Here’s a cake that I decorated for a 40th Wedding Anniversary.
My sister-in-law actually made the cake, recipe can be provided if interested. It was basically a chocolate cake, with chocolate buttercream filling, and a whipped chocolate icing. I have never worked with Whipped Icing before, but I know a lot of people tend to prefer it over the buttercream icing.
So I just iced the cake and added the decoration. The roses & leaves were made ahead of time with Royal Icing. I added a little white pearl dust to make them sparkle. All of the chocolate decorations are the whipped icing. The writing is actually in Whipped Icing as well that I made ahead of time. It’s the only part that I struggled with as I had not worked with Whipped Icing before.
But, I hear it was a hit with the anniversary couple 🙂
