Rachie's Red Rose Cake

Rachie's Red Rose Cake on Cake Central

This was actually a birthday cake, but it looks like a wedding cake. That's what she wanted... This was my very first cake ever! My first to be torted, filled, frosted, covered in fondant, stacked, and decorated. I literally stayed up all night the day before it was due. Since it was my first, I had no idea of what time line I should be using. But it was worth it, and after that sleepless night, equally sleepless day and up again the next night for the party, I was completely hooked on making cakes

Thank you so much for all the nice comments! I was so tired by the time I got to the scroll work that I don't think I did as good of a job as I could have. Also I was trying to pipe the srolls with tiny dots, but the frosting was getting warm in my hand. I should have used royal icing, but I didn't know that then! :oops:


This is a beautiful cake. You did a great job. Coincidentally I am planning to make this almost exact cake in 2 weeks. I was originally going to do solid burgandy but decided to go white with burg. accents. Thanks for posting so I have an actual picture instead of just seeing it in my mind. :D
