Valentine's Birthday Cake

Valentine's Birthday Cake on Cake Central

This is a chocolate cake with two chocolate heart shaped cupcakes. All the frosting is butter cream. I made the vase out of colored white chocolate. I made the tea roses and forget me nots from gumpaste. I made rose leaves from fondant and butter cream. I made the ribbon, bow, gift tag, and lace hankey from fondant. I dusted the bow, tag, and pink roses with luster, petal, and pearl dust. I piped two types of white ribbon around the sides and bottom. This was for my mother-in-law who is such a special lady. She makes all the cakes in the family. It was her turn for her birthday which is on Valentine's Day! It was so much fun.
