After a huge, stupid mistake I had to start over with this chocolate w/Oreo buttercream filling cake only 24 hours before it was due! I was afraid I wouldn’t have time for the ganache to set, mix all the colors, etc.; fortunately it worked out. This was also my first attempt at shaping fondant accents. The topper is actually a candle. I did two layers of the “exploding cake” technique, one very small one around the topper, both finished with RI brush embroidery waves. The mom was VERY excited about this cake.
Many thanks to all the cakers who’ve done simiilar styles for all the inspiration. TFL!
