Cake Decorating: Birthday Cake (Buttercream Roses & Piped Chocolate)



I was asked to make a cake for some fellow employees' birthdays. I may have over-done the decorations...the cake turned out a bit feminine—Mother's Day-ish, even—but, they got what they paid for. If you notice a bit of roughness around Birthday, it's because, on my first attempt, I wrote Happy Bithday. Don't judge, I have an excuse—someone called right when my chocolate had come to working temperature, and instead of accepting my inability to multitask, I decided to go ahead with the spelling, while on the phone. Fortunately, chocolate becomes stiff when cool, so I just removed the letters with a paring knife and tried again.

Happy Birthday Dan & Hannah!

  1. Haha - looks beautiful to me! I do the same sort of thing all the time, though... try to write something while I'm talking to someone, and then I end up writing what I'm saying or something else entirely... :P
    At least it was an easy mistake to fix. :)
