Yes, I did take a digital, but I don't think it's possible to post it here. (I think Nicko is the only one who can do that!)

I just had to share with my cheftalk friends.

I prepared a special suprise party for my moms 75th birthday yesturday,and our own Momoreg prepared the cake and petit fours...

Well let me tell you that it was one of the most amazing cakes I or anyone else at the party had ever seen or tasted. It was a three layer chocolate sheet cake filled with wonderful chocolate mousse and then finished with a pearl white butter cream,basket weave around the sides and then a small "wild flower garden" placed ontop of a smaller cake set off to one side of the sheet cake. There had to be over 100 hand made edible flowers,all standing on wrapped green wire and it looked just like a minature flower garden.I can't believe the talent momoreg has,It was truely a great cake,and ofcourse the perfect bite size petit fours were so good.Thank you again Michele,and if anyone ever needs a special cake and are close by you must talk to michelle.

Dear Friends:

I have also seen photographs of Momoreg's cakes and they are true works of art!

After seeing a picture of a wedding cake that Momoreg created, I got this crazy idea about asking my wife to marry me again so that I can ask Momoreg to do our cake!

Man, I can't believe that menu. That must've been an outstanding party!!

The one that we couldn't get over was the veal with foie gras, artichokes, cippolinis, and lobster. What a wild combo...but I'll bet it turned out great!

Thanks Papa, you made me blush...

Let me know if you decide to marry your wife again! :D

Momoreg,
Actually Veal and Lobster go great together,As do Lobster and artichokes. So I put a spin on the whole concept and married all the componets together.Ofcourse the fresh truffles were just the "icing" on the cake. I will make that dish for you and Jordan when we get together.

Also,thanks Mezz and Kimmie for your kind words!! I am indeed lucky to have a Mom as great as mine :)

Hmmm, my Mother and Step-Father's twentieth is coming up in February. I think I know who I'll use for a menu consultant. Just wish I was close to momo or mb for a dessert!
