Everyone said it was rediculous that I make my own birthday cake but I wanted to make a cake that I wanted. I am always thinking what someone else would like but I wanted something I would like... and I love this cake. Its 3-tier (8"+6"+4") Vanilla cake with Milk Chocolate ganashe. Butter creamed then covered in white fondant. The top and bottom tier were then covered with strips of colored fondant and a violet scallop top with golden yellow drapes. The middle tier I left white and created brown vines and mini fantasy roses. I would have added leaves but I simply ran out of time and I dont think it takes away from the cake. On the top of the top tier I added larger fantasy roses and leaves. I couldent even cut the top tier cause it was just too pretty, its still sitting in my fridge.
