Mom's Birthday Cake

My Mom's Birthday Cake:

** Fudgy, chocolate, 2-layer cake with chocolate chips, with mint buttercream frosting between the layers, topped with chocolate ganache frosting, and buttercream flowers & vines**

From the start of icing to the finished product:

- chocolate ganache (semi-sweet chocolate and heavy cream)...very easy to make and pour over the cake for a smooth shiny finish

-Using a round tip, i piped these vines on with light green buttercream icing

- Using a leaf tip, I added the leaves to the vines (if you use a coupler, you can change back and forth from the round tip to the leaf tip and use the same icing bag)

- The night before I covered cardboard with wax paper and made these pink flowers using the flower tip and pink butter cream icing, then left them covered overnight to harden

- A attached the premade flowers with a dot of buttercream icing, and that's's done!


  1. Amazing! I'm sure it tastes great as well!
