>Baking Goddess Gia’s Christmas Cakes are coming to town


Christmas 2009

She came into our lives a year back.

A friendship which grew over her first large batch of Christmas cakes, rum balls and a dark chocolate cake which made Kainaz call her ‘Baking Goddess Gia’ and describe it as ‘the cake which spoilt her for all other cakes’. Then there was the Nutella birthday cake baked straight from the heart. A gooey chocolate cake with almonds. A tantalising red meat dinner followed by a seductive chocolate mousse with chocolate chips pressing the hot buttons. And then a vanilla tea cake to go with coffee. A dense chocolate loaf in between whose praise I only heard off from K and the two friends we had gifted it to.

Last heard Gia Fernandes was surrounded by rum and fruits as she was putting this year’s batch of Christmas cakes to bed. Call her at 9967023174 or mail her at gia.fernandes@gmail.com if rum soaked Christmas cakes talk to you.

I would recommend her chocolate cakes too…why should Christmas last only for a day?

Here are some of her creations which have earlier featured on Finely Chopped:

If these turn you on then wait till you bite into the chocolate chips nestling inside
