So I made the Grand Marnier cake again for a raffle.  The bowling league was hoping he would cut the cake, but he took it home (LOL).  I used Les Perles this time instead of Nestle Mini Morsels.  The ganache did not take long to set and seem correct texture when I started using it…but it sets up really fast as I was trying to smooth it.  I think next time I will add more heavy cream.  Meanwhile, I love creating the orange rose…..(ooops fingerprint… need to start rose earlier).

Renee, that cake is beautiful—love the almonds around the edge, and the orange is beautiful!

Thank you all….you are so kind! I too, absolutely love doing those citrus roses.  I simply cannot discard lemon or orange peel anymore.  The question always is zest or candied peel.

That looks gorgeous!  Your rose is absolute perfection, including the photo.  Too bad he took it home…  I would have wanted at least a tiny piece after going through all the work to make it smile

Thank you, Julie.  I often wonder “is the inside like it’s supposed to be”.  I had a really hard time with this photo for some reason. And, I have learned that yellow walls (my kitchen) are not ideal.  I keep trying.
