Here is the third (and final) cake I made last weekend – whew, that was a lot of cake!
This cake was a special one, since it was for the combined birthdays of my wonderful godparents (love you guys!). However, I only managed to get a few quick snaps of it, since my ravenous family was waiting behind me, forks in hand (okay, we’d just finished a huge Easter dinner, so they weren’t THAT ravenous, but they still really wanted cake). 🙂 So, my commitment to better photos lagged a bit on this one, but it was tasty, so I hope you’ll forgive me (and I actually got to eat this one – most of my cakes go to other people these days!).
This cake is also special because that’s not buttercream – that’s my white chocolate mousse! My family’s favourite is my Black & White cake (dark chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse). The mousse is much softer than buttercream, though, so I was unsure if it would hold up to the rosette piping – seems it actually turned out quite well! Woohoo! Finished with a peach-coloured gumpaste rose and rosebud.
