Here’s a cake I made for my mom’s b-day this past weekend.  It was a White Velvet Butter Cake, Cream Cheese Icing, Pineapple and Coconut Filling, and the decor was made with buttercream.  This was my first attempt at making roses.  I think they came out alright for my first time.

What a beautiful cake!  Your roses look great from what I can see.  Also you got the top of your frosting soooo smooth.  Great job!

Happy Birthday to your Mom!  Your cake looks great- I appreciate the roses, as I haven’t attempted them yet.  They look good and and I bet it was delicious.  Was your Mom thrilled?

Wallace, your classes are really paying-off!  The cake looks great!  Ditto Loopy - super-smooth top!!!

I would be eternally grateful if you would share the details of this pineapple coconut filling.  I have been searching for such a filling as this for an upcoming cake!!

Sorry it took me so long to respond.  Bascially, I took a fresh pinappple and cut it into chunks and some sweetened shredded coconut and prcessed it the blender.  The food processor will obviously work too. I made sure I left little chunks of pinapples so the filling would have a little bite to it.  I didn’t want the filling to be completely puree. I also added some superfine sugar (or you can use powdered sugar) to sweeten it up for my taste buds.  Wasn’t that much to it :o)

It was deeeeliiiiciousssss!!!  Yes, she really liked it.  She was amazed that I could make a cake that looks in her words “so professional.” I told my mom that I am far from having my cakes look professional LOL!
