A mini dogwood cake

Happy Birthday to my sweet friend Sara!!! - tomorrow! :)
I couldn't wait to share the cake I made for her because I already took it to her tonight!! :) I just love Sara...again, another amazing woman in my life! She has such strength, such sweetness, such a heart for her family, so much love for the Lord, and is always so generous and thoughtful to her friends!! - and very deserving of a yummmmy treat for her b-day!! We love you Sara!

I made her this sweet dogwood flower cake. Wow, it's hard to make small cakes! I don't know why, but maybe it's that there isn't much to them so trying to frost the sides of a little 2" - 3 tiered cake makes it interesting! :) HA! But fun...as always! This little cake had a bottom tier of about 3.5" and a top tier of about 2". I served it on a tea cup plate! :) It was either make a cake or stain my fence...so, the cake won out! - wheww - thank you Sara for having a birthday! :) It was brownie cake with marshmallow buttercream filling inside. The flower, leaves and want-to-be limbs :) are made of modeling chocolate. I have hot hands, so I wouldn't make a flower of that stuff again, but it just taste sooo much better than gumpaste that I've been trying to use it in place of that stuff - when possible.
Anyhoo...I like my first attempt at a dogwood flower. I look forward to doing it again with gumpaste!! Thanks for looking!!

  5. Hi, can I have a recipe please of this cake? It's kind of frustrating to find it in the recipe section without the recipe. When I click on replies to previous requests for recipe, nothing happens. Thanks in advance!
