Valentine’s Day was over a week ago and it was a busy time. So busy that only now I find time to post what I created for that special occasion.
This Specialty Heart and Roses Cake was ordered by a returning customer from Germany. It was delivered to her Mom here in Kelowna as a Valentine’s present for family here.
It is a red velvet cake baked in a heart-shaped pan
with raspberry cream cheese icing covered in red fondant. Along the sides there is a red scroll pattern piped with royal icing.
The top is decorated with white whimsical fondant roses.
For friends and coworkers I baked these cupcakes and decorated them, fitting for the “heartiest” of all days, with heart-shaped candy and also heart-shaped glitter sprinkles.
Flavors included hazelnut double chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and raspberry cream cheese icing and red velvet with raspberry cream cheese icing.
And finally for my husband I created this hazelnut chocolate cake with with chocolate buttercream.
It is covered in white fondant with two red fondant hearts and heart-shaped glitter sprinkles on top. The hearts were brushed with ivory pearl dust.
On the sides there are heart shaped candies attached and the border is made from candy as well.
