Old-School Birthday Cake
My husband's coworker is one of my best clients. She has ordered a few cakes from me in the past few months. I love how busy she keeps me. It helps that she's nice, pleasant, and easy to work with! She asked me to make a double-chocolate layer cake (Hershey's recipe) topped with buttercream icing for her two dads' (father and father-in-law's) birthdays. She also asked me to top it with roses, which really aren't one of my specialities. I used some old-school styles that I learned in cake class: shell border, rope border, roses, and leaves. I don't think it came out too bad. The roses looked pretty decent and I loved the color scheme. Maybe old school birthday cakes will make a comeback after all.
