i’m not gonna lie~ i used boxed mix for the chocolate. everytime i make one of rose’s cakes i have problems. the chocolate butter cake is delish but too dry and the last time i made a yellow it was too bitter, from the the leavening, i guess, but i have no idea what i did wrong. i used whimsical bakehouse recipe for the vanilla.
the frosting is the old standby, IMBC.
i saw a chef on utube make the flowers for the pink and used that technique. if i can find the link i’ll post it.
i used natural lighting, bit it’s a bit too dark, and the macro setting which is the little flower picture on you camera. it allows the camera to focus for a very close close up.
the pics are small because that was the largest size it would take. i guess my files are big, but if you click on the thumbnail you get a bigger version.
the monkeys are fondant. they are made from circles i cut with my pastry tips and assembled with vodka.
the only time i have had trouble with cake separating from the muffin cups was when i tried to make chiffon cupcakes per alton brown’s recipe. they were horrible.
thanks, everyone for the comments!
