Although my gratitude can often be unconventional and subtle, there is no shortage of it throughout the year. Today, however, it comes in the form of cake – ruffled and pearled.
I should note that this is my first tiered cake – YAY!! Both tiers are vanilla bean, filled and masked with white chocolate ganache. The base is two 6″ and the top tier, 4″. I used a rose cutter set that comes with six pieces/sizes – I placed the larger petals as the base row and used the next size down as I made my way up the base tier. For the pearls I used a pearl mould – the same one I used to create the pearls on this cake. The mould and instructions to make the brooch can be found here. I added some colour and shine with my new decorating addiction – edible dust.
By the time this post goes live, you would have already had your celebratory brunches, dinners etc. I hope that your day was filled with love, laughter and the company of loved ones.
Happy Mother’s Day!
