Hector's Rose Reappears Via Jenn

Oct 21, 2010 | From the kitchen of Rose

I was checking out this weeks' heavenly bakers to see each rendition of the cake of the week which was the Many-Splendored Quick Bread and low and behold: look what I found on Knitty Baker Jenn's blog--a stunning rendition of Hector's "rose valentine." I think it is the most perfect design for a heart-shape cake ever which Jenn adapted from a round version: The Strawberry Maria from The Cake Bible.

Thanks! Hector ^_^

H, thank you! When I piped it, I did remember your comment about following my own hands naturally and adapting to my own style. I love that you call it a quilt. I shall name this "Jenn's Quilted Heart."

Where can I find Jenn's blog? the cake looks absolutely gorgeous!

Beautifully done, Jenn! I think Hector's comparison to a beautiful quilt with gorgeous pleats is spot-on.

Congratulations on another wonderful cake!!!!

Jenn, the photo is great! so glad we are sharing this and so proud how the rose pattern off-center fits a heart cake. i also like the fact that you adapted your own piping pulse to what naturally was forming when piping. yours looks like a quilt with gorgeous pleats, wonderful.

i always tell my students to follow your own piping style rather than copying someone, and you got it!

Beautiful rendition, Jenn!

I saw it on her blog a couple weeks ago. It's really pretty. I also love how her choc genoise (hidden under all the luscious frosting) turned out. Great job, Jenn!
