Chocolate Mum Cake and Sugar Flowers
Sugar flowers are my favorite part of decorating cakes. I love making new kinds of flowers and trying to make them look as real as possible. I even love making the whimsical flowers. Making sugar flowers is relaxing to me and it’s fun. I always love when people ask me to make the flowers for their cake because it’s a challenge. A really great challenge. Im always trying to get better, to make more realistic looking flowers.
This cake was made of alternating layers of yellow cake and chocolate cake. One of my all time favorite cake flavor combos is yellow cake and milk chocolate ganache frosting…so good.
The sugar mums were an experiment. I actually think they turned out really nice. Next time I make them I think I can get them looking even better.
Peonies are going to be big again this year, I can tell. People love them. I love them. If you asked me to make them for you, I would say yes.
