Beautiful Cake with Roses

Beautiful, Colorful & Yummyful !!!

Roses especially made with buttercream is on another level.

That’s how I would like to describe this cake. This cake was made as birthday gift for a very dear friend and the cake has come out as beautiful as her soul and friendship is.

The cake is simple chocolate cake with 2 layers, chocolate ganache in between the layers. My friend doesnt like much sugar in her goodies. So, I made the cake with just crumb coat.

The top however is different story. The buttercream frosting is used on the top and Chocolate Ganache is used for simple yet effective design.

If you like, check out the chocolate ganache recipe which doesnt require heavy cream but only 3 ingredients – Butter, milk & choc chips.

The recipe I am about to give is the absolute best for the buttercream frosting for a cake or piping the flowers like I did. It uses butter, powdered sugar and milk. Thats all. Very stable and absolutely works for all things decorating.

For the roses, I used single Wilton piping tip #104. There are many many online videos that shows how to pipe them and I recommend watching them and practicing like a lot – if you want your roses to be perfect.

You can always store this in freezer for up to 3 months and 1 week in refrigerator. When ready to reuse, simply bring it to room temperature and whip it with a whisk of hand mixer or stand mixer and its ready to be used.

    1. Aw, Thank you Caz. I never even baked a cookie or cake until I had kids. I started when I am 30. Now, I took interest to make cakes but also make healthy food as part of our diet. I am sure you have your own talents which I cant even think of. Love to see you here.
