This page features most of the amazing confections which Kazuya baked during the month of November. Rows 8 and 9 show what he made for a huge Thanksgiving Party which we went to. There were around 25 people present and Kazuya's Swiss Rolls and Mini-Chocolate Cakes were the talk of every single person at the table when it came to desserts. It was amazing to hear what people were saying. I was so proud of my partner.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Kazuya's Baked Delights - October 31st through November 24th
  In this first row on this page you can see Kazuya's Cream Puffs and Eclairs. WOW!

  He also made some donut shaped cream puffs. So, these are not just dough, with the cream spread on them, they are hollow like creak puffs, cut open and filled with the cream. The third shot shows a Cream Puff and an Eclair on a plate. They were yummy.

  This is a banana and lingonberry tart. Sounds rather strange, but believe me, it was super delicious. If you've never had a single thing in your life made with lingonberries, then you owe yourself a special treat!

  Kazuya called these Lemon Curd Cakes, but that name certainly does not do them justice, not at all!

  This is a Butter-Cream Rose Cake. The purple roses were blueberry flavored, the pink ones were lingonberry flavored and the yellow ones were apricot flavored. We took this with us to a dinner which we were invited to and people could not get enough of it!

  The next two rows show what Kazuya made for the Thanksgiving Dinner at Twin Bears Camp which we were a part of. In this row you can see Swiss Rolls and Chocolate-mini Cakes! WOW! The Chocolate Cakes had Grand Marnier in them and the Swiss Rolls had Kirschwasser in them! These were the talk of that table full of people shown in Row 4 on Page 3 for about 10 - 15 minutes as people ate them!

  The first shot in this row shows a dish that you will probably not recognize - it is Lotus Root, cut thin and cooked in a way that I don't truly know. People love it, The greens are Yu-Choy and the name of this dish is Yu-Choy Sum. It was gone before it made it all the way around the table. The second and third photos show Squash and Curry Croquettes. Everybody was trying to guess what they contained besides Squash! When everything was finished Kazuya ended up with a nickname - "Chef".
