Can anyone say...Chocolate!!!

Kevin and I went to a couples Chocolate tasting party out in Scottsdale with 4 other couples on Wednesday night!

We met with the culinary artist and confectioner Julia Baker!

Julia exclusively on luxury chocolates and custom cakes!

Here are a few of her amazing cake on display at her bakery!





The tasting started out at the Julia Baker Confections chocolate factory in Scottsdale, Arizona which party includes hors d’oeuvres, and chocolate tasting with the chocolate education of a lifetime, followed by desserts.


Check out this cute but OH so delicious chocolates!

This is a replica of a wedding cake she made for a PGA Pro Golfer which ended up being the most expensive wedding cake sold in the US which sold for $50,000!

More cakes!


Kevin and I tasting roasted coco beans...yeah I don't recommend it!



Her sweet creations have given her notoriety as the "Chocolatier to the Stars" among the many celebrities she has made chocolates and cakes for Bono & U2, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston and Brittney Spears! Just to name a few!




These were the most amazing chocolate mousse I have ever had!

This was a passion fruit cake to die for!



My all time favorite desert chocolate lava cake with ice cream!

Again all this chocolate she imports from Europe and makes herself...it doesn't get any better than this!
