Rose Cake

IMG_0155

To my wonderful husband,

Please forgive me for putting roses all over your Birthday cake tonight (they were a sloppy afterthought).  I know men don’t “do roses”, but I am sure once you taste the delicious Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream, all will be forgiven!

Happy Birthday babe.

I will love you forever and always,
Leslie

P.S Hmmm, I think I did it to you last year too with the ruffle cake. My bad!

** Dear readers..to achieve this look use a 1m tip. I used this frosting recipe and folded in 9 oz. milk chocolate that was melted and cooled. It took me bout 1 minute for pipe the roses on the cake…I was in a massive rush. However if you take your time while piping, it would have a much cleaner look.

      Amber,
      Wow, hers sure looks a lot cleaner than mine.
      No, I didn’t use any one persons tutorial. This cake technique seems to be floating all over the web. Its a pretty self
      explanatory. Just pipe and swirl with a 1m tip.

    If that is messy I would hate to see what 1 minute of doing that looked like with me doing it lol. It would be disastrous! Happy birthday to your hubby:)

    I kind of love the “messy” roses…they have so much character and look sort of rustic. It’s really pretty!

    Those aren’t roses, they are swirls of love! It’s stunning and I’ll bet it tastes as good as it looks. You’re like a cake fairy making everyone happy and feeling special with your beautiful cakes. It’s a very loving thing you do for others.
