Chef Gale Gand begins by showing you how to make two jaw-dropping layer cakes: a rich Irish coffee cake topped with chocolate curls, and a decadent toasted coconut cake adorned with crystallized petals.
Lemon Meringue Cake (30:53)

Blueberry-Strawberry Frangipane Tart (25:24)
Up your pastry game as you learn how to transform classic pâte brisée dough into a blueberry-strawberry frangipane tart. And, find out how to add gold leaf for an extra-special finish.
Orange-Infused Chocolate Truffles (26:44)
Both rustic and refined, Gale’s orange-infused chocolate truffles include crème fraîche for an extra pop of flavor. Gale shows you how to coat your truffles, then shares ideas for a range of finishes.
Cuccidati Cookies (23:43)
Be the star of your next cookie swap with Italian filled cookies! In this lesson, Gale shares the secrets to making cuccidati, traditional Sicilian fig-stuffed cookies.
Bourbon Mousse in a Rolled Chocolate Shell (24:39)
Wrap things up by learning to make one of Gale’s favorite recipes: bourbon-chocolate mousse in a rolled chocolate shell. Watch as she combines airy, boozy mousse with bittersweet chocolate, milk, and white chocolate to create a harmonious blend of flavor.
Gale Gand is the pastry chef and partner of Chicago’s Spritz Burger, and a partner in the Michelin one-star restaurant Tru. She served as host of Food Network’s long-running show “Sweet Dreams” and is also the author of eight cookbooks, including “Butter Sugar Flour Eggs” and “Short and Sweet.”
