Caramel Mud Birthday Cake

Gran's BirthdayToday is my mother in laws birthday so I made a caramel mud cake for her.  Time was limited so I went for ganache covered cake rather than fondant.  A 20cm round caramel mud cake with a touch of ginger, covered with white chocolate ganache and wrapped with a marbelled white and milk chocolate collar.  I topped the cake with a chocolate Happy Birthday plaque and hand modelled roses.  The cake was enjoyed by the family. Happy Birthday Jo! xx

RoseLast night I continued with flower modelling, this time trying out the rose.  A have read through a few different tutorials with each giving slightly different instructions.  I used the one which was best for me.  I have an 80th Birthday cake coming up in March and have been considering using roses and butterflies.  The customer has asked for a pink and silver theme with any type of decorations so I’ve sketched out a design and thought I’d give it a practice run.

After a couple of hours of colouring, rolling, shaping & modelling, I had produced two roses and a little rose bud which I was quite happy with.  It’s a time consuming process but is extremely worth it!

I’ve also put in this post, a couple of pictures of the practice birthday cake, which I think I will change a little.  I am going to make some butterflies myself rather than use uneatable ones and think I will pipe some royal icing rose buds around the bottom of the cake rather than use ribbon.  I will post pictures of the finished product of this cake when it is made in March.
