There are many talented bakers out there, but I have to say I AM BAKER is one of my favorites. Amanda is sheer genius when it comes to putting cakes together. When I saw her roses cake, I knew I just HAD to give it a try.
Three fabulous reasons to make this cake ~
1. Its incredibly beautiful on the outside
2. Its very different on the inside
3. It makes two beautiful cakes
The vertical layers on the inside make this gorgeous cake even more special.
If you want the step by step instructions go on over to I Am Baker, the instructions are easy to follow.
In any case, I’ll nutshell it just so you can get the idea. First you’ll start with 2 cakes, each cake 2 layers, I used 9 “ pans. These are basic white cake and red velvet cake.
Make a template with each circle about 1” apart. Cut both cakes the same way.
Remember this is only an overview of the instructions, go to I AM BAKER for FULL instructions.
This is what they look like assembled.
Once they’re together you’ll want to wrap them tightly to seal them and pop them back in the fridge for a while.
Whip up a batch of homemade butter cream or use whatever frosting you like most.. just make sure its a stiff, crusting icing. For the roses, use a 1M tip. Start at the centre and swirl out from there.
The roses look beautiful in white, but I was dying to try another color. I tinted the icing a deep rose color.
Spread a thin layer of icing all over the cake first then begin your roses.
