This was from March. The first time I tried the mousseline and I just love it! The cake was cute but not anything really spectacular but my daughter loved it, that’s what counts. I did make the roses from mousseline, I thought they came out well. Thanks for looking!

Edited to add, they are some of the characters from the Madeline books.

Bernadette,

What an amazing cake - it IS spectacular! Look at the different frosting colors, etc. and the incredibly smooth finish. That’s precious!! I can’t wait to see more of your works of art!

Bernadette, what a lovely cake, your daughter must have been thrilled!  I particularly love the figures, are they fondant?  What flavor is the cake/frosting?  And are those sweet little flowers fondant cut outs?

Goodness, I thank you all for your kind comments, I’m flattered to receive them from such an esteemed group! Thanks so very much!

It’s Rose’s mousseline, just flavored with vanilla since it was a kiddie party and chocolate cake, pastry creme filling, it was very good. I use the upside-down method for smoothing cakes, it works best for me. It works great with meringue icings. The figures and the little flowers and that “grass” the Eiffel Tower is on are fondant.

I love making meringue roses, when they come out nicely then I just make more for the fun of it even if I don’t need them. Small things! grin

Thank you everyone!

Bernadette, what is the upside-down method?

oh, dear, now that you mention Eiffel, i completely forgot to share these i made for a dinner party with the Las Vegas motive.  The Eiffel was made with Golden Cage caramel.  The Luxor was made with brown rice done as Hector’s comfort food (Rose will post the recipe soon).

Great Tower, Hector!

Rozanne, here is the link for the Upside down method: Upside Down Method of Cake Decorating/Smoothing. I use it for all of my cakes, even with yucky shortening icings LOL and for squares, too. I love it!
