Because the roses alone took 6 hrs., and the friend didn't have a lot of money to pay for the cake, the poster chose to use a box mix by Betty Crocker for the cake itself (this being quicker and less expensive).
What the poster didn't know was that one of the guests at the party was a prominent restaurant owner/chef from Montreal (an educated palate???) and that he said that it was the best cake he'd ever eaten.
