an art gallery!
