Fancy Cake...OOO La La!!

Week 3 of my cake decorating class and our instructor said we'd be making a 'fussy' cake. I thought for sure I wasn't going to like it, but I was wrong! We made a double layer round cake and I filled mine with chocolate dobash, which is similar to chocolate pudding but it doesn't make the cake all soggy. Lots and lots of fun tube work on this one, I actually really enjoyed doing all the detail work.







Lattice work, flowers, borders, ruffles, more borders, more flowers, hearts and leaves!! This one was fun. I brought it to work and it was gone in about 10 minutes. The filling was great, too. Next week...cupcakes!!
