This page shows only Kazuya's Baked Delights for the month of March. There are some items which he made for us to eat at home and some items which he made for his work at the Alaska Coffee Roasting Company.  Sometimes he makes items for us here at home and then takes samples in to work and they ask him to make that same item for the shop - for example, the Matcha Cake in Rows 3 and 8!  That really makes both of us feel very good.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

  Here is a Chocolate Mille Crpe with Caramel Whipped Cream. Kazuya made this for us and took pieces in to work. Surprisingly, they have not yet asked him to make a Mille Crpe for the shop yet.

  Kazuya's boss at work raises Quail in his apartment and he gave Kazuya a dozen fresh Quail eggs. On the same day we happened to buy some fresh shrimp from a local man who sells fresh frozen shrimp right from a fishing boat that operates in Petersburg, Alaska. So, for an appetizer for supper we had fresh hard-boiled Quail eggs and fresh boiled shrimp. Yummy!

  Here are three shots - all from a different angle - of a Matcha (Japanese Green Tea Powder) Cake that Kazuya made for us. This is a four-layer Matcha Cake with Matcha Ganache & Matcha Buttercream. He took some pieces of this cake in to work and they had him make some huge ones for selling on St. Patrick's Day (See Rows 8 & 9)

  Here is one shot of a special order birthday cake that Kazuya made at work. They ask him to do the writing on all of the cakes which require writing.

  These three photos show a Matcha Mille Crpe - made of layers of Crpe. Between each layer is Matcha Pastry Cream and Whipped Cream with a hint of Kirschwasser. Of course Kazuya took pieces of this in to the shop for them to sample, but they have not yet asked him to make it for sale.

  Here are two shots of one of the Matcha Cakes which Kazuya made at work. The design on the top of the cake is in homage to an Irish film "The Wind that Shakes the Barley". This was for St. Patrick's Day.

  Here is a piece which is ready for sale. These pieces sold for $6.00 each. The Matcha (Japanese Green Tea Powder) is expensive, so this $6.00 price is $0.50 higher than the price of a normal piece of cake.

  After Kazuya took some of his Macaron to the shop, they adopted his recipe. They made Macaron previous to Kazuya working there, but they like Kazuya's recipe better than the recipe they used before. These are real clover leaves on the top, made for St. Patrick's Day. Of course a Shamrock is only a 3-leaf clover, but people did not seem to mind that some of these were 4-leaf clovers.

  Kazuya found these Blood Oranges in the store and bought them - he thought that they might be good for a cake flavoring, but the juice was too strong and a bit bitter, so he didn't use it, but the zest had a strong fragrance and was useful for the topping on this Orange Mille Crpe, mixed with the zest of some regular navel oranges.

  Here is another shot of the Orange Mille Crpe, then a shot of the cut pieces of it. He used a different recipe for the crepe itself this time so that he could make the crepe thinner and more delicate than before. He also added a bit of Grand Marnier to the filling between the layers. The third shot shows some clairs with fresh fruit and crme diplomat. He brought two of these home with him - they were totally decadent.
