Say It with Flowers: A Spring-Themed Birthday Cake

My bestie celebrated her birthday on Easter Sunday.  And for the third consecutive year, I made her a birthday cake.  The cake from two years ago, you can find HERE.  The one from last year, you can find HERE. This year, for the first time, I made her a fondant-covered cake.

I played it safe by going for a spring theme since the birthday cake will also double as an Easter cake. I think I made the right choice.  It’ spring and flowers are in bloom.  Besides, how can one go wrong with flowers? *wink* The cake looked lively and fun. You can’t even tell that I had to battle it out with Murphy’s Law almost the entire time I was decorating the cake.  I’ll spare you all the “gory” details.  Let’s just pretend everything was smooth sailing. Hee.

This was a Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake with Cocoa Mousse Filling. Chocolate heaven, I tell you!  I don’t know why I never thought of doing a chocolate mousse filling before.  It was quite a “learning experience” for me. The cocoa mousse that wasn’t used as cake filling ended up in 6  individual ramekins, 4 or 5 of which, my daughter ate. Hoo-hoo. What can I say, she takes after her chocoholic mommy! Oh, she didn’t eat them all in one sitting!

Murphy’s Law notwithstanding, I was pretty relaxed while I was making the flowers and leaves for the cake. I wish I made more flowers though.  Can you see the wood-grain effect on the fondant?  Please say you can! That was a lot of fun to do.

Overall, I am very pleased with how the cake turned out.  I love the colors and the flowers and how I was able to hide my mistakes, as if I used the cake-appropriate version of natural make up. ;) Hee hee. My bestie loved it, too.  She didn’t even want to cut the cake. But like I always say, half the fun is in cutting the cake. ;)

Happy BETday, sweetie!

Cheers, y’all! Mabuhay!
