A friend, whose birthday falls on Valentine's Day, always throws herself an office birthday party for her and her co-workers. She mentioned she wanted a cake with yellow and red circles. I was a little confused and said, "You mean like a target?" She hesitantly said "yeah..... something like that."
I told her not to worry. I'd make her a cake that looked prettier than a target circle!
If you're a person who fights over the big buttercream roses on family birthday cakes, then you would have just loved this cake!
Instead of just flat stripes in a circle, I created circles of color using 30 big buttercream roses and about 15 smaller rosebuds.
In a world of over-the-top fondant cakes and push-the-material-in-a-mold decorating techniques, the art of making buttercream roses is in danger of becoming a lost art. I was thrilled to be able to showcase this edible art again!!
When I dropped it off to her, she almost cried at how pretty she thought it was! Which is the best compliment a caker can get!
