Basket of flowers this Spring


Here is basket of spring white flowers with buttercream roses. I made this cake last week for a newly discovered relative from my hubby’s side. She is his distant cousin and we realised this after a year since we met!!! She’s got two kids and a chocolate cake I thought would be an ideal gift to carry. I thought a bouquet of flowers will add to it’s

I wanted to try something different with my piping bags, hence the basket weave. I wish I had planned it a bit in advance could have rolled out a fondant handle for the basket but he-ho, the plastic piece did the needful.

It is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling. The roses(still practicing)are buttercream roses with green buttercream leaves. I like the after effects of baking, my house smells of the sweet aroma of vanilla, chocolate and butter ….love it.
