Decadent Chocolate Cakes's Full Profile
A Note from Alice Medrich, Instructor of Decadent Chocolate Cakes:My name is Alice Medrich. I am an author, a pastry chef, and a teacher. My career started with a single bite of a homemade chocolate truffle in Paris in 1973. I opened my own chocolate dessert shop in 1976 in California, and was recognized by The New York Times for creative leadership in those early days of the gourmet food revolution. I've been a featured chef on the Food Network and PBS, and I've taught cooking classes across the country. Since selling my company, I've written eight cookbooks and won three cookbook-of the-year awards. I am so excited to be a Craftsy instructor so I can share my love of chocolate and my expertise with this extraordinary ingredient.What You Will Learn in Decadent Chocolate Cakes: How to melt and handle chocolate How to mix and fold How to glaze and marble How to create a bouquet of chocolate fans How to bake three show-stopping cakes!Desserts You Will Make in Decadent Chocolate Cakes: The Queen of Sheba Cake, laced with almonds and rum The Ultimate Chocolate Birthday Cake, with whipped ganache filling and a dressy finish Chocolate Raspberry Ruffle Cake, which has thin layers of chocolate sponge cake filled with both chocolate and vanilla creme fraiche, as well as fresh raspberries; wrapped in a sheet of pure chocolate and topped with a bouquet of chocolate fans* Bonus: a whimsical chocolate centerpiece that is almost too beautiful to eat
