Every Diva needs a cake

Seeing as my daughter Paige is a cake & cupcake baker/decorator... I needed to pull out my A-game today for her birthday cake.  I'm going to be generous and give myself a B- (smile).  I had fun doing it, but the execution was messy to say the least.  You may have seen these rosette cakes on Pinterest, or in a You Tube how-to video, where they take about a minute and a half to do a whole cake?  Well, it actually does go pretty quickly, but my icing started getting a bit too warm (white chocolate buttercream!) and I literally had icing up to my elbows, and had to refridgerate it several times.  Anyway, if you stand back about 5 feet it looks quite impressive... just don't sneak up close to see my shaky roses!

Well, I've done a fair bit of cake decorating in my time, and non-professional to non-professional: You should be pretty darn proud of that cake!! It is beautiful!! It is awfully hard when the icing starts to get warm. Really good save there!!!

This is STUNNING....so stunning in fact, while I can bake a mean cake and make some fabulous icing.....I never ever have once had a thought I would ever take this icing technique on!
You did a wonderful job...it is really beautiful!

Definitely an A! Beautiful job Karen. Soft icing can be a pain to work with, but it tastes soooo good:)
