Wired And Veined Wafer Paper Leaves
I’ve always been in love with wafer paper cake decors. They are so light, dries fast and can virtually hang from any angle without fear of it denting any part of my cake. With all the beautiful wafer paper decors around, I wanted to add a little touch of “nature” to my wafer paper decors. VEINING!!!!! I’ve experimented with a lot of “wet” medium but in the end, it is still teeny tiny amount of water that makes it happen. All the “leaves” in this spray are all made of wafer paper, wired and veined to mimic how they appear in nature.
"the Locket Collection"
I love decorating cookies with fondant. They are so much more forgiving than cake. Last Christmas, I tried my hand on creating tiered cookies,..and I have to say I am hooked!!! So, just in time for Valentines day, I created this set of Valentine inspired cookies and aptly named the whole collection "The Locket Collection" as suggested by my 14 year old daughter. Individually, I named them "My Painted Heart, Dreamy Heart, Don't Leave Me Hanging Baby and Golden Hearts".
A trio of skulls I made using candy melts and Wilton's plastic skull mold. Decors are made of gumpaste, fondant and modeling chocolate. "Undas" is a holiday widely observed among Filipinos, which celebrates All Saints Day (Nov. 01) and All Souls Day (Nov. 02). Just like Christmas (Pasko) and Holy Week (Mahal na Araw), Undas brings the family together, with family members from distant places expected to come home.
*A cake I made for my sister-in-law's birthday. The cake itself is an extended tier mud cake, filled and frosted with whipped white chocolate ganache. The "paint" I used to edge the fondant ruffles was made using aztec gold luster dust and yellow gold luster dust dissolved in gold airbrush color. Thanks for the love :) xo-Rose
A simple cake for a friend who wanted “a black cake”. I added gold lace accent to break off the monotony and used red fondant for the skeletal cameo to add a little bit of drama. I named this cake “Risqué” because I was taking a big risk using all black fondant to cover the whole cake. Black is very elegant, but just like white, the slightest mistake can be catastrophic. Thank y’all for looking :)
A Graduation Cake I Made For A Young Lady Who Graduated From High School Back In April 2013 The Zebra Stripes On The Bottom Tier Was All F
A graduation cake I made for a young lady who graduated from high school back in April, 2013. The Zebra stripes on the bottom tier was all free hand cut Wilton black fondant that was rolled out very thinly. Both tiers are vanilla pound cake, filled and frosted with white chocolate ganache. The sugar buttons used on the cap and the second tier can all be found on my Etsy shop.
Golden White Couture Cookies
I made these cookies to celebrate my wedding anniversary to the man who patiently bear with me through all my caking highs and lows. I used gold (again) as part of the accent color to "hope" that we will be together past our golden wedding anniversary (mind you, we're not even on our 10th year yet so we still have a very long way to go). I love the pop of red on one of the cookies as I think it brought the design together. Ruffles and gold-two of my fave elements on a design, I couldn't be happier :) xo-Rose
Sharing with y’all this “Summery Blue” cake I created for my Madeleine’s 6th y.o. birthday which also happened to be my official 2nd year of caking. All decors are edible including the “flowery print” on the flower and bands. The print is by Dena and I bought this from Global Sugar Art. The bottom tier is a 6×6 inches round cake (my favorite cake size to construct). xo-Rose

The decors on the Blue Egg was all hand modeled (the leaves was pressed onto a veiner and hand cut) while the decors on the Green Egg was done using wild rose patchwork cutters. Happy Easter everyone :) xo-Rose
Filigree In Pink And Black
When the all important question of "can you make a pink cake that's not too girly" for a 13 years old pops up, this was the design I came up with. The second photo shows the essential elements I used to put this cake together. The sugar sheet and craft puncher can be purchased from Michael's and the candle holder was purchased from Hobby Lobby. I used two sugar sheets for a 6x6 inches round cake. Happy caking. xo-Rose
Purple Ruffles With Fondant Butterfly Accent Brooch
I was told that the ruffles on this cake looked "different" from the other ruffles I've made before.

"sweets For My Tweetheart" Valentine Truffle Cakes
Valentine Inspired Truffle Cakes usng my easy peasy "recipe" :) Here's the video tutorial on how I created these lovelies (I tried to upload the video on the tutorial section but it kept kicking me out so until I can figure out what's wrong, please feel free to copy and paste this link to your browser, sorry y'all)
My lovelies, may I present “Lady Emerald”, a concept I came up with last month/last year meant to pay tribute to this year’s Pantone color of the year-Emerald green. The top tier was covered in yellow fondant, then airbrushed in gold x two coats, I then used clean loofah to dab more gold paint on it once the airbrushing had dried off. I wanted the top tier to be more rustic. The gold paint I used is gold and bronze luster dust dissolved in gold airbrush color (the bronze luster dust adds more depth to the paint). It is accented by a “necklace” made from two of my handmade silicone molds and piped royal icing for the string on the top of top tier using #352 Wilton tip, then painted in golden bronze. The lace accent was made using a yellow fondant, then dry painted/dusted with gold highlighter dust. I took a small pinch of moss green fondant, rolled it into a tiny ball and pressed it into the center of the lace flower, then dusted that too with emerald green luster dust. The pendant brooch was done using the technique shown in this video tutorial: . I then dusted the center of the pendant brooch with emerald luster dust and painted the edge with my gold paint. The middle tier is covered in moss green fondant, then dusted with emerald green luster dust. I then used royal icing string work to decorate it then painted the string works in gold once it has dried (a feat that must have taken 10 years off my life, but luckily, I didn’t break any of the string works, woop woop, lol). I used a liner number 0 paint brush to do the painting. Here’s the link to the video tutorial on how I did the string works: . The top two tiers was bordered with a very simple piped royal icing using #3 Wilton tip. The bottom tier is 5 inches in height (I think it would have looked better if it was 6 inches in height as it would have given me more “drop” for the ruffles). It was again covered in moss green fondant, I then used a 98 mm round frill cutter to cut out a disk, used the bulbous tool to do the frilling then I cut out the middle portion using a 36 mm plain round cutter. I then cut the round frill in half and attached it in a slanted manner on the side of the cake leaving 1.5 inches free towards the top of the cake (The ruffles took forever, get your percolator out and prepare to drink lots and lots of coffee. My fingers was numb, ufff). I used a string pearl mold to finish off the bottom tier. Here’s a link to a video tutorial which will show you how the frilling is done for the bottom tier. . Thank y’all soooo much. xo-Rose
My Old Rose Valentine
These cupcake designs are a spin off to my “Old Rose Cookies Collection” and my way of redefining the cupcake tower with a touch of Couture Cakes by Rose. The string work on one of the designs is my first attempt at royal icing string work, a feat I would never have thought doing when I decorated my first cake. I also made a hand sculpted fascinator as a topper on one of the designs, my way of remembering all those wonderful years I spent living in England (many moon night ago, lol, one of the best times in my life). I hope y’all enjoy these loveys :) xo-Rose
The promise of Spring is finally just around the corner and what better ways to celebrate the birth of a beautiful season than ruffles and pearls in Spring colors with just a touch of vintage.

When I first started decorating cakes for families and friends as a hobby, I tinkered with cupcakes and thought it was the most wonderful thing to decorate. I can pick a theme and decorate them individually. It's like dressing up a triplet baby girls (but I don't have a triplet baby girls, lol). These lots was so much fun to do-ruffles, pearls and lace are my absolute favorites and to be able to use two of those on one sitting is like a boon.
