How To Make An Incredible Rose Cake

Cakes and flowers just seem to complement each other. It’s something about the colors and shapes of flowers that make them the perfect shape to emulate and decorate a cake with. Vanessa of Cake Style takes this idea a step further and makes a “ginormous” sculpted rose cake that is a real showstopper!

Vanessa says she uses modeling chocolate instead of fondant for the pedals as “Fondant would have to have padding to support for the better part of a day, and the petals on the last row, could easily droop or break.”

Personally, I prefer the taste of chocolate over fondant, so that’s a change I like!

Take a look at Vanessa’s tutorial for her Beautiful Rose cake below! Please share this amazing recipe with your friends!
