Alaska Silk Pie Co. :: Seattle Food Photographer

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking a sneak peek into the inner-workings of a wonderful bakery in Sodo/Georgetown, called Alaska Silk Pie Co.  They were building the wedding cake for a wedding I was to shoot a few days later, and the couple thought it might be fun for me to capture some behind the scenes images of their cake in progress. That was all well and good, but what ended up grabbing my attention more were the other special treats being turned around in the kitchen!  Little chocolate pyramids, and miniature chocolate-porter cakes - yes please!

Now, for those of you unfamiliar with Alaska Silk Pies (as I was until just a few weeks ago), Phyllis, the owner, has a very special/secret recipe when it comes to how she creates these decadent works of art.  The texture can only be described as a creamier/lighter style of cheese cake.  Very rich, and almost truffle like.  As far as I can tell, she is the only person who knows just what goes into her infamous treats.

The wedding cake had two different flavors, chocolate and key lime.

And now about those other little treats...

Gluing chocolate onto chocolate WITH chocolate!?!...I am in favor.

Alaska Silk Pie Co. -  seriously, you need to try these desserts!

I highly recommend the chocolate!  It was heavenly!
