Chocolate and Flowers

My daughter’s teacher celebrated her birthday last month, coinciding with the class’ Halloween activities. While Halloween is not celebrated in school with a party, teacher’s birthdays are. ;) Much to the kids’ delight, they got away with Halloween cupcakes (because it’s the teacher’s birthday!).  I made my daughter’s teacher a simple birthday cake.  I wanted her to be able to take something home and enjoy with her family.

It was a terribly busy week for me and a Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake decorated with fondant flowers and leaves was all I had time for.  Nevertheless, it was a cake that was lovingly made.

I piped kisses on the top and bottom borders of the cake.  Chocolate, flowers and kisses…how can one go wrong? ;)

On the center of the cake were the teacher’s initials, dusted with pink pearl dust, like the flowers on the cake.  I didn’t want the cake to look like the kids’  name plates so I decided to use just the teacher’s initials.  Pink and green, are her favorite colros, by the way.

It was a wonderful birthday celebration.  Ms. LM was obviously overwhelmed.  She more than deserved all the love and appreciation she was showered with that day.  I just love birthdays…and amazing teachers!
