A Rose cake

Oh, you guys.... I am A.B.S.O.L.U.T.E.L.Y awful!
 Like really really really awful!
 I uh.....forgot the party for Tuesday.
 Yeah, the one that was supposed to be up no later than 5PM.
 You know, sometimes I really think that if my head wasn't attached to my shoulders, I would lose it~
 I will try really hard to be better... Love you guys...THANK YOU for putting up with me!

I wanted to share with you a "somethin'" that I made last week...
   Thursday we had our Relief Society birthday party. After planning it, we decided to have cupcakes and two cakes.  My friend Chels, and I made the cakes and then three other cute girlies made cupcakes. I wanted to do something pretty special.... so, where can I find awesome stuff? guessed it! 
Good ole' Pinterest.  Love me some Pinterest!

* Chels also happens to have a yummy food blog called Time for Supper  go check out her yumminess!

When I first saw the rose cake I fell in 
After visiting  i am baker  she convinced me that I could make this I gave it a try...and I think I did pretty good for my first time! 
 ( Ooh, and can I just tell you she has the best The Perfect Crusting Buttercream!)

I used 2 - 8" round cake pans. 
I always trace them onto parchment paper,cut the circles out,place them in the bottom of the pans, then  spray with cooking spray AND then coat them with powdered sugar (instead of flour) 

The cake was just a yellow cake mix jazzed up..
Follow directions EXCEPT:
-Instead of water use 1 C. Heavy Cream or Milk
-Add 1 C. Sour Cream also...It is super rich...but oh so yummy!

Lookie how it turned out!

The neatest thing was if the "rose" didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it to...I could just scrape it off and then start again!  (yep, I did do that a few times..WINK)

I  found the FREE Birthday Printables at Anna and Blue Paperie.  I used a 2" scallop punch and attached them to some colored embroidery floss and then used skewers to hold up the cute banner.  I wanted to do a cute little picture frame too. 
 I searched and found A FREE  Happy Birthday card at sew.craft.create
 I LOVE how they matched so well!  I took a frame that I had spray painted white, and  some cute material that I had on hand, that matched...BONUS, made some rosettes and added some pearl buttons to the center of them, hot glued them to the frame and WALAH! 

SOME CUTENESS...if I do say so myself!

a couple more pictures..

What do you think?  
Gosh, what would I do without Pinterest, and all these wonderful ladies that are so inspiring?!



  1. You did a great job! Love the banner too!

    I experimented with a rosette cake this past St. Patty's Day. I think it came out pretty good for a first try.

  2. It was a darling cake! You're also such a sweet person. Thanks for the plug :0)

  3. This is adorable. Love the effect. And the printables really takes it right over the edge of cuteness!!

  4. Amazing job! It's one of my life goals to make one of those cakes. I haven't been brave enough to try yet.

  5. I have wanted to try one of these rose cakes too. I do a lot of fondant, but I'm not as comfortable with frosting. I just need to give it a go. I love the results.

  6. What a beautiful cake!!! Love the rose effect! Beautiful!

  7. Wow. That is seriously THE coolest cake I have ever seen. I am not kidding. Wow.
    It's about to be my first pin on Pinterest!

  8. This is lovely I love the little picture frame too.
