Pasadena’s Birthday Cake in Preparation – A must see!


Come and see and be able to film/photograph student chefs working under the supervision of their instructors as they painstakingly sculpt and form the many elements that will go into the five-foot tall visual/culinary extravaganza.  The final product will weigh in at approximately 300 pounds.  This spectacular culinary creation will display Pasadena history in sugar, cake,  icing and fondant, from the City’s agricultural beginnings (an orange grove), to its landmarks (Rose Bowl, Colorado St. Bridge, Arroyo Seco Parkway/Pasadena Freeway), celebrations (Rose Parade, Doo Dah Parade), and even celebrities (the Little Old Lady from Pasadena!), and much more. 

The official cake cutting with Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard and other dignitaries will take place beginning at 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 11 at the Happy Birthday Pasadena festivities on the grounds of Pasadena Museum of History and Avery Dennison.  The main cake will be on display following the cutting ceremony for the public to view and photograph.  So that we can enjoy the beauty of this cake and eat it, too, Le Cordon Bleu’s chefs will create massive sheet cakes in the winning flavor (Tuxedo: White Cake, Chocolate Cake, White Chocolate Mousse and Fudge filling, whipped Vanilla Chantilly Cream and Chocolate Ganache) to serve to the public attending the festivities on June 11.

 When: Saturday, June 4, 2011, 9:30 am to 12:00 noon

Where: Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, 561 E. Green St., Pasadena 91101 (in the old bistro location)

  3. I in addition to my pals appeared to be checking out the great advice found on your website while all of the sudden I had a horrible feeling I had not thanked the web blog owner for those strategies. Those guys were definitely so excited to see them and already have pretty much been using these things. Many thanks for really being considerably helpful and for using this form of good tips most people are really wanting to know about. My very own honest regret for not saying thanks to earlier.
