My eleven year old granddaughter just decorated this cake for her parents wedding anniversary. The cakes (5,6",8, and 10) are single layers of dark chocolate. The frosting is buttercream. She wanted it a very light gray, but after she frosted it she thought it looked blue; therefore she went over every bit of it with a multitude of different tips to recover it all! She made up the complete design: the flowers to represent her mommys bouquet, the bow tie to represent her daddy, and the top hat to represent the decorations at the reception. Thank you so very much for looking.
