Chocolate Rose Birthday Cake

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I made a Chocolate Fudge Cake which I made into two layers. I filled it with a Choc-Fudge buttercream, and coated the outside with same. I made a milk chocolate buttercream and piped a rose swirl starting from the bottom to the top with the top layer overlapping the side and resting about 3/4 inches over the top of the cake for stability. Refrigerated until buttercream set. I finished it off with a store bought happy birthday candle which isn't shown in the pic :P What are you most proud of? The fact it didn't taste overwhelmingly of the buttercream. The flavour was spot on with a decent ratio of cake flavour to the buttercream to compliment nicely. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find the right closed star tip piping nozzle thats right for your level of patience and control. I would have gone smaller normally, but I wanted a more dramatic look of the rose swirls as opposed to a mass amount of them.
