My take on the Rose Trellis cake from TCB.  I made a tiny 6 inch one.  Made piping the trellis a lot harder, had to rework the design because it was so small.  I still have to attach the trellis, but this is a picture of what it’ll hopefully look like when finished.  I feel kinda accomplished now that I’m done, this was a very time consuming cake to make.

Finally finished, here’s the completed cake.  Hopefully when i transport it, the rose trellis won’t break.  *crosses fingers*

What a BEAUTIFUL cake, you should be very pleased with the result!  It looks so delicate and fragile.  Is it for any particular occasion or iis it just a practice piece?

Thanks for the comments everyone.  I’m pretty proud, was the hardest cake I made to date, when i started it I started with the rose trellis part i thought I wouldn’t be able to do it cause it kept falling apart, but it worked out in the end so I was extremely happy.  I made it for a friend’s birthday, giving it to her tomorrow, hope she likes it.

yup, golden cream cake with strawberry buttercream.  It worked out perfectly cause the recipe was for 1 9” round which fits in 2 6” rounds perfectly so I didn’t have to do adjustments.  so I went with it.  Then i was thinking if I should be lazy and use American buttercream, which i used to make the rose on top, but figured I’ll go the extra mile and just make neoclassic buttercream for the inside and use the American for decorations only.  I think its elegant but at the same time i feel like something is missing, like maybe its a little too plain.  But its better to air on the side of less then go overboard and make the cake look too busy.

It’s so pretty. I don’t think it’s plain, I think it’s simple and elegant. I love the color combo of the white cake, white trellis, and pink roses. The roses look perfect too! Your friend is very lucky.

I agree—“simple” and “elegant”—not “plain!” And also “lovely!” and “Wow!”

Oh my goodness. This is just beautiful!  I’m soooo impressed.  I have been looking at the picture of this cake in the book for years, and I think about doing it…and then it just seems like it will be too much work and too difficult!  Good for you!  Amazing.
