I am an amateur baker who loves to dabble in cake design. This one was a last minute text yesterday for a chocolate truffle cake with red and gold roses for a 21st birthday party plus six cupcakes. To pick up tomorrow! Eeek – I cannot say no (and don’t want to if I can help it) – so off I went to buy my ingredients after a day at work and from 6pm until midnight I baked, filled, ganache, piped and painted this beauty into existence. I am really proud and on bringing it into work today everyone was so lovely.
It is a chocolate truffle torte filled with chocolate vanilla buttercream, covered in dark chocolate ganache, then buttercream hand piped roses dyed red and once chilled, hand painted gold metallic paint.
