This is the cake I made for my last Wilton class of Course 1. I did not want to post it until after it got to my daughter for her birthday! The cake is the same recipe Chocolate Layer cake as the mini cake a couple of posts back with the buttercream frosting using the Wilton classroom recipe with half butter, some almond extract and a dash of salt.
The roses are still a bit of a challenge. I do need to practice and hope to find time before the next class starts, but I am pleased how this cake came out and very happy that it managed it's way across the state in time for my daughter's birthday!
