As I’ve mentioned before, I did an 8 week cake decorating course with Cakes by Julie. In the last 2 weeks of the course you have to design and make your own ‘project’ cake using the skills learnt in the preceding weeks. I’d seen a cake made by Charly’s Bakery that was featured in the Get It Magazine which I used as my inspiration.
I hadn’t made a two-tiered cake like this before so I was quite keen to learn how it’s all put together. After lots of rose-making and circle-cutting, my black and white spotted cake with red roses was born! I’d never dreamed I was capable of making a cake like this and I have to thank Julie for teaching me so much!
The cake is a chocolate mud cake covered in chocolate ganache which is further covered in black and white fondant.
