Saturday Sweets! Rose Cake

Cake

Cake
This isn't nail polish related, obviously... but I have been sharing pics of my other hobby (cake decorating) once in a while on this blog and thought I'd share another.  This is a 6 inch chocolate cake with ganache filling.  This took lots of time making the stripes and the roses, but I was happy with the final product.  This was also covered with fondant.  I normally don't cover my cakes with fondant because lots of people don't like the taste.  I did find some yummy tasting fondant, however...it's called Satin Ice.  It tastes like vanilla marsh
mallows and can be ordered online.

The design of this cake was inspired by a Peggy Porschen cake.

Thanks for looking!
Have a great Saturday!

    1. No, I've thought about it but haven't done it. I bought a bunch of the Satin Ice and that works so well that I didn't want to mess with it. But yeah, I've heard it's yummy:)

  6. This is amazing! I am awed by the skill it takes to decorate cakes- I took a class a while back and loved it. But it's hard!

    1. This one did take a while. It's fun though. I usually turn on old Real Housewives of "whatever city" and watch those as I am working:)
