Red Velvet Buttercream Rose Cake

It’s all about that cake, bout that cake, bout that cake… Sorry. But that song (with my personalized cake-y lyrics) is stuck in my head. Funny thing about it is, it is NOT all about that cake. At least, not for this blog post! It’s all about that buttercream. Red Velvet Buttercream. Deep, rich, vibrant […]

spumoni cake

Spumoni Rosette Cake!

Kinda.  I mean, in all honesty this cake was inspired from some ice cream I saw at the grocery store.  But when I saw it the first thing I thought was… Neapolitan Cake.  I need to make this “spumoni” into my Neapolitan Cake! So I did.  I mean, kinda.  I got the colors right… but […]

Rose Cake Party

Green Rosette Cake on Chinet New Cut Crystal

Do you have that one chore that you simply detest? For me, it’s washing the dishes. I would rather iron every single one of my husband’s shirts with military precision than do dishes. Especially baking dishes. I bake all the time, and after the preparation and assembly and decoration, the last thing I want to […]

Rainbow Birthday Cake

Swirly Rainbow Cake (Inside and Out!) #rainbow #cake #birthdaycake

My little girl turned five this past week.  Five!  In the midst of extensive Christmas baking, I took a break from all this green and red and peppermint and made a perfectly perfect girly girl cake. With Audrey’s help of course!  The last couple years I have let her “design” her cake;  she tells me […]

Christmas Surprise Inside Cake

Christmas Surprise Inside Cake #surpriseinside

I had no intention of sharing this cake. Everything that could go wrong, did. The multi-colored roses are oddly resembling a pile of mush.  The touch of green leaves is a more of a massive green undergrowth and has a life of its own. And the inside… well.  Lets just say that was not my […]

Pumpkin Pie Rose Cake

Pumpkin Pie Rose Cake!  The perfect way to jazz up pumpkin pie!

This “cake” was a fusion of two things I love.  My original Rose Cake design and Pumpkin Pie.  Let me be more specific… pumpkin pie smothered in whipped cream.   I have to tell you, the Buttercream Rosette Cake is near and dear to my heart.  Its by far the most popular cake I have ever […]

Rose Covered Checkerboard Cake

Original Rose Cake on Mackenzie-Childs Parchment Check Cake Stand

I had no intentions of making a Rose Cake.  I was actually planning on doing a tutorial for this cake, but something happened. I was so inspired by the whimsical beauty of the MacKenzie-Childs products, I just couldnt help myself!  Since I knew the interior was a checkboard design, I thought the soft Rosette’s would […]

Patriotic Rose Cake {Video Tutorial}

Did you know that the Rose is the National Flower? Did you know I just made that up so that a Patriotic Rose Cake would seem more natural? A very smart reader, Lisa, shared this (thanks Lisa!) : “The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States of America in […]

Neapolitan Rose Cake

This is the original Neapolitan Rose Cake… everything else is just a copy! UPDATED: Video Tutorial HERE I am obsessed with Neapolitan lately.  And if you are friends with me on Instagram you already know this. I shared this picture yesterday.  As well as another picture of the pre-frosted cakes the day before. And I […]

Rose Cake Tutorial

Original Rose Cake by iambaker.net

SO excited to share with you how easy it is to make the rose cake. (Video tutorial HERE.  In four minutes I frost an entire three layer Rose Cake!) Seriously, once you see you are going to run right out, buy a 1M tip, and make one. That or go back to work. Or bed. […]

Vertical Layer Rose Cake

*Tutorial HERE! I have been dreaming about this cake for about a month. Dreaming of layers that went up and down instead of horizontally. Dreaming of obscene amounts of delicate frosting roses. Dreaming of a variety of flavors. And finally, my dream has come true. Normally I share recipes and techniques and design aspects and […]
