A simple birthday cake for my sweet sister-in-law.
Purple fantasy flowers and leaves from wafer paper with chocolate fondant fern coils.
The inside was Devil's Food with espresso butter cream all covered in dark chocolate ganache.
We waited three days to cut it and it was much moister than I expected. Almost gooey.
I guess that ganache is great for sealing in moisture. Nice to know.
The cake rode for about 5 hours on the front seat of the car in pouring rain with no major mishaps.
Just a little slippage on what became the back side that I managed to repair a bit before it went under the knife.
Hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable long weekend!
