I’ve learned to make ribbon roses. When I made this cake, I decided to make it colorful and to kind of represent my family in colors.
My oldest daughter loves pink. My second daughter is very fond of purple, but specifically violet. My husband favors blue and my favorite flower is a yellow rose. The green leaves are for my son who insists that no one else can like green because it is his favorite color!
Then with the addition of swirl drop flowers in the same colors, I thought it made a fun summery cake.
These are a few of my basic cakes. All of these are 9 inch rounds, made from scratch. You can go to the details of each of these cakes by clicking on their link.
Chocolate with chocolate filling and chocolate icing. This is one of the best chocolate cakes ever!
Chocolate with vanilla cream filling and fudgy icing. This is a very rich but delicious cake.
Strawberry with strawberry icing. This is my oldest daughter’s favorite. Super sweet, just like her!
White chocolate cake with raspberry filling and a white chocolate frosting. Surprisingly light.
Red velvet with peanut butter icing. This is my husband’s favorite cake. Very rich and creamy.
