This is a cake I made in September for a friend. Special request... a replica of a 1979 wedding cake from an original photo! It was a very fun experience. It was my first "big" cake for someone other than one of my children! It was a freshly baked deep chocolate cake, w/ a chocolate mousse filling and homemade buttercream frosting. I love the buttercream frosting recipe I use. It's called a crusting buttercream. It is great to work with and taste SO GOOD!!!
I used a very crafty technique...something I have never heard of..called.. the "VIVA" papertowel!!!! It helps smooth out any parts of the frosting that might not be as smooth as you want it. I will start posting recipes really soon!
