Ring-O-Roses




My Mum turns 70 on Tuesday. Today we had a family BBQ to celebrate.

Handmade edible ribbon roses and pearls.

Chocolate fudge cake layered with ganache... thought I'd add an 'inside' shot for you to see :O)

Happy birthday Mum

Amanda said...

I stumbled across your blog through the CakeJournal, and just wanted to tell you what an amazing job you do on your cakes! Not just on the outside either, your fudge cake looks incredible on the inside too! My chocolate cake crumble and fall apart once cut, how did you make your so deliciously dense?

I love your work! I am also self taught and do this on the side, but your work is pristine, magnificent!

Pauline Soo said...

Simply lovely cake! Looks really yummy too. : D

The Cake Maker said...

Thanks!

Amanda, try a mud cake recipe. The are very moist and dense, keep well and slice nicely too. Paired with chocolate ganache you can't go wrong :)

I am not sure what country you are from but in NZ and OZ they are very popular.

Jenny Tan said...

That is just GORGEOUS!!!

This cake looks delicious and gorgeous. It looks so simple, but I imagine it is deceptively so.
