This is a birthday cake that I made for my SIL’s sister – the Special ‘K’ Rose Cake!! I wanted it to be feminine with the rose buttercream, but also a little different and funky – so added the cachous, sprinkles, edible glitter, and the Hershey’s Kisses to add a bit of an edge, and so it was different from the standard rose buttercream cakes!!
1. Chocolate Cake:
A few days beforehand, I made 1 x batch of the Delicious Chocolate Cake (Easy) from the Recipe Community. It makes a big batch, double of what I needed for the ‘K’ but it was good to have back up! For the ‘K’ I used Wiltshire Bake-A-Number Cake Pan (which you can also use to make letters).
When the cake cooled, I then wrapped the individual cakes in 2 x plastic wrap and 2 x foil, and put them in the freezer.
2. Buttercream Icing:
Just before assembling the cake, I made a double batch of my Perfect Buttercream Icing. Half I left white, and the other half I coloured with Wilton Gel Food Colouring – Teal colour.
