I am so excited to be able to share this cake with you!
It was a birthday cake for someone really special. Some of her favorite colors are purple and gray, so I used that as my inspiration.
I don’t know if you’re supposed to have a favorite cake, but this is definitely in the top 5.
I had so much fun playing with the frosting colors.
I used Wilton’s red-red, royal blue, and rose to make the shades of purple and blue. Moss green was used for the leaves. I also used a bit of black to get some grey.
You may notice that I pulled out a Russian piping tip for the purple flowers in the top left.
Then it was time for the fun part- the arranging!!
I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!
I used a small offset spatula to spackle some green on the sides.
I love how it turned out. I think it suited the cake well and put the emphasis on the flowers.
I just kept taking pictures of it.
Here’s another shot.
Ok, I think I’m done now. I just had so much fun with it!! It’s like gardening, but on a cake!
It was a homemade carrot cake with homemade cream cheese frosting.
What do you think of it?
