This is a Birthday Cake for one of my best client's. She requested Red Velvet Cake to serve 20 people and then told me that I could design her Birthday Cake ANY WAY I WANTED! Now that's a cake I can get REALLY excited about.
I decided to do a design in black, white, and red that was sharp and crisp. Because that's how I see her. The design on the side of the cake was painted freehand. The red roses are made from gumpaste, as are the rose petals, and the leaves. The black on the top of the cake is piped in buttercream.
Happy Birthday Francesca!
