Week #30 – Chocolate madness!

August 5, 2012 4:18 pm Published by

My friends Jenny and Ryan wanted a birthday cake for their joint birthday celebration. The problem? They don’t really like icing, specifically buttercream.  So what I decided to do was make a white chocolate ganache frosting that really spread like buttercream.  They also love purple so I went ahead and air brushed the cake blue and purple to get this pretty hand painted look. Because it’s damn near impossible to get the icing completely smooth, I  kept it lose to give it a more rough look.  I actually like how that turned out.

I finished it off with 2 gumpaste roses, one that I air brushed purple.

The cake inside was vanilla butter cake with a raspberry jam.  I didn’t try it but they told me it was delicious!
