Thank you everybody for the lovely compliments. I am so flattered. Thank you again.
The cake was Rose’s chocolate butter cake. I used the chart at the back of the book and made two 8” cakes. I used one cake for the bottom and cut the other cake in half and stacked it. I used the ganache glaze Rose posted on the blog to keep the cake moist. The buttercream was SMBC using Rose’s mousseline bc ingredient quantities. The coral, starfish etc were all piped with the SMBC and frozen before I placed them on the cake.
