Sally's Birthday Cake
This is the cake that I made for a sweet lady named Sally. She loves the color purple, so I made lots of purple "roses" to go on her cake. It's a white butter cake with raspberry mousse and buttercream. The roses are made out of fondant. I'll show how to make them soon. They are super easy! The topper is made out of clay. I try to make it look like the birthday boy/girl and then I add lots of little things to represent their interests. For example...Sally likes to knit, she makes her own beautiful rosaries, she's a hygienist and she loves her kids more than anything. Her Crocs are my favorite part. I make the topper out of clay so it's like two gifts in one. You get to eat a nummy cake and then have something to take home and keep.
