Rosette Mousse Cake (and contest reminder!)

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.

  1. This fabulous cake was a lovely treat for her godparent’s birthday. Jackie thought she didn’t like chocolate, until she tried Caralin’s black & white cake. We were able to celebrate their birthdays AND eat cake. What a great day!
