Pretty impressed with myself

Hi All,

Friday is my husband's birthday and every year I do a cake for him. This year I've decided to go elegant and traditional. I've never successfully done buttercream roses before and I thought it was time to learn.

These are my first attempts - I'm happy enough with them that I think I can do them for the cake.

The centre one is made out of modelling chocolate, but my husband decided that he didn't like that so the icing roses it is.

I'll post photos later of the hopefully very successful cake.

I ran an in-store bakery for 16 yrs (in my previous life)and was often the cake decorator. So I can tell you from experience that you have done an awesome job on the roses. Have fun with the cake!

Very beautiful job on the roses Sandy! I especially love the one in the center. SO pretty. I wish I had you around here to decorate my cakes. I find it quite hard to do!
