They’re for birthdays!
Hi there everyone! So this weekend we celebrated two birthdays in my family, my Aunt Michelle and Uncle Art! We had my family over and it was an all-around get-together of family, fun, friends, good food, and of course, good dessert. Earlier in the week my mom said to me, “Laura, the family’s coming Saturday for Aunt Michelle and Uncle Art’s birthday. You’re going to bake a cake, right?” My response: “Uh, mom, duh.” Me, bake a cake? What else do I do?! So, I set out to do something simple and delicious that I knew my family would love: Chocolate fudge cake, filled with my chocolate buttercream fudge frosting and finished with my scrumptious buttercream frosting. Yum. But I wanted to make it more than delicious, I wanted to make it look as special as it tasted! So, I decided to make a flower/rose cake. The result…
Voila! I was pretty happy with how it turned out! Sure, some of my flowers are a little abstract, but flowers aren’t perfect okay!
I did purple for my aunt and blue for my uncle.
I threw in some tiny sugar pearls I had laying around as well. I thought they added a nice little touch and they had a great sweet crunch when you ate the cake!

This cake is so easy to make, delicious and fun! So yes, it may be January, but this cake brought some fun into the winter! I mean, today practically feels like spring anyway, so why not?! Bake something that’s both pretty, and pretty scrumptious 🙂
